After the ceremony in which House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., handed the gavel over to Speaker John Bohener, R-Ohio, Brit Hume remarked on FOX News that he thought Pelosi had given a longer speech. Hume was correct -- Pelosi's speech was over ten minutes, and Boehner's about nine, according to the C-Span archive.

In her defense, Boehner is a man of few words.
