Today would have been my father’s 85th birthday. RIP, Chief.

Here are some remains of the day:

* Elizabeth Warren tells her top donors she’s not big supporter of Secretary of Treasury-designate Antonio Weiss.

* Pelosi razzes Chuck Schumer’s criticism of decision to enact Affordable Care Act.

* Polls confirming elite reactions: lack of indictment in Garner case a lot less popular than in Brown case.

* At Ten Miles Sqaure, John Beaton pens a profile of the newest member of the D.C. Circuit, Robert Wilkins, a pioneering civil rights attorney.

* At College Guide, CJ Libassi reports on new research documenting positive effects of all-day kindergarten.

And in non-political news:

* Big winter weather system moving into Northeast
