Just like Newt Gingrich twelve years ago with his "Contract with America", Speaker Pelosi is trying to start off with a bang during her / the Democrats first 100 hours of having the majority. With eight hour days that's twelve and one-half days or two and a half weeks.
Some, including Sean Hannity, criticized Pelosi and the Democrats on holding off on their start because of the NCAAF / BCS national championship game. Actually I don't feel bad about them doing it or about them not counting the "lunch hours" in that first hundred hours. Mostly, it stretches the two and a half weeks into nearly three weeks.
Second, it was requested by the Republican House leader - Sean is really being a fool for criticizing the Democrats for listening to the Republicans requests. He probably expects Democrats to act like Republicans. No, we're not Republicans. We actually listen to the minority.
