Video of the Day: Nancy Pelosi Boogies Down at Barney Frank's Wedding

The House Democratic leader partied late into the night at the first Congressional gay wedding.

On Monday, the New York Times' Michael Grynbaum reported the delicious detail that while John Kerry bailed on Rep. Barney Frank's weekend wedding early, Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stayed late into the night, cutting a rug on the Weather Girls classic "It's Raining Men."

As tantalizing as the report was, there was no video to prove it. Thankfully, we now have evidence of Pelosi's dancing skills, which are impressive for a 72-year-old -- though sadly, there's no footage (as yet) of "It's Raining Men." In this somewhat shaky clip, she busts some moves with Terry Bean, Frank's co-best man. With his nuptials to Jim Ready, Frank became the first member of Congress to be gay married, although the outspoken Massachusetts Democrat is leaving office at the end of his current term.
