The Day In Politics, 6/10

Today, we learned that the administration is creating a new Executive Compensation Special Master; that he'll oversee executive pay for seven financial and auto companies; J Street raised $22 K to defend a freshman congresswoman; the DNC wants you to sign Sonia Sotomayor's cast; and Gordon Brown passed over Mark Penn.

We also mulled which Republicans Obama listens to; why Creigh Deeds won in VA; whether Google ads had anything to do with it; whether Republicans need a Bill Clinton; whether Sarah Palin likes oil revenue; and the Holocaust Museum shooting and the gun control debate.

Tomorrow: President Obama holds a town hall in Green Bay, Wisconsin; Vice President Joe Biden attends a highway project groundbreaking in Kansas with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, and another in Pennsylvania with Gov. Ed Rendell (D) and Sen. Arlen Specter (D); the Senate Foreign Relations Commitee holds a hearing on North Korea; the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee holds a hearing on health care reform.
