The speaker's first move was to announce the installation of women's bathrooms closer to the House floor (the closest is currently a hike through Statuary Hall). His second move: lifting the ban on electronic devices other than phones on the House floor. Neither one is earth-shaking, but both show his commitment to bringing Congress into the 21st century. Next: passage of new rules to cut spending and increase transparency, as promised in the GOP's pre-election Pledge to America. Good luck with that. [See who donates the most money to Boehner.]
