The Day In Politics, 6/29

More

Today, we learned that President Obama and Hugo Chavez have one thing in common (Honduras); the Supreme Court disagreed with Sonia Sotomayor; which Sotomayor's critics pounced on; Obama hosted an LGBT Pride Month reception, despite skepticism about him among gays; and Obama met with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe and talked trade.

We also pondered why the SCOTUS decision won't bring back affirmative action as a hot-button issue; and the warm response Obama got from LGBT attendees at the reception.

Tomorrow: the Department of Health and Human Services and the CDC are expected to announce an end to a ban on emigration to the U.S. for those who are HIV positive; members of the House and Senate are home for Independence Day recess.
