WASHINGTON(CNN)–In the latest installment of CNN=Politics Daily: President Obama talked strategy with his national security team Wednesday. CNN's White House Correspondent Dan Lothian reports on who is advising the president.

Meanwhile First Lady Michelle Obama is in Copenhagen to lend her support for Chicago's 2016 Olympic bid. CNN's Mary Snowe takes a look at the odds that the first lady's hometown will land the games.

Plus: Revelations last week about a Iranian nuclear facility have prompted calls for action against Iran's regime on the eve of talks with the country. CNN's State Department Correspondent Jill Dougherty is in the Situation Room to analyze the high stakes negotiations.

Finally: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was "president" for a day as she chaired a United Nations Security Council session regarding violence against women. "It is time for all of us to resume our responsibility," the long time women's rights advocate told her male counterparts. CNN's Senior United Nations Correspondent Richard Roth has the story.

    How different life would be had Hillary been elected. I like Obama, but I am really sick of the accusations, threats, and idiots on the right who want him dead. I don't think there would have been the uproar over President Clinton.

  11. RNC = DNC = politics as usual

    Someday it will be OK for a woman to be president. Ms.Clinton, you have advanced the cause of women everywhere. Sorry you live in a time of continuing sexism.

    America would be well-served to have Hillary as president for eight years. Yes, I'm still smarting from her loss to Obama. But you must admit, she has handled it all with great class, with nary a hint of resentment toward those she believed to be friends – Teddy Kennedy, Governor Richardson, the African-American community (which she as a tireless advocate), the liberal media, John Kerry, etc. etc.
