>> President Obama is in Cannes, France, for the G20 economy summit where he stressed the importance of resolving the European financial crisis. Greece has become the most important agenda item, and Greek Prime Minister Papandreou may not survive a confidence vote tomorrow. They should probably just print more euros, right? (CNN)

>> Dozens of Occupy Oakland protesters were arrested amid tear gas, smoke grenades and rubber bullets at yesterday's 7,000-person demonstration. The protest became a riot with dumpsters set on fire and broken windows. Earlier in the day, a silver Mercedes Benz ran into the crowd, sending two protesters to the hospital, but police let the driver go. Can police do that? (LA Times, SF Chronicle)

>> Reports of Herman Cain's inappropriate behavior have doubles in two days, now including a complaint he sexually harassed a woman in Virginia and Iowa radio staffers. This never happens to other politicians! It simply must be a liberal conspiracy against a black man! (Politico, LA Times)

>> The Mexican Navy confiscated two tons of marijuana in 178 packages floating in the ocean 24 miles east of Cabo, no doubt a product of the country's ongoing drug war. So, uh, whatcha gonna do with all that weed, new Navy friends? (MSNBC)

>> And finally: Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (and apple of Muammar Qaddafi's eye) was on David Letterman last night where she said, "We had not been attacked on our territory since the War of 1812." But what about Pearl Harbor? She took to Twitter saying that Pearl Harbor was a "military base in Hawaii (not yet a state at the time)." Just a case of the Palins, I suppose. (
