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.

We also considered whether Mark Sanford's admission will change politics; the new nomadism of economic displacement; how to read an Iranian news story; where Clarence Thomas would be if not for the Anita Hill scandal; Mitt Romney's image rehab; and whether fans will cheer or boo President Obama at the MLB All-Star Game.

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.
