The nation's capital is still recovering from this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner, which was no less raucous than in previous years, leaving White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs to explain the White House's position on the finer points of comedy.
The administration is also taking to the airwaves on healthcare, today, with a major policy announcement by the President.
