CNN Radio News Day: January 15, 2013 by CNN published on 2013-01-15T21:57:44Z Welcome to CNN Radio News Day. * After years of denying it, cycling legend Lance Armstrong is now said to have finally admitted he took performance-enhancing drugs during his career. That's according to American talk show host Oprah Winfrey who sat down with Armstrong for an interview Monday. Winfrey told CBS News she and her staff were "mesmerized and riveted" by his answers. Bob Dorfman of Baker Street Advertising in San Francisco says despite the tarnished image, Armstrong still has some appeal: "You're looking at appearance fees that could be pretty large... I think a lot of people would pay money just to come watch him race whether he does well or not." * The House today took up a big leftover from the previous Congress - whether to approve billions more in relief for those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Connecticut Representative Rosa DeLauro, a Democrat, was one of many making an impassioned plea to their colleagues who voted against the first phase of Sandy aid earlier this month: "We are asking. We are pleading, and we shouldn't have to beg for money for the Northeast." * President Obama is the 44th president of the United States. And when he is officially sworn in for his second term in office Sunday he joins another exclusive club - second term presidents. Mr. Obama is only the 17th president to be re-elected to a second term. Akhil Reed Amar is a professor of Constitutional Law at Yale University. He says it’s not what a president does, but rather the party legacy he leaves behind that marks his success. "Abe Lincoln takes a fledgling political party that's never won a presidential election before and makes it the dominant presidential party for 60 years."
