The Mythology of the Middle Class

Hosted by

Both Democrats and Republicans are campaigning with traditional appeals to "the Middle Class." Is that a phrase that's losing its meaning?

Also, teachers go on strike in Chicago, leaving 350,000 students without school, and President Obama's public opinion "bounce" since the Democratic convention.
