The San Francisco Chronicle reports on a “4-day fete set for Pelosi’s historic swearing-in:”

12-16) 04:00 PST Washington — Tony Bennett is coming, of course, to croon his trademark “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.”

Carole King and Wyclef Jean will be there. Mayor Gavin Newsom is scheduled to be there, too.

And a big delegation of San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and labor leaders is jetting back East, together no less.

All will converge on Washington in early January to take part in four days of events surrounding the swearing-in of Rep. Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, who will be elected the new speaker of the House and the first woman and first Californian to occupy the post.

It took all of one day to coronate a real queen, Queen Elizabeth II, in 1953.   Why should it take four days for the Speaker of the House?
