Today's Details

-President Bush cast the first veto of his 5 1/2-year presidency Wednesday, saying legislation easing limits on federal funding for embryonic stem cell research "crosses a moral boundary" and is wrong. DETAILS

-Defending Bush's veto, Rove Grossly distorts stem cell science. (Distortion? How about LIE? There is no defending the indefensible - which is why they resort to lying. I think the bigger story would be of anyone being surprised by this latest round of lies. They've lied about EVERYTHING since they've come to power. They aren't about the truth. They're about advancing their agenda.) DETAILS

-Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah was believed to be in a bunker in southern Beirut at the time of a major Israeli airstrike on the facility, an Israeli news Web site reported, but Hezbollah denied any of its leaders had been killed. DETAILS

-A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a Maryland law that would have required Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to spend more on employee health care, arguing the retail giant “faces threatened injury” from the law’s spending requirement. DETAILS

-At a moment when his conservative coalition is already under strain over domestic policy, President Bush is facing a new and swiftly building backlash on the right over his handling of foreign affairs. DETAILS

-Rep. Katherine Harris acknowledged Tuesday that investigators probing a bribery scandal have sought records from her Senate campaign, but she denied suggestions by a former top adviser that she is a target of the investigation. DETAILS
