Today we learned that the RNC is mocking Obama's efforts at credit card reform; Nancy Pelosi hit back at the CIA and her critics; Rahm Emanuel's Secret Service codename is Black Hawk; the Senate voted against two credit card reform measures; the CIA rejected Vice President Dick Cheney's request to release memos allegedly showing the fruits of harsh interrogation; the House Energy and Commerce Committee has drafted an outline of health reform legislation; and Obama's new drug czar wants to abolish the "war on drugs."
We also ruminated on Obama's chances to solidify an advantage with the Millenial Generation; the benefits of investigating Congress's ability to oversee the CIA; why a torture probe is now more likely; and the power of the word "marriage."
Tomorrow: the Philadelphia Phillies visit the White House; Energy Secretary Steven Chu delivers remarks at at meeting of the National Coal Council; Secretary of State Hillary Clinton holds a briefing for foreign media at the Washington Foreign Press Center.
