This Week's Agenda: Hollande, Merkel, and Gay Marriage

Email a Friend

On the agenda this week: France's new president Francois Hollande travels to see German Chancellor Angela Merkel within hours of being sworn in. And both leaders travel to Camp David at the end of the week for a G8 meeting. Also, gas prices are down, and JPMorgan executives are leaving —will the campaigns continue to discuss gay marriage, or will the focus turn back to the economy?
