Nancy Pelosi ditches her schedule to greet Obama

CBS reports that Speaker Nancy Pelosi jumped out of her weekly press briefing to greet Senator Obama during his visit to the House of Reps.

Sen. Barack Obama stepped into a swarm of superdelegates yesterday morning when he visited the House of Representatives in the middle of a vote. Obama stayed on the floor for almost half an hour visiting with both Democrats and Republicans who looked completely star struck.

Even Speaker Nancy Pelosi left her weekly press briefing and made a beeline for the House floor to say hello. And the Capitol Hill press corps surrounded the House Chamber to catch him on his way out and fire questions about such an unusual move for a presidential candidate, even if he is a senator.
