In this week’s national news roundup, an Arizona court puts the state’s immigration law on hold and Senator Lindsey Graham says he may try to repeal the 14th amendment which grants birthright citizenship.  Also, Shirley Sherrod gets ready to sue Andrew Breitbart, the conservative blogger who falsely portrayed her as racist.  We’ll also cover the ethical troubles of Charlie Rangle, Obama’s struggles with popularity and his appearance on The View, and the Senate’s failure to pass the campaign ad disclosure bill.  Our guests are JOAN WALSH, editor-in-chief for Salon.com, and BEN BERGER, a political scientist at Swarthmore College.
