This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

CNN’s Paul Begala calls in at 8:30am to talk about President Obama’s signing of the stimulus bill today, and about all other things in the political world.

President Barack Obama is traveling to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science today to sign into law the most sweeping economic package in decades, a rescue plan meant to reinvigorate job creation, consumer spending, and public optimism. The setting is meant to underscore the investments the new law will make in “green” energy-related jobs.

Government officials are preparing to review “viability plans” due to be submitted today by the ailing American automakers. Since December, GM and Chrysler have received billions of dollars in loans from the federal government, and they both were required to submit the plans to receive billions more. Without government aid, both companies are at risk for bankruptcy.

President Obama will focus on home foreclosures this week as part of the effort to shore up the economy. Details of the new plan, due tomorrow, will come just days after Congress passed the stimulus bill aimed at creating jobs.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made her strongest comments yet about North Korea this morning during her tour of Asia. She warned that a possible North Korean missile launch “would be very unhelpful in moving our relationship forward.” She also said the U.S. is “watching very closely” actions by North Korea.
