(CNN) – CNN Anchor Rick Sanchez went head-to-head with conservative writer Ann Coulter Friday on a host of issues.
Coulter will speak before the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering of conservatives in the nation’s capital, later Saturday.
(CNN) – Fourteen-year-old conservative author and pundit Jonathan Krohn fired up the crowd at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday morning.
The young conservative, who wowed the same conference last year, even got a jab in at President Obama:
"For the record, I am not using any teleprompters today because I loaned them to President Obama," he said to laughter.
(CNN) – During his weekly radio and Internet address Saturday, President Obama urged both Democratic and Republican leaders to make good-faith efforts at compromise during his upcoming meeting on health care.
"The question…is whether we will do what it takes, all of us – Democrats and Republicans – to build a better future for ourselves, our children, and our country," Obama said in the address. "That's why, next week, I am inviting members of both parties to take part in a bipartisan health care meeting, and I hope they come in a spirit of good faith. I don't want to see this meeting turn into political theater, with each side simply reciting talking points and trying to score political points."

(CNN) – In the weekly Republican radio and Internet address, Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan suggests the upcoming bipartisan meeting on health care with President Obama may not yield the results many Americans are looking for.
"Americans are demanding that President Obama and the Democrats in control of Congress scrap their misguided plan of a government takeover of health care….They want Washington to start over with a step-by-step approach to health care reform that begins with reducing costs and ensures they can keep their current plan if they like it," Camp says. “For those families and small businesses looking for a sign that Washington is ready to wake up and find common sense on this issue, next week’s White House health care summit may not be it."
