Monday - President Obama gave a great "liberal" inauguration speech, freaking out the punditry.
Wednesday - Secretary of State Clinton took the Republicans in Congress to school, embarrassing them.
Thursday - John Kerry spoke at his confirmation hearing for Secretary of State, smacking down as necessary.
(Friday - A snow day in Maryland, finally!)
Yeah, I know there've been some downers too -- filibuster brick wall, new ways for GOP to steal elections, decision making Congressional "In/Out" gestures block appointments. But it's also worth enjoying moments like those we had this week, and remembering them.
