What Mattered This Week?

Egypt, obviously. What else? I didn't hear anything in the SOTU that really qualified, and the speech itself, as I said before, I thought was basically a dud. SOTU speeches matter, as Ezra Klein noted in an excellent item earlier in the week, because of the process that produces them. But no one is going to be quoting this one down the road. Then there was the filibuster compromise in the Senate, which as I've said I think is much less of a big deal than some others believe.

So -- what do you think mattered this week?
