Romney Softens Tone on Immigration
Roll Call: “Mitt Romney’s carefully calibrated speech today to Latino elected officials included a softer tone than he used during the primaries … Romney again refused to say whether he would rescind President Barack Obama’s executive action last week to remove the threat of deportation for up to 800,000 illegal immigrants. Instead, Romney said he would put in place a long-term immigration reform plan, but exactly how that plan would deal with illegal immigrants remained far from clear.”
AP: “Mary Cheney, daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, has married her longtime partner, Heather Poe. In a statement, Cheney and his wife, Lynne, said the couple got married in Washington on Friday. … The District of Columbia and six states — Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont — have legalized gay marriage.”
BBC: “George Washington’s personal copy of the US constitution has sold for almost $10m, Christie’s auction house says. The book, with the first president’s own annotations, was printed in 1789 — his first year in office.”
