    In this week’s national news roundup, we’ll look at the passage of the financial reform bill and what it took to push it through.  Also, the fallout from the NAACP’s resolution against “racist elements” in the Tea Party movement.  We’ll also discuss Obama’s latest poll numbers and his PR problem, the Kagan vote, upcoming primaries, the BP oil spill aftermath, and the state of the political parties.  We’re joined by Jason Johnson, Hiram College political scientist, and Reid Wilson, editor in chief for The Hotline.
