In addressing the 113th Congress today, House Speaker John Boehner choked up during the conclusion of his remarks.
"If you've come here humbled ... by the opportunity to serve; if you've come here to be the determined voice of the people; if you've come here to carry the standard of leadership demanded not by our constituents, but by the times -- then you've come to the right place."
