*DCist has got a primer on inauguration ticket availability. Bottom line: Good luck.

*WTOP has the skinny on new traffic patterns in Penn Quarter, thanks to Obama offices moving in. Wonder if the Obamanians have read about their neighborhood getting overrun by youths. Oh, right, that’s their constituency!

*Politico runs down the losers of the week (not a tough one, granted).

*Further evidence of the deep rot within the Board of Elections and Ethics.

*Postie Anne Kornblut pulls in a big six-figure sum for a book on the tough road for a female presidential candidate. Probably best just to read the executive summary in the Outlook section this past weekend.
