I was wondering if anybody on here know how to edit a photo in Photoshop to take away (at least reduce) annoying glare in a photo. I took pictures through the windows at the top of the Washington Monument, and they have a white tint on them because of the glass.

That's certainly one of the more difficult things to do. It's comparatively easy to remove reflections from skin, but if you had forgotten to take your polarizing filter with you and can't clone an unaffected area, then I'm afraid it's not possible.
Actually, Photohop can't "remove" anything. The effect of removing something is created by painting over unwanted spots.
If you can't clone, maybe masking the affected areas, correcting levels and enhacing contrast can do a little, but don't expect too much.
