Economic Stimulus and the Promise of Bipartisanship

Hosted by

Barack Obama said he'd restore the economy in a bipartisan way, but debate over his stimulus package sounds all too familiar. We hear about his visit to Capitol Hill today and the prospects for consensus. Also, President Obama and Middle East envoy George Mitchell reach out to Arabs and Muslims. Congress, in the meantime, is in the process of sending its first bill to the Obama White House. We hear about Lilly Ledbetter and gender-discrimination wages.
