Bloggers on the Political Mainframe

This week began with more suicide bombings and the continued investigation of alleged atrocities by U.S. Marines in Iraq. But with the killing of insurgent leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the week is ending with a major shot of confidence for the U.S. military.

Is it a turning point in Iraq? That's among the questions we'll ask our panel of journalists about the news of the week.

Also up for discussion, what did the elections — from Montana to California — suggest about the Democrats' hopes to retake Congress in 2006 — or about Republican hopes to hang on? And was a failed effort to amend the constitution to ban gay marriage really what conservatives needed?

Hear about the latest in Iraq, electoral politics, and maybe even World Cup Soccer.

Guests:

Mike Krempasky, co-founder of the blog RedState.com, a Republican community blog

Chris Bowers, blogger for MyDD- Direct Democracy

Jack Beatty, On Point News Analyst.
