Today on The Signorile Show

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca) has now suggested that the House plans on passing health care legislation without having members vote on it. "Self-executing rule" or a "deem and pass" process is the method in which she plans on moving forward. The GOP is furious with this decision, "deeming" it as unconstitutional. We'll discuss it this afternoon.

Barney Frank criticizes White House, backtracks...reverses?....on the Don't Ask, Don't Tell repeal push.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - In her new book, The Guilt Project: Rape, Morality, and Law, Vanessa Place explores larger ethical questions and looks at how the justice system defines, prosecutes and punishes sex offenders. She joins us this afternoon to talk about it.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Last week, we told you about Constance McMillen, the lesbian high school student from Mississippi, whose school officials canceled her prom to prevent her from bringing her girlfriend as her date. She joins us today to talk about her story. You can also follow her fight on Facebook here.

And just when you thought it was all over, the John Edwards scandal continues, now with Rielle Hunter, his mistress and mother to their 2-year-old daughter Quinn, speaking with GQ magazine, saying "We love each other very much. And that hasn't changed, and I believe that will be till death do us part."

We'll also read some listener survey comments today.
