New experimental format this time: I'm going to just turn it over to all of you, and save the time for Watergate. General reminder: the way I've thought about "what mattered" is extremely open-ended: it can matter for electoral politics or policy or anything else substantive. It can be something that happened this week, or something that happened in the past but was revealed this week. Anyway, I'm not sure whether this is a one-time thing or what...I've thought that this item was getting really stale, so maybe this will open it up a little.
So, what do you think? What mattered this week?
