The Day In Politics, 6/25

Today, Jenny Sanford put out a long, thoughtful statement on her husband; the U.S. Open sparked a climate change debate; and Dennis Ross was given a defined role.

Tomorrow: Obama meets with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the White House; and the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee holds a hearing on health care reform.
