Nancy Pelosi on Her Favorite Political Blogs

Question: What are your favorite political blogs?

Nancy Pelosi: What is my favorite political blog? Well, now again I'll be naming some to the exclusion of others. But I have to start with my own daughter, Christine Pelosi's Trailmix; I like Huffington Post.

What else? We have Talking Points Memo. I appreciate the work they did on the Justice Department and the U.S. attorneys.

Of course, the Daily Kos, how could I not say the Daily Kos? That was where many of us started in the blogosphere. So I'd have to name that.

Oh, there are many--just depends on the issue and the time and the rest, but for the starters my daughter's Trailmix, Christine Pelosi. 

Now, in addition to those, of course, I would have to include my own blog, The Gavel and invite others to join in.

And what more can I say? We all have to think big.
