Hastert caves in 

From the daily kos:

Hastert caves on 9-11

Ha ha. Rove ordered Hastert to take the heat for blocking the two-month extension for the 9-11 commission. He took the heat, and it was an all-out inferno.

Hastert has backed down.

And do we love Pelosi or what?

Pelosi said she found Hastert's resistance to Bush questionable.

"I don't know if this is a good cop-bad cop arrangement between the President and the speaker," Pelosi said. "If President Bush truly wanted the 9-11 commission to complete its work, Congress will respond."

She called Rove's bluff, and the commission got its extension.

It'll be great to see Pelosi as Speaker of the House. And it's great seeing Hastert with egg on his face. That'll teach him to do the administration's dirty work for them.
