Guests:

Jim VandeHei, Congressional Reporter for The Washington Post

Damon Chappie , Senior Staff Writer for Roll Call

John M. Barry, author of several books including Power Plays: Politics, Football and Other Blood Sports and Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America

This program aired on August 8, 2002.
