Iran agrees to suspend their program of enriching uranium. However, they insist that it was only for energy use and expect the United States to provide them with $10 Billion in aid to help create a better energy policy.

Rush Limbaugh is voted Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person in the World" because of Limbaugh's statement that we are "bribing ourselves out of nuclear war". "So what are you saying?"

Meanwhile, Pelosi's first apporval rating is out, which shows her at exactly 50 percent. (NOTE: the show "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" on MSNBC is still very much the same ATL as in OTL.)
