John Edwards jury still deliberating, Poland wants an apology, plus more to watch for Wednesday in politics

The John Edwards verdict watch goes into day eight on Wednesday. Judge Catherine Eagles appeared to give jurors a scolding on Tuesday, but the day still ended without a decision. Is Wednesday the day? Is the jury hung up beyond hope?

Mitt Romney, having mathematically clinched the GOP presidential nomination Tuesday when the Texas primary pushed him past the 1,144 delegate tally he needed, will spend Wednesday raising money in California.

President Barack Obama will sign the Export-Import Bank Reauthorization Act. The president says the bank is a vehicle for promoting U.S. export sales. He also will attend a hurricane preparedness briefing, and he'll host a reception marking Jewish American Heritage Month.

Attorney General Eric Holder will give the keynote address at the Congressional Black Caucus 2012 Faith Leaders Summit. Meanwhile, Speaker of the House John Boehner will be trying to decide whether to proceed to a contempt vote against Holder for failing to turn over demanded documents in the "fast and furious" investigation.

And then there is this: Poland wants an apology from the White House after President Obama spoke of a "Polish death camp" Tuesday while announcing an award to a Polish resistance fighter for alerting the world to the Nazi Holocaust. Poland's Prime Minister Donald Tusk is expected to have more to say about the matter on Wednesday, and the White House is likely to say something, too. Poland, which was occupied by the Nazis during World War II,  has long campaigned against suggestions it bore any responsibility for the holocaust.
