Hearing Begins With Swipe At Bernanke-- Literally

The nation's economic woes just came within an inch of getting a lot worse.

A tired-looking Ben Bernanke walked into today's House hearing at 2:29 p.m. -- and came within a hair of being clocked in the face by a TV cameraman who was whipping around to get a shot of him. A Secret Service guy nudged the offender firmly aside.

The Dow is up about 25 points at the start of the hearing.
