Holder Jr.’s call for a new law allowing interrogators to question terrorism suspects for lengthy periods without informing them of their rights. In an interview on CNN, Mr. Axelrod said Mr. Obama was "open to looking at" changing the Miranda rule, which generally bans prosecutors from using as evidence statements made by suspects in custody before they have been warned that they have a right to remain silent and to consult a lawyer. "There may be some things that have to be done," Mr. Axelrod said.

Impatient Lib Dems begin talks with Labour 11 May 2010 Nick Clegg's Lib Dems began formal discussions with Labour last night on a possible power-sharing deal that could allow Gordon Brown's party to stay in office for up to five more years.

The move, which immediately prompted Mr Brown's decision to announce he would step down at the next Labour conference, threw wide open the make-up of the next UK government.

Obama administration blocked efforts to stop BP oil drilling before explosion

Obama administration blocked efforts to stop BP oil drilling before explosion By Joe Kishore 10 May 2010 In 2009, the Obama administration intervened to support the reversal of a court order that would have halted offshore oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Obama’s Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who has long had close ties to the industry, specifically cited BP’s Deepwater Horizon operation as one that should be allowed to go forward, according to a group involved in the court case. A Washington DC Appeals Court ruled in April 2009 that the Bush administration’s five-year plan for offshore oil and gas drilling (covering 2007 to 2012) was not based on a proper review of the environmental impact of the drilling. Only days before the ruling, the Obama administration had granted BP a "categorical exclusion," exempting it from an environmental impact study for the Deepwater Horizon project.

Send a message to senators now and urge them to say "Yes!" to comprehensive legislation to address climate change and "No!" to more dangerous offshore drilling.

Kagan May Mean a More Conservative Court

Kagan May Mean a More Conservative Court By Stuart Taylor Jr. 10 May 2010 One irony of President Obama's nomination today of Solicitor General Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court is that the effect of a Democratic president filling the seat of Republican-appointed Justice John Paul Stevens will likely be to make the Court more conservative... Kagan's record suggests that she probably falls to the right of Stevens -- arguably the most liberal current justice -- at least on the presidential-power and war-on-terror issues that may be more important than any others that come before the justices in our times.

Obama chooses Kagan for high court, stresses her 'restraint'

Obama chooses Kagan for high court, stresses her 'restraint' 10 May 2010 Calling her a "trailblazing lady," President Obama announced his nomination of Solicitor General Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court in a ceremony Monday morning in the White House. ...Kagan once hosted a celebratory dinner for conservative Justice Antonin Scalia when he marked his 20th anniversary on the high court, and another time she drew a standing ovation from members of the Federalist Society during a national convention on campus. In part because of that track record, some liberal activists had come to consider Kagan one of the more conservative people on Obama's working list of potential nominees.

Europe approves massive bailout package

Europe approves massive bailout package 10 May 2010 European Union finance ministers have agreed on a rescue deal worth more than 500 billion euros ($717 billion) to stop the financial crisis in Greece from spreading to other fragile EU economies. In an emergency meeting, EU finance ministers pledged to do "whatever it takes" to underpin the sinking euro currency and to prevent a second phase of the global financial crisis.

Obama Picks Kagan, Backer of Indefinite Detention Without Trial, for High Court

President Barack Obama to pick U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan as U.S. Supreme Court nominee (CLG compilation) 09 May 2010 You know you're in trouble when Faux News is calling her 'a brilliant woman.'
During her hearings to be confirmed as Solicitor General, the New York Times paraphrases Kagan as saying "that someone suspected of helping finance Al Qaeda should be subject to battlefield law -- indefinite detention without a trial -- even if he were captured in a place like the Philippines rather than a physical battle zone." --Charlie Savage, Obama's War on Terror May Resemble Bush's in Some Areas, The New York Times, 17 Feb 2009.

Chicken quip grounds high-flying Senate candidate

Chicken quip grounds high-flying Senate candidate 07 May 2010 Right wing, left wing, chicken wing.

The line from the millionaire casino executive and former beauty queen immediately became a late-night joke and YouTube sensation, and upended a GOP race that had been hers to lose.
