Week Ahead: Obama Tries Getting Back On Message And More

Even though it's summer, the news isn't taking a vacation. In the coming week, here is some of what we expect to be blogging about.

President Barack Obama will try to get back on message on the need to overhaul health care after he distracted the media and public by wading into the controversy following the arrest of Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr.

On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court.

Then there's the official start of the federal government's "cash for clunkers" program.

Of course, when it comes to the news, there's always the unexpected and we'll be blogging on that too.

Sunday starts a new week and a new look for, which includes The Two-Way.

The new is meant to be faster, more visually appealing and easier to navigate than the previous version. It's all about improving the way we get your news and information to you as well as your overall experience on NPR sites.

We hope you like the new look as much as we do.
