Here are the big stories on the agenda today:
- President Obama softening his criticism of police who arrested a prominent black Harvard professor. It’s a war of words he chose to jump into with both feet and critics are saying he jumped the gun. What the president says now about the racially-charged incident and our exclusive interview with the Cambridge police commissioner.
- President Obama's health care timeline hits a major speed bump. The democratic leader of the senate now saying getting a reform bill passed by the August recess – can't be done. We're live at the White House with details.
- Old enough to strip, too young to drive. There's a huge push this morning to close a shocking legal loophole in Rhode Island. While teens can't pump gas or climb ladders on the job, there's nothing on the books keeping 16 and 17-year olds from stripping... as long as they're home by 11:30 on school nights. Authorities discovered this during a police investigation of a 16-year-old runaway working at a strip club in Providence. We’ll talk to the state representative behind the campaign to close that loophole.
