Pelosi praises McCain -- sort of

From NBC's Mike Viqueira
Speaker Nancy Pelosi is gladly accepting praise from McCain -- but to an extent.

She was asked at the end of her weekly on-camera session with reporters about McCain's reported praise for her. "I respect Speaker Pelosi. I think she's one of the great American success stories," McCain told the San Francisco Chronicle.

Pelosi says that she and McCain "have worked wonderfully together" in the past on such issues as campaign finance reform (she had to bring THAT up) and global warming.

"I look forward to continue working with him in the United States Senate," she concluded to laughter.
