The new Congressional session started today. In a rare moment of unity and collegiality, lots of members of Congress and the Vice President joined in cheering on Senator Mark Kirk, who walked up the Senate steps for the first time after suffering a stroke last year. Watch video of the Kirk's climb and try not to tear up a little.
So what we learned today is that these people really can come together and be downright nice to each other. Now wouldn't it be nice if they could take that capability and apply it to other matters?
