Cloudy skies shroud the Capitol in Washington, early Thursday morning, Nov. 21, 2013. Senate Democratic and Republican leaders are at odds over the rules that govern the upper chamber. The Senate is nearing a potential showdown on curbing the power that the Republican minority has to block President Barack Obama’s nominations, as Democrats edge toward muscling a rewrite of filibuster rules through the chamber. Work in Congress winds down rapidly at the end of the day as lawmakers retreat for a two-week Thanksgiving break.  (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)
