So, I spent most of the day covering Nancy Pelosi's visit to Meredith College in Raleigh. She's the highest ranking woman in U.S. history and Meredith is an all female college so that was an interesting perspective by itself.
Secretary of State here in NC Elaine Marshall was there as well. Check out the story on news14.com for details on her appearance. I'll write more about the behind the scenes event here later.
Interestingly enough, I was bombarded by emails from a group called NC Peace Action. They are anti war folks. They were ticked because Pelosi was taking questions from the audience but it was all pre picked and pre screened. The group wanted to question her why she can't get troops out of Iraq. I also got an email that NC State college Republicans were going to protest as well.
In the end we saw one man and he didn't cause much of a fuss.
More on the event hopefully a little later.
One last plug---Judge Manning on Political Connections tonight at 6 and Sunday at 11am and on our website in an hour and ondemand Ch. 1234 starting Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!
