Kevin Drum is traveling today and tomorrow, so I’m covering for him over on his blog. Here’s the latest politics news:

Decision “Next Week” On Health Care Strategy

The Democrats will soon have a strategy to pass health care reform, Harry Reid said Tuesday night. We’ve heard that before.

Chris Dodd vs. the Volcker Rule

The chair of the Senate banking committee thinks Obama’s financial regulatory reforms, which were dreamed up by former Fed Chair Paul Volcker, may be excessively ambitious. What exactly does that mean?

More Health Care Questions

Now that Scott Brown’s in town, there’s really only one workable path to pass health care reform. So why are the Democrats saying they’re still trying to figure out a strategy? Answer: there’s something else going on.

I’ll have more later in the day at Kevin’s place.
