By Nikki Schwab, Washington Whispers
It seems that each and every apartment and house in Washington will be crammed with people visiting the city for Barack Obama's inauguration, including that of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She tells Whispers she's expecting her Washington Harbor penthouse to be filled to the brim. "Oh my gosh yes, we are overflowing," she says. She's planning for an influx of family, including her seven grandchildren, some of whom can't attend both Pelosi's swearing in, being held this afternoon at the Capitol, and Barack Obama's. "They said to me, 'We can't take all that time off of school, so do you mind if we just come for Barack Obama?' " she tells us. And being an understanding granny, she insisted they indeed come for the inauguration of the first black president.
