How far (or not) the American political culture has come

By Michelle Koepp

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama honored the legislation that helped pave his path to the White House. Fifty years ago, the 1964 Civil Rights Act was signed into law. It made it illegal to discriminate on the basis of race, gender, or national origin.  The act outlawed for the first time the segregation of whites and minorities at lunch counters, on buses, and in other public places. It also notably gave women legal recourse for workplace gender discrimination, giving American women a metaphorical “hammer” which they could wield to shatter the glass ceiling.

This Sunday...

They’re determined to get members of their party elected to the House in the upcoming midterm elections. Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Rep. Steve Israel and Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee Congressman Greg Walden – discuss firing up voters when Congress is as popular as a skunk at a picnic, how race factors into opposition to the Obama administration and whether it would be easier to pass immigration reform if today’s immigrants had freckles, red hair and names like O’Toole.

Plus- a reporter round-up will detail how pings identified potentially from Flight 370’s black box are offering renewed hope that more information will emerge of just what happened to the Malaysian airliner with 239 passengers aboard.

Our political panel this week includes Cornell Belcher, Ron Brownstein and Liz Mair and they’ll dig into the resignation of HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

Watch Sunday at 9am and Noon ET.

SOTU Scoop

By Tracey Webb

Your daily scoop of what State of the Union is watching today, April 11, 2014.

1. So long Sebelius. President Obama announced the resignation of Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Sebelius, who has been under fire because of the botched rollout of Obamacare, is leaving office on a higher note as sign-ups for the federal health insurance exchanges have topped seven million. Obama praised Sebelius, saying under her leadership the rollout "turned the corner, got it fixed, got the job done, and the final score speaks for itself." Sebelius called her tenure as HHS Secretary "the most meaningful work I’ve ever been a part of. In fact, it has been the cause of my life." Obama is nominating Office of Managment and Budget director Sylvia Matthews Burwell as Sebelius' replacement. Does Sebelius' departure give the White House a chance to rebrand Obamacare? We'll get our political panel's take Sunday on State of the Union.
