No timeouts for this congressman

No football timeout for Congress.

Tomorrow night, the championship game between number-two Florida and number-one Oklahoma will be played in Miami.

Florida Congressman Cliff Stearns is hoping to go the big game.

He gave a handwritten note to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, asking her to consider rescheduling votes.

But it looks like Stearns, a Republican, is being tackled for a loss.

Pelosi's office says there won't be a change in the Congressional schedule.

Among the issues to be considered tomorrow afternoon: certification of the Electoral College vote that gives Barack Obama the presidency.
