President Obama on Oil in the Gulf; Gays in the Military

Hosted by

As scientists concluded today that the Gulf oil spill is the worst in the nation’s history, President Obama spoke to reporters who asked him again and again if federal response has been too little, too late. We have more on his news conference and a progress report on "Top Kill." Also, a White House compromise on repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is now on Capitol Hill. It would not end the ban on gays in the military, so what's the rush?
