The Day In Politics, 5/13

More

Today we learned that the Department of Transportation will cancel a Bush-administration plan to auction off runway time at New York City airports; AIG CEO Edward Liddy says AIG needs more money...unless the economy gets really bad; former FBI interrogator Ali Soufan told the Senate Judiciary Committee that harsh interrogation techniques don't work as well as regular ones; Condoleezza Rice's former top aide said the same; liberals in Minnesota set up a billboard calling on Gov. Tim Pawlenty ro certify Al Franken as a senator; and Carlos Moreno might be on Obama's short list for the Supreme Court.

We deliberated on what questions will lead us to Obama's real Supreme Court list; why Obama reversed course on detainee photos; and the cost of backing Charlie Crist.

Tomorrow: President Obama holds a town hall meeting on the credit card crisis tomorrow morning in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner holds a press conference to make an update to the administration's housing program. Defense Secretary Robert Gates testifies on the defense budget before the Senate Armed Services Committee. The Senate Finance Committee holds its next hearing on health reform.
