The Day In Politics, 6/24

More

Today, we learned that Bill Richardson thought it was "fantastic" to have Manny Ramirez in New Mexico; Mark Sanford returned; held a press conference; said he'd been in Argentina and admitted to an affair; Sarah Palin ranked as America's most popular Republican; the Iranian government leveled allegations of terrorism and spying; and Nico Pitney explained his arranged conveyance of an Iranian question.

We also explored the advantages of private insurance; the debate over Nico Pitney's question; more questions for Sanford; whether his admission will change politics; and what Bill Clinton can teach him.

Tomorrow: President and Mrs. Obama preapare backpacks with books, healthy snacks, and frisbees for children of soldiers; President Obama hosts a meeting with lawmakers on immigration; and hosts a picnic for members of Congress and their families at the White House; the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee holds a hearing on stimulus progress 120 days in; the House Budget Committee holds a hearing on Pay-Go budget rules; the Senate Judiciary Committee holds a hearing on hate crimes legislation.
