This has been a big week for big politicians with a lot at stake.

We kicked things off with President Obama’s inauguration. Yesterday Hillary Clinton masterfully endured a day of tough questioning regarding Benghazi. And today our own Senator John Kerry faces the Senate Foreign Relations Committee for his Secretary of State confirmation hearing.
