The Day In Politics, 7/14

Today, we learned that Sonia Sotomayor wouldn't mind cameras in the Supreme Court (we think); Atlantic Media Company Chairman David Bradley was named to the Department of Homeland Security's new advisory panel on terrorism alerts; Sotomayor said she's been misunderstood; Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tried to get Sotomayor to repeat her "wise Latina" quote; and Justice Stephen Breyer shared his thoughts on getting confirmed with The Atlantic.com Editorial Director Bob Cohn.

We also considered Steve Rattner's exit; how Supreme Court confirmation hearings are all the same; how a potential beef between The Game and Jay-Z relates to President Obama; Obama's first pitch at tonight's All-Star Game; and whether Eric Holder will prosecute CIA field officers, and what that would mean.

Tomorrow: Sonia Sotomayor appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee for the third day of her first confirmation hearing; Homeland Security Secretar Janet Napolitany testifies before the Senate Homeland Security Committee on ID security and "Reevaluating the REAL ID Act"; the House Financial Services Committee considers banking industry perspectives on the administration's financial regulatory reform plan, hearing testimony from financial industry association heads.
