Two-hundred-sixteen votes needed in the House. Sunday billed as the moment of truth. Republicans warning of Armageddon. It’s a major-league moment in the capital.

We’ve got flooding in Fargo. Mexican drug violence hitting an American consulate. Federal moves on Wall Street, jobs, and No Child Left Behind. U.S.-Israel fireworks. And Tiger Woods headed out of the dog house and back to the links.

This hour, On Point: our weekly news roundtable goes behind the headlines. Guests:

Eleanor Clift, contributing editor and columnist for Newsweek and a regular panelist on The McLaughlin Group. Her latest book is "Two Weeks of Life: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Politics."

Noam Levey, health policy reporter for the Los Angeles Times.

Jack Beatty, On Point news analyst and senior editor at The Atlantic.

This program aired on March 19, 2010.
