QUOTES OF THE DAY….Well, quotes of yesterday, anyway:

  • Nancy Pelosi, on George Bush’s insistence that he and Dick Cheney will only talk to the 9/11 commission together: “It’s embarrassing to the president of the United States that they won’t let him go in without holding the hand of the vice president of the United States. I think it reinforces the idea that the president cannot go it alone. The president should stand tall, walk in the room himself and answer the questions.”

  • Jamie Gorelick, on the continuing cat and mouse games Bush is playing with the 9/11 commission: “We can’t afford to have documents that are relevant to our inquiry being withheld on a technicality. This is not litigation. This is finding facts to help the nation, and we should not treat this as if we’re adversarial parties here.”
