FROM THIS EPISODE

One Republican campaign says of another, "It's not the crime, it's the cover-up." On the Democratic side, one consultant says a primary rival "has taken more positions than the Kama Sutra." California's next campaign for governor is under way. Also, a PBS documentary tonight reveals how four generations of the Chandler family used the LA Times to help shape Los Angeles. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Justice Sonia Sotomayor began her first full term on the US Supreme Court today. Will the conservative majority come out swinging this year or sit back to avoid confrontations with Congress?
