Good morning...Hillary Clinton, gun control, immigration and North Korea are in the headlines this morning. Here's a roundup of what happened while you were sleeping, for Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, brought to you by West Wing Reports and NewsRoomAmerica

AP:  Leading senators reach agreement on sweeping legislation to rewrite the nation's immigration laws, which will be announced at a news conference this afternoon. It covers border security, guest workers and employer verification, as well as a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

Washington Post: Don't look now, but bipartianship appears to be erupting on Capitol Hill on immigration - cooperation that seemed unimaginable just a few months ago on one of the country's most divisive issues.

Reuters: President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will meet today with police chiefs from three U.S. communities scarred by mass shootings - part of the administration's push to reduce gun violence. 

Fox News: When it comes to gun control, President Obama suggests that House Republicans appear neither willing to work with him nor inclined to listen to what the majority of the American public wants. 

New York Times:  House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is rebranding himself after Republican election losses; look for a softer image on a variety of issues from the Virginia firebrand in the coming months. 

Everyone's talking about...that joint interview on "60 Minutes" between President Clinton and his departing Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Her last day on the job will be Friday, and after some downtime, what's next? The Democratic nomination in 2016, if she wants it, some say. Here's an interesting take from David Rothkopf of the FP Group, publishers of Foreign Policy magazine.

Overseas: More sabre rattling from North Korea; French troops advanced on al- Qaeda terrorists in Mali.
