Nancy Pelosi Says Healthcare Protests May Turn Violent

"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she worries that angry rhetoric over President Barack Obama's effort to remake the nation's health care system could incite violence.

Speaking to reporters Thursday, the California Democrat was asked whether she was worried about the tone of the debate.
