It's Busy Inside the Beltway: Politics Are Sizzling in DC

Hosted by

Talk about the mid-term elections is stirring up some heat this summer. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is on the warpath – over the campaign trail. She wants the White House to step up support for Democratic congressmen, instead of suggesting that Republicans could win in November. Republicans have made a few big gaffes lately, but politicos say they’re likely to take back the House this fall. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, guest host Sara Terry explores the White House strategy for mid-term elections. Would it be a good thing for Obama if Republicans win? What role will Sarah Palin play? Also, California Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald George announces he'll retire, and Argentina breaks new ground. Lawmakers legalized same-sex marriage early today, and the Catholic Church isn’t happy about it.
