Photo of the Week: A Bittersweet Farewell

Scott J. Ferrell/CQ Roll Call

Sen. Chris Dodd meets his wife, Jackie, and daughters Grace and Christina after giving his farewell speech Tuesday on the Senate floor, capping a 36-year Congressional career. “What will determine whether this institution works or not, what has always determined whether we will fulfill the framers’ highest hopes or justify the cynics’ worst fears, is not the Senate rules, the calendar or the media,” the retiring Connecticut Democrat said. “It is whether each of the 100 Senators can work together — living up to the incredible honor that comes with the title, and the awesome responsibility that comes with the office.”
