Obama's Columbus visit

Columbus, OH – Just a month ago, President Obama used Columbus police recruits as a way to illustrate to reporters how some of the money from the $787 billion economic stimulus package would be used.

That happened, so today, the president himself attended the graduation ceremony. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.
