Pelosi's ambitious agenda for the first 100 hours (hours?) of her speakership.

"Pelosi also has said that in the first 100 hours of her speakership she will push for action implementing all 9/11 Commission recommendations on national security, raising the minimum wage to $7.25, eliminating corporate subsidies for oil companies, allowing the government to negotiate Medicare drug prices, imposing new restrictions on lobbyists, cutting interest rates on college loans and supporting embryonic stem-cell research." (CNN)

Notice that the national security goal is the first listed. I'm encouraged by the Dems' hopeful stance and ambitious goals. The party in power is always calling for bi-partisanship, and although I'm skeptical, I still hope that they both will mean it this time. At least for a little while.
