Italian Deputy Prime Minister to honor Pelosi
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- House Speaker-designate Nancy Pelosi isn't just the first female to lead the House of Representatives. The California Democrat is also the first Italian-American to ascend to Congresses' top post, a milestone Italian Deputy Prime Minister Francesco Rutelli is set to honor Tuesday.
Rutelli ventures to Pelosi's Capitol Hill office at 11:15 a.m. ET to deliver his accolades in person. The two will appear for photographs shortly after.
