McCaskill is spending the holiday in D.C. looking for a place to live, a new staff, and is appearing on national TV shows.

Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of a dozen states and environmental groups in the "global warming" lawsuit. The landmark case could institute regulations to lessen air pollution and power consumption. It has taken six years for the suit to reach the U.S. supreme court.
