Nancy Pelosi Cuts Short Press Conference, Makes "Beeline" For Obama During His DC Visit

CBS caught Senator Obama on Capitol Hill in a swarm of journalists today. CBS also reports that Speaker Pelosi jumped out of her weekly press briefing to greet the Senator. Read more below and watch video:

Sen. Barack Obama stepped into a swarm of superdelegates this morning when he visited the House of Representatives in the middle of a vote. Obama stayed on the floor for almost half an hour visiting with both Democrats and Republicans who looked completely star struck.

Even Speaker Nancy Pelosi left her weekly press briefing and made a beeline for the House floor to say hello. And the Capitol Hill press corps surrounded the House Chamber to catch him on his way out and fire questions about such an unusual move for a presidential candidate, even if he is a senator.
