Warning: Do not keep reading if you haven't watched the first three episodes of "House of Cards" Season 2 yet. On deck for Tuesday (Feb. 18), "Chapter 16."

Everything seems fine, with Frank working with Senate Majority Leader Hector Mendoza to hammer out a compromise and get him to write in a formal agreement that if the Senate passes the retirement age amendment, it will signify passage of the entire omnibus bill.
