Two good political videos from the Beltway to watch today

If you're looking for a couple of good political videos from the Beltway to watch today (who isn't??), check these out.

First, a piece from the White House that documents President Obama's daily letter-reading routine. The President reads 10 letters sent to him by Americans every day - this video, shot by the White House's video lead Jason Djang and his team, is a nice inside look at how those 10 letters get selected. It continues the White House's growing trend of producing behind-the-scenes feature stories about life at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Second, there's this new spot from the office of House Republican Minority Leader John Boehner, on the President's health care plan. It uses the old phrase, "I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV" (did you know that actually was a commercial?) to paint the President as a paternalistic leader who's trying to put undue government control onto the nation's health care system.
