Our Most Impressive Democrat Of The Week was Representative Zoe Lofgren, who (with a Republican co-sponsor) this week introduced legislation to regulate the use of drones for domestic police work.
It was the sip heard round the world! At least it took some of the attention off of Obama. Boy was that a long speech... was anyone really listening? And who really believes in climate change?
The GOP remains so obstinate and unwilling to give the White House even the tiniest of victories they filibustered a Cabinet appointment... from their own party.

Tuesday night the American people saw a tale of two nations. And the difference could not have been any greater had Dickens himself written it.
Let's agree that partisan bickering can be set aside in 2013 in order to address the critical broken rungs on the ladder of opportunity. Both parties agree that change needs to happen; it is time to raise Opportunity Scores in all 50 states as private sector and nonprofit leaders are already doing.
The Republican Party was done a disservice last night. It was a bashing session of President Obama when it could have been a grand opportunity to show the direction the GOP is moving in.
