Hour 1

Congress is in recess, but politics haven’t paused. On this week’s national political roundup, Marty chats with SAM STEIN, political reporter at the Huffington Post, and JULIAN E. ZELIZER, Professor of History and Public Affairs at Princeton University. We’ll talk about how health care legislation is playing out on the airwaves and in the districts of campaigning Congresspeople; financial regulation’s fortunes; President Obama’s support for offshore drilling; a mini-scandal at the Republican National Committee; Tea Party politics and heated rhetoric; and international interactions with Russia, Iran and Afghanistan.
