FROM THIS EPISODE

Tom Campbell supports abortion rights and same-sex marriage, but he’s holding a slight lead in the Republican campaign to replace US Senator Barbara Boxer. We ask Campbell how he plans to hold out against multi-millionaire Carly Fiorina and arch-conservative Assemblyman Chuck DeVore. Also, in proposing to open vast swaths of the ocean to exploration for oil and gas, President Obama made a familiar appeal. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, with little time left until the mid-term elections, we hear about the green economy, national security and the goal of "energy independence."

Main Topic Obama Drills for Consensus on Energy Consensus 27 MIN, 56 SEC

The President says his offshore oil-and-gas proposal will "break out of the broken policies of the past." But he's set off a familiar debate over energy needs and environmental protection. Will it lead to another stalemate or a breakthrough on global warming — in an election year?
