Today on our 3@3 panel, political strategist Delmarie Cobb and Chicago Tribune Reporter Monica Eng talk about the stories of the day with host Steve Edwards.

The topics include:

Steve Edwards: Politicizing war – one year after the death of Osama Bin Laden, President Obama is being criticized for using the takedown for political purposes.  On this anniversary, where are we with the ‘War on Terror’ and is it impossible for it to avoid politics in this election cycle?

Delmarie Cobb: Mayor Emanuel wants to add another runway at O'Hare. Why doesn't he support a South Suburban Airport and/or the Gary/Chicago Airport runway extension.

Monica Eng: The debate over a proposed soda tax is on! Is soda the new junk food?
