I'm just way behind in reading things that I'm not going to write about immediately, but I better get this up now rather than wait until I get caught up. So here goes, but I probably need more help than usual for things I totally missed.
International: Syria, again, and Afghanistan, again.
Back home...the jobs numbers are certainly important, both in themselves and as a hint of what's to come. I suppose it was a very big week in the GOP race, but I'm not sure how much of it mattered...I suppose the biggest thing there that didn't happen that mattered was the lack of a Santorum breakthrough. No surprise, but had he won big in Ohio and, say, Alaska...maybe that would have indicated something significant was going on? As it is, they're still just playing out the string there.
Two Members were defeated in Ohio, one in a Member-Member contest after redistricting, and another by a challenger.
So, what else? What am I missing? What do you think mattered this week?
