This week in The Takeaway's Monday agenda with Marcus Mabry and Jonathan Marcus: Sonia Sotomayor, debates on health care, controversy over bank earnings, and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's international travel.
To find out more about Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, The Takeaway talks to two of her long time acquaintances: Margarita Rosa of Grand Street Settlement and Ellen Chapnick, Dean of Columbia Law School's Social Justice Program.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the white firefighters who said they experienced discrimination. Joining The Takeaway to talk about the philosophy behind this ruling is Georgetown law professor Jeffrey Rosen.
The Supreme Court confirmation of Sonia Sotomayor may not center on the abortion issue but rather affirmative action. The Takeaway is joined by Christopher Caldwell, a TIME magazine contributor and Senior Editor of The Weekly Standard.
