Gwen's Take: ""But what John Kerry wanted to talk about as we sat down in the State Department’s ornate Madison Room, was Barack Obama – specifically about why the President is getting a bum rap on foreign policy," writes Gwen on her interview with State Secy. John Kerry.

"Simply attaching the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag to anything on Twitter guarantees a huge response...The problem with this story, as is often the case with campaigns that catch fire all of a sudden, is that -– as horrible as the abduction is -– the underlying issues that led to this moment are complicated."

Gwen's Take: "Washington does not lack for smugness. It takes only one committee vote, or one fancy dinner to send many of us into paroxysms of self-congratulation... But we are not alone in this. A brief survey of the week’s headlines should reassure anyone that overreaching is a common problem."

Gwen's Take: "It is an entirely human condition to pine for the good old days, when candy cost a penny, hopscotch was the best way to spend recess and politicians actually talked to, not only at, one another."

Gwen's Take: "From where I sit in Washington -– as midterm malaise sets in once again -– it’s breathtaking to look back on a time when so much got done."
