The one man filibuster in the U.S. Senate is over. A vote took place moments ago to extend jobless benefits to millions of Americans over the next month and to fund road projects. We've got the raw politics. Plus, Pres. Obama's compromises with the GOP over health care reform. See what's he's willing to add to the legislation.

    The fact of the matter is that Tilikum has aggressive tendencies and hes selfish with his toys and he considered Dawn,a toy as soon as he pulled her in. The thing that CNN is failing to talk about is the similar death that occurred in the Canary Island at Loro Parque theme park 2 months ago, and the killer whale, Keto is Tilikum's son.. This could be an opportunity to further learn more about orca behavior but instead SeaWorld wants to sweep this "altercation" as well as Dawn Brancheau under the rug and go go back to business as usual

    I don't think AC would hammer him either; but he has really been hammered the last few days by others.

    Jack Hanna – corporate shill. Yeah, Jack, killer whales certainly belong in a big cement pools and not in their native habitat of the open ocean. Maybe we should put you in a cage and see how well you do with your freedom restricted and forced to do unnatural behaviors. Oh, I'm sure you're good at that already......
