    Washington Week [#5222H] This week provided some good lessons on the workings of Washington and the inside/outside maneuvering that sometimes goes on to get things done.
    * With the fiscal cliff deadline looming, there were no "formal" negotiations scheduled this week but plenty of political jockeying between the White House and congressional Republicans regarding their positions on taxes and spending. One of the key sticking points for Republican lawmakers is President Obama's push to let tax cuts expire for wealthier Americans. What will it take to break the deadlock and reach a deal prior to the New Year? We'll get answers and analysis from both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue from Mike Viqueira of NBC News and Susan Davis of USA Today.
    * Meanwhile, US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice spent part of the week on Capitol Hill meeting with members of Congress and answering critics' questions about comments she made regarding the deadly attack in Benghazi, Libya in September. But her efforts to win GOP support from those opposing her possible nomination to be Secretary of State were less than successful with some vowing to block her nomination. Gloria Borger of CNN will examine how the controversy surrounding Rice raises the possibility President Obama will start his second term with a nasty confirmation fight.
