The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
This week’s Who Won the Week winners are Kamala Harris and Nancy Pelosi. On Wednesday night, President Joe Biden delivered his first prime-time speech to a joint session of Congress. And behind him he was flanked by Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, two California Democrats.The two women made history that night as the first women — one of them Black and Indian American — to share the stage in Congress during a presidential address.
Biden noted the historic event at the very opening of his address. After taking the podium, Biden greeted the two women standing behind him with a “Madam Speaker” and “Madam Vice President.”
He then declared, “No president has ever said those words — and it’s about time.”
Maybe it won’t be too much longer before the individual giving a prime time presidential address to a joint session of Congress will be introduced as “Madam President.”
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
