At the top of our agenda this week: 16 months out, Pres. Barack Obama is far ahead of GOP presidential hopefuls. Will it last to November 2012?
The Black Caucus talks jobs with the President, and Sarah Palin keeps targeting the President by making issues out of non-issues. This time, it’s conscious rapper Common visiting the White House.
Our “Washington Watch” newsmaker, Bishop T.D. Jakes, who goes Hollywood as a producer of the hit comedy “Jumping the Broom.” He talks faith, politics and marriage. Plus, in a special roundtable, a husband-and-wife blogging team and documentary director weigh in on the portrayal of Black marriages on the big and small screen.
No “Washington Watch” would be complete without our journalists’ roundtable, with Cynthia Tucker, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for the “Atlanta Journal Constitution”; Sophia Nelson, contributor to TheGrio.com and MSNB contributor; Robert Traynham, host of “Roll Call TV” on the Comcast Network; and syndicated columnist George Curry.
Also, we talk with Chris Martin, of the duo Kid ‘n’ Play, about hip-hop and Florida A&M University.
All that and more in this week’s edition of “Washington Watch.”
