This Week's Podcast: Health Care, Afghanistan, & Lou Dobbs!

Sad But True Department: The Facebook fan page for our "It's All Politics" podcast is up to 226 members. The comments are so appreciated! All of which, once again, proves that more federal money is needed to help our nation's education system.

Anyhoo, the latest episode of the podcast is up, featuring everything you need to know about last week's close House vote on health care and the meaning of the anti-abortion Stupak amendment, as well as the prospects for health care passage in the Senate. And while we're waiting for the administration to announce a policy on Afghanistan, there remains the possibility that we haven't heard the last of the vote in that upstate New York congressional election.

And, to go along with my own fake quiz, a discussion about what's next for Lou Dobbs.
