IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE EXPECTATIONS WERE SO EXTREMELY HIGH FOR the changing of the guard in Washington. But today at noon Eastern time, new conservative House members---the class of 2012-- will take their chairs and begin firing numerous rounds of ammunition. I'll be back a little later to talk about what's realistic and what's not when it comes to hope and change that can be wrought by the freshmen class of mostly conservative new Congressmen.
Oh and iPads will be allowed on the House floor and even on the podium. However, cowgirl hats--or any kind of hat--will not.
