After a week off, Meet the Press is back and so are we…

Meet the Press: June 13, 2010


David Axelrod
Senior White House Advisor

A multi-front agenda for President Obama: As he prepares to make his fourth visit to the region impacted by the oil spill and meet for the first time with top BP officials, questions remain as to whether the administration did enough to get the situation under control and why they weren’t doing more to prevent such a catastrophe in the first place. Plus, Tuesday’s big election night — how did it reflect on the White House and the President’s popularity? What do the results mean for Democrats’ chances in the fall midterms? And, as the economic recovery remains sluggish, what does it mean for Obama’s presidency going forward? Also, new U.N. sanctions against Iran — what impact will they really have on that nation’s nuclear program? We’ll get answers on it all from President Obama’s Senior Adviser, David Axelrod.


Carly Fiorina

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Doris Kearns Goodwin

How has President Obama handled the devastating oil spill in the Gulf? What’s the political outlook for Washington and the nation following Tuesday’s Midterm elections? What does the strong showing by women candidates indicate? And does the future of the Republican Party lie in the tea party or with the GOP base? All questions for our roundtable this Sunday: Two important political voices — California’s new Republican nominee for U.S. Senate, Carly Fiorina, & Democratic Congresswoman from Florida and Vice Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz; plus three key journalists — Presidential Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, Politico’s Roger Simon, and NBC News’ Chuck Todd.
