SOTU Sneak Peek: a very Washington week

Obamacare has been the talk of Washington as House Republicans attack the law’s implementation and Obama plays defense, and the “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial has inflamed civil rights activists and brought controversial “stand your ground” laws into the national spotlight.  John McCain will be joining Candy Crowley on Sunday to talk immigration reform, Syria, Snowden, and sexual assault in the military.  With developments toward civility in the Senate, a newsmaking interview with Joe Biden, and a potential move for trapped NSA leaker Edward Snowden, there will be no shortage of news to discuss on this Sunday’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley.

However, when we’re inside the office, we’re wearing a sweater, fleece or blanket because it’s a chilly 60 degrees. ***Please note: no one is complaining about the office temperature. FULL POST

SOTU Crib Sheet for July 14

The verdict in the George Zimmerman trial ignited a national debate on race and civil rights. Today on “State of the Union,” NAACP President Ben Jealous told us “it feels so off that our young people have to fear the bad guys and the good guys.” Governors Rick Perry (R-TX) and Pat Quinn (D-IL) weighed in on the verdict, and their ongoing battles with state lawmakers. Perry defended the controversial abortion bill that passed the Texas legislature last week saying it isn’t anti-women. Congressmen Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) and Chaka Fattah (D-PA) told us about their conversations with president Obama this week.
