CapitolQuip-01-19-15-Boehner copy.jpg Well, this week you can try your hand at both. Send us a caption for both of the cartoons this week by leaving it in the comments section, just make sure to mark it clearly with “Obama:” and alternatively, “Boehner:” before offering your quip. Editors will pick five finalists Wednesday, and everyone can vote for the winner through Thursday.
