Today we learned the details of the administration's CAFE announcement; two University of Chicago law profs think President Obama's SCOTUS pick will be center-left, not traditionally liberal; the CIA has hundreds of pages of records describing its destroyed interrogation tapes; faith groups have launched a health reform campaign, including radio ads; and Donald Rumsfeld says he had nothing to do with biblical references in classified briefings.
We mediated on Michael Steele's footing as leader of the RNC; whether economic conservatism can win over young voters; how Obama will proceed on Don't Ask, Don't Tell; how the administration will handle cybersecurity (likely with a new czar); and who that czar will be. We also unpacked the classification terminology of Donald Rumsfeld's briefings.
Tomorrow: President Obama meets with the presidential Economic Recovery Advisory Board; Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner testifies before the Senate Banking Committee on TARP oversight; and Attorney General Eric Holder and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announce a new effort to fight Medicare fraud.
