Here are the big stories on the agenda today:
- President Obama is marking 200 days on the job. He'll start the morning with new unemployment numbers – a thorn in the president's side since day one. There are fears we could hit 10% unemployment this morning. We're live at the White House with what the administration expects, and how it could spin it.
- If you're still hoping to trade in that gas guzzling clunker for some cold, hard government cash, you're in luck. The senate is re-fueling the rebate program that has cars flying off dealer lots. Our CNN Money Team is standing by to break it all down.
- They're home and for the first time we're learning a little about what really happened to Laura Ling and Euna Lee inside North Korea. In her first interview since the homecoming, Lisa Ling told CNN that her sister did cross into North Korea after all… for “maybe thirty seconds.” Lisa Ling will be talking to us live at 7:30 et.
- The longest yard… sale. There are 654 miles of bargains in Dunlap, Tennessee. It's billed as the world's longest yard sale. And there are lots of bargain hunters this year, in the midst of recession. Our Rob Marciano is one of them this morning.
