No spring break for the president. Yesterday, Obama made fifteen recess appointments, and today, as Newsweek noted, he's in Afghanistan. The surprise visit caps a week that's almost hard to believe. Over the last seven days, health care reform passed, a major overhaul of federal student loan programs passed, the terms of a breakthrough nuclear arms treaty with Russia were reached, and now this trip.
Not bad for a guy that many had written off as "ineffective".
