Listen To The Show: Part 1 - Part 2

On this Independence Day of 2005 we look at the State of the union; Nomi Prins joins us on the state of the economy and how the political economy of the Bush administration affects the global economy and the person on the street in anytown USA – and John Nichols connects the dots on the state of the union reflecting on the nation’s history and what we have abandoned. John also reflects on the role of the courts now that Bush selects his first nominee for the Supreme Court in the wake of Sandra Day O’Connor’s retirement.
