  • Transcript

Robert Siegel talks with E.J. Dionne, a columnist for The Washington Post and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution and David Brooks, columnist for The New York Times.

They discuss President Bush's speech, public response to Hurricane Katrina, and the nomination of John Roberts as chief justice. The president's approval rating has dropped over his handling of Katrina, even among Republicans.

Roberts may be one of the few beneficiaries of Katrina, however. Democrats seem to be backing off challenging his nomination, shifting their focus to the other open slot on the court.
