(Newser) – The strangest moment in today's power handoff in Washington had to be Nancy Pelosi's comment about John Boehner's gavel: "I now pass this gavel, which is larger than most gavels here, but the gavel of choice of Speaker Boehner." The comment set off laughter (eventually from Pelosi herself) and even a whistle in the House audience. CNN reported that Boehner picked the oversized one because it was specially made by one of his constituents for the occasion, notes the Daily Caller.
