Well, we had at the beginning of the week elections in France and Greece, and all week the attempts to form a Greek government. So circling back again to Europe and the economy.
Do we count the new Israeli government as something that mattered?
In the US, Barack Obama's evolution on marriage, even though again its importance is likely more symbolic than anything else -- but symbols can matter.
And the defeat of Dick Lugar is rather a big deal, I believe.
What else? What do you think mattered this week?
