Cokie Roberts: Pelosi Photo-Op 'Fun, Completely Natural'

Looks as if Nancy Pelosi has found a rooting section at ABC. As we detailed here yesterday, Charley Gibson fawned over Nancy Pelosi's baby-clutching photo-op. This morning, Cokie Roberts joined the claque. Appearing on This Week, she enthused:

"Great images, you're absolutely right. And completely natural. . . That baby knew that grandmother even though it's only a few weeks old. All those other children were completely comfortable with her. And it was, it was just, fun. It wasn't in any way stilted and awful."

Pelosi, completely natural and comfortable? Not nearly as natural and comfortable as was Cokie -- singing the praises of a new Dem Speaker of the House.
