Lew gets his due — Jack Lew is confirmed as Treasury Secretary. Along with the approval of Chuck Hagel as DefSec, maybe a little momentum for more Cabinet noms?

An ‘F’ for false — The Fact Checker schools Education Secretary Arne Duncan on his dubious claims about the effects of the sequester on schools.

Strange politics — A U.N. committee that’s “wacky” enough on its own now has Syrian leadership. A look

Home improvement? — The late Sen. Ted Kennedy’s former McLean home is going to be razed to make way for a “ mini Versailles” McMansion.
