Monday in Washington, January 4, 2016

Washingtonians return slowly from the holidays, grumpy but happy to get away from the family. Universities are still on break and think tankers will slowly return from their vacations this week. The Capital City  will start off slowly and crescendo to the President's early State of the Union address on January 12th. The President returns on January 3, the House on January 5, and the Senate on January 11. The Martin Luther King Holiday is January 18th and the Davos World Economic Forum is January 20-23. With an election year ahead, the political wonks and junkies will be in full gear.
