_______________________

Michael Shear: We had a good, lively briefing with Robert Gibbs again today. Among the topics we covered:* A lot of questions about BP and the oil spill, and especially about the government's oversight.* Discussion about the election results from Tuesday* Some discussion about the financial regulation legislation that is poised to pass in the Senate.* An interesting exchange about Robert's tendency to say "i'll get back to you on that."

_______________________

Sestak: There was a pretty contentious exchange about Joe Sestak. Do you think the administration offered him a job to get him out of the race in PA, and do you think this issue will stick around despite (or because of) Gibbs reluctance to talk about it?

_______________________

Oil spill: Will President Obama be taking a trip to the Gulf any time soon to see what's going on? It's been a month now and it's still leaking and spreading.

_______________________

Immigration: What did Gibbs say about the president's support of a boycott of Arizona over the immigration law?

iPad: So was Peter Baker suitably impressed with your iPad?

Salahis: Did they really try to crash the dinner again last night?
