Starting Lineup: Turning Down Talent

DADT Report: Speaking of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the Pentagon is set to release its highly anticipated report on the policy Tuesday at 2 p.m. The report is expected to say that repealing the policy would not have a detrimental effect on the military. It is not, however, expected to successfully sway Congress toward actually repealing it. The Senate Armed Services Committee is scheduled to hold hearings on the report on Thursday and Friday. Judge Rules Against Miller: Another day, another court ruling against Republican Joe Miller in the Alaska Senate race. Late Monday, a federal judge ruled to move the lawsuit over contested ballots to Juneau from Fairbanks -- where Miller wanted it. Judge Douglas Blankenship acknowledged that it may be necessary to review some ballots again, but did not offer a ruling on Miller's injunction. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Wednesday. Issa To The White House: Not to be missed in all the coverage of the White House summit: Incoming House Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) will meet with Vice Pres. Joe Biden Tuesday, according to the White House. The meeting is closed press, but here's betting it'll be testy. From the White House guidance: "At 3:00 PM, the Vice President will meet with Representative Darrell Issa to discuss oversight of the Recovery Act and opportunities to increase transparency in other federal programs." Updated at 10:27 a.m. to reflect when Talent was a registered lobbyist.
