Ballot Talks: What’s in store for Obama?


Guests: James Oliphant, Ron Elving

In this edition of Ballot Talks: We have a discussion about President Obama, and what his remaining years have in store. The commander-in-chief will be up against a majority Republican Congress for the remainder of his term, and we’ll discuss what initiatives he plans to fight for. Marty and her guests will look at Obama’s recent announcement of his potential nomination of Ashton Carter for Secretary of Defense, his executive order on immigration, and his actions in the wake of the grand jury decision in Ferguson. We’re joined by RON ELVING, senior Washington editor for NPR and by JAMES OLIPHANT, White House correspondent for the National Journal.
