The Day In Politics, 6/5

More

Today, Mitch Daniels got more attention as a potential 2012 candidate; Newt Gingrich expanded on his criticism of Sonia Sotomayor; unemployment rose to 9.4 percent, with construction workers and black men seeing the worst of it; and the Justice Department launched an investigation into the shooting of Dr. George Tiller; and President Obama spoke about Middle East peace at a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

We also considered the end of Mark Sanford's stimulus fight; Sarah Palin's economics and Alaska's federal dollars; and whether Mitch Daniels' idealism is what the GOP needs.

Tomorrow: Obama travels to Normandy to mark the 65th anniversary of D-Day; Organizing for America kicks off its health care reform campaign with events across the country.
