Also this week, another Justice Department official resigns in the wake of the U.S. attorneys controversy, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) visits the Middle East, the Supreme Court rules on the EPA's powers, presidential hopefuls detail their fundraising achievements and Ford's new chief takes home a big paycheck from the floundering automaker.

Correction April 9, 2007

The archived audio contains an error: Mitt Romney is the former governor of Massachusetts. His father, George Romney, was governor of Michigan.
