The Day In Politics, 5/28

More

Today we learned that President Obama will travel to Landstuhl Regional Medical Facility in Gernamy next week, thereby visiting the center of an '08 controversy; Mitt Romney participated in a roundtable discussion in Arlington, VA; the public likes Sonia Sotomayor; Obama urged grassroots support for healthcare reform via phone from Air Force One; Arnold Schwarzenegger joked about Rush Limbaugh's weight; the NRCC cut a Pelosi/CIA ad; and a federal judge has given the government some classification guidance in the case of Waleed Said Bn Said Zaid.

We also considered Obama's order to review document classification policies; Democrats' new industry alliances; and whether the CIA and DNI are really at odds.

Tomorrow: Education Secretary Arne Duncan delivers a speech at the National Press Club; the White House releases its cybersecurity review; and, as noted by Marc, the administration is expected to maintain its state-secrets claim in the Al-Haramain case.
