Morning Update: U.S. Automakers in Limbo

by campaign2008
November 11, 2008

President-elect Obama, meeting President Bush yesterday at the White House, urged Bush to extend an aid package (WashPost) to automakers by giving them access to some of the Treasury Department’s $700 billion economic rescue program. Bush indicated to Obama that he might be willing to consider throwing his support behind such a measure if congressional Democrats agree to support his proposed free trade deal with Colombia.

GUANTANAMO: Prominent human rights groups are pressuring Barack Obama to close the detention facility (WashPost) at Guantanamo Bay immediately upon taking office.
