    It’s time for our weekly political roundup again, and there’s plenty to talk about this week. Joining Marty to discuss the national political picture are Huffington Post political reporter SAM STEIN and Swarthmore College political scientist BEN BERGER. They’ll tackle everything from intelligence failures and the White House response; the Cheney father/daughter critique of the Obama administration; the changing political landscape in Congress, with retiring Senators and November implications; the external and internal stresses on both major political parties; as well as the health care legislative process and potential endgame. Then, we’ll chat with Philadelphia Daily News columnistJOHN BAER about Harrisburg happenings including table games, Bonusgate and the November elections. Listen to the mp3
