Join Special Guest Jamie McLeod, a good friend of Tucson Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, to hear about Gabby and to sign your personal wishes to a Get Well Card.

Then hear our program, What's the Matter With Obama?

Equal pay for women, a stimulus package that stopped the economic slide into Depression, health care reform, credit card reform, gay rights, Sonja Sotomayor, and (yes) middle class tax cuts. Was it enough? What’s the Mat...ter with President Obama? Or has he succeeded as much as anyone could under trying circumstances and a hole dug for 8 years by the Bush / Cheney Administration? Our panelists bring insider knowledge and extensive expertise to this timely question.

Raven Brooks - Executive Director, Netroots Nation, the premier convention for American progressive political activists

Donnie Fowler - Senior Advisor, Obama Campaign. Chief of Field Gore Campaign. Clinton White House liaison to Congress for presidential appointments and appointee at the Federal Communications Commission. Currently he is CEO, Dogpatch Strategies.

Bruce Abramson - Blogger, The Informationist. Bruce brings a moderate, San Francisco Republican’s view to our panel. He has been politically active for more than thirty-five years, and has worked to support both Democratic and Republican candidates.

Michelle Kraus - Political strategist and columnist, Huffington Post.
