ROME US Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was hospitalised on Monday after feeling unwell during a visit to Rome, Italian news agencies said.

Pelosi, in Italy to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Italian nation, was scheduled to meet with Defence Minister Ignazio La Russa and Gianfranco Fini, head of the lower house of parliament, when she felt "slightly unwell."

The Italian-American democrat was forced to cancel her meeting with La Russa and postpone the one with Fini. She is undergoing tests in Rome's Umberto I hospital, the agencies said.

The American Embassy refused to comment.

5. I hope that she is feeling better soon.
I love this description of her 'The Italian-American democrat'. It is so interesting to see how some people can have reference made to their family lineage while others are ostracized for it.

14. UPDATED: Pelosi has returned to her hotel
From NBC's Luke Russert
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was hospitalized during a trip to Rome after feeling ill, NBC News confirms.

Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), a member of the delegation traveling with Pelosi, told NBC News from Italy that the House Minority Leader underwent a few tests but is now out of the hospital.

"She's at the hotel now, Pascrell told NBC News. She's fine, she's in good shape. Just a few tests to make sure she was all right."

Pascrell and Pelosi were traveling with a bipartisan delegation in Afghanistan before the stop in Italy.

21. The Dutch Gay loves her, because she is a human and for her
Edited on Mon Mar-21-11 01:12 PM by JanDutchy
great support for the first Dutchman who was banned because he acknowlegde have safe-sex and was prisoned under USA-law. Wi.th her - and others - support: he was freed and could travel to the AIDS-conference in your country.
It took a lot of years to the moment political view and stigmatization changed. Whe are now able to visit USA, with or without HIV, because the ban was lift up.

I lift up my deep feelings and wishes her all the best! She is worth to be your next President - and a litte of mine/ours!
