Pelosi: "I'm praying for President Bush"

Pelosi: "I'm praying for President Bush"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., positioned herself on Friday for a major standoff with President Bush over a children's health insurance bill she supports but which he promised to veto, but there are apparently no hard feelings between the two.

Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., held an "enrollment" ceremony for the doomed bill, enclosing the document with their signatures into a fancy binder before handing if off to a House Clerk Lorraine Miller, who will take it to Bush and his veto pen.

Just prior to the event, Pelosi called Bush and told him she is praying for him and praying that he would change his mind and sign the bill, which expands a federal insurance program by $35 billion over five years, far in excess of Bush's own proposal.

"It was a friendly, friendly conversation," said Pelosi (as retold to Yeas & Nays by Washington Examiner congressional correspondent Susan Ferrechio). "He said, 'I like people who don't give up,' and I said 'I know you can identify with that.'"
