Congress has one chamber in session. On these slow news days, we try to dig a little deeper to find nice moments that tell stories. I love how Bill framed the Dome under the arm of this piece of equipment to capture the Capitol in a way that drags your eye right into the frame. Bonus points for showing the beginning of the first phase of a three-part turf-restoration project on the National Mall.
Vice President Joe Biden waits to conduct a mock swearing-in ceremony with Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, in the Capitol's Old Senate Chamber, December 2, 2014. Schatz was sworn in to serve the remainder of his term since he was appointed to the seat after Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii, passed away.
