Tomorrow (Wednesday) morning at 10 a.m., there will be a congressional hearing on domestic partner benefits for federal employees. You can watch it live or later on the web page of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. Witnesses will include representatives from the Office of Personnel Management, two government employee unions, and a large private corporation. Senator Obama is a member of this committee, but I have a sneaking suspicion that he won't make it to the hearing. Just a guess.
