Speaker Pelosi

Before Democrats can challenge Bush on anything and undo the damage of the last six 12 years, and before we can do anything to shorten this war and put this foreign policy into receivership, this had to occur.

Godspeed Speaker Pelosi.

Update: And yes, for some reason, Denny Hastert could not bring himself to hand the gavel to Pelosi and instead he handed it to John Boehner, who then made the symbolic transfer. Maybe climbing the steps one last time for a moment captured in film was too much for Denny.

Update #2: Snark and Peter remind me that it may not be House custom for the outgoing Speaker to pass the gavel to the incoming one. If so, it may be acceptable for Boehner to do this.
