Funny Awkward... Pelosi Gets a Kiss From Newly Re-Elected Boehner
The picture of the day seems to be the awkward display of affection between John Boehner and Nancy Pelosi.
Twitter had a bit of fun with this following the swearing-in ceremony for the 114th Congress.

Boehner was re-elected to a third term as House Speaker, fending off challenges from three conservative lawmakers.
Pelosi formally introduced the teary-eyed Boehner Tuesday afternoon, handing over the gavel to a standing ovation from lawmakers.
Of course, it wasn't long before the Chris Christie man-hug made its way into the awkwardness.
