(CNN) –- Making the House a home, the House of Representatives that is. In the latest installment of CNN=Politics Daily, CNN’s Jim Acosta has the story of a congressman who is trying to set an example in a bad economy by sleeping on the job – literally.

Also: She’s back, and she’s not happy. Sarah Palin is again taking aim at a familiar target: the media. But the Alaska governor has tough words for some members of the McCain campaign.  CNN’s Jason Carroll takes a look at her frank new interview.

Plus: Cash - or crash. President-elect Obama painted a bleak picture this week of where the economy will be headed if his stimulus plan is not passed quickly.  But, Obama is facing resistance on Capitol Hill as some legislators question how much money to spend - and to whom the money would go. CNN National Political Correspondent Jessica Yellin has the details.

Finally: Hours before he takes the oath of office, Obama will ride the rails from Philadelphia to Washington - a ride littered with security risks. CNN Homeland Security Correspondent Jeanne Meserve reports on the daunting task of keeping the president-elect safe.
