The Day In Politics, 6/9

More

Today, we learned that a Guantanamo detainee was transferred to New York for trial;Sen. Bernie Sanders said some Democrats will never support single-payer health care; and we welcomed Matt Cooper to the politics channel.

We also contemplated why the White House hates process stories; its different-issue-every-day strategy; Virginia primary polls, and why one would follow them; the return of the deficit hawks; Obama's call for PayGo; and the effect of Gingrich's keynote fundraiser speech.

Tomorrow: Education Secretary Arne Duncan speaks at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast; the Senate Homeland Security Committee holds a hearing on allegations of waste, fraud, and abuse at the U.S. embassy in Kabul;the House Science and Technology Committee holds a hearing on Cybersecurity R&D.
