"Friendly, not pompous and not annoyed by my ignorance"

Fox News' Greta Van Susteren posted on her blog, Gretawire, about meeting Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Miami, in an elevator in the U.S. Capitol Tuesday. The Fox News celebrity was taken with Wilson's hat -- and apparently unaware she was speaking to a congresswoman. 

"A bit later I probed further and asked what she does and she said 'I am in Congress.' I said, 'oops.'  I was embarrassed that I did not recognize her.  I apologized and she was gracious. She didn’t care.  I admired that she was friendly, not pompous and not annoyed by my ignorance. As for the hat?  She has lots of fancy ones!"

Wilson noted the Gretawire post on Twitter, adding this: "Great meeting u, Ms. Greta!"
