Icing on the Cake

by Kathryn Jean Lopez

for the Speaker and for inner-city children in Washington, D.C.: The D.C. scholarship program John Boehner has fought for is in the deal. The bill the House passed last month to extend the program will be signed by the president, despite his opposition. 

John Boehner just walked Barack Obama into being a civil-rights leader.

I imagine the negotiations on that might have been happening about the time the president was speaking to Al Sharpton’s group this week, ironically. 

That’s a great victory.
