WATCH: Jean Biden’s Funeral; House Returns; Palin on Fox; LaHood Takes on Distracted Driving; Awaiting the Supreme Court; Meeting the LaRouche Candidates

Funeral Services: President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will join Vice President Joe Biden and his family in Wilmington, Del., today to attend the funeral of Biden’s mother, Jean Biden, who died Friday at the age of 92.
The U.S. House reconvenes today for the second session of the 111th Congress.

Ready for Primetime: Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will make her debut as a Fox contributor tonight on “The O’Reilly Factor.” The former Alaska governor’s deal, first reported Monday, will add her to a list of political analysts and commentators on Fox News, Fox Business Network, and special programs including Fox’s “Real American Stories.” Fox is owned by News Corp., which also owns The Wall Street Journal.

Eyes on the Road: U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and National Safety Council President Janet Froetscher will announce a national nonprofit group, FocusDriven, aimed at raising awareness about the dangers of distracted driving. LaHood said that “just as groups like MADD changed attitudes about drunk driving, I believe FocusDriven can help raise awareness and change the way people think about distracted driving.” In 2008, nearly 6,000 people died in crashes involving a distracted or inattentive driver, and more than half a million were injured, according to the Transportation Department.

Money in Politics: The Supreme Court might rule today in the closely watched case of Citizens United vs. the Federal Election Commission, which could expand the role of corporations and labor unions in financing elections. If a ruling comes down, government watch-dog groups included Common Cause and Public Campaign will hold a press conference on the steps of the Supreme Court to offer immediate reaction.

Trip Highlights: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will lead a news conference today on Capitol Hill to discuss a recent congressional delegation to Afghanistan and Pakistan. Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Michael Crapo of Idaho, Roger Wicker of Mississippi, and GOP Rep. Mike Castle of Delaware will also participate.

Remember Him?: The LaRouche Political Action Committee holds a news conference today at the National Press Club to introduce three of their movement’s 2010 candidates and to discuss their support of Lyndon LaRouche’s call for impeachment proceedings against Obama. The candidates, running on the Democratic ticket, are Rachel Brown, in Massachusetts’s 4th District, Kesha Rogers, in Texas’s 22nd District, and Summer Justice Shields, in California’s 8th District.The U.S. House reconvenes today for the second session of the 111th Congress.
