Left, Right and Center: Campaign Energy Wars; Are Dems Doomed? China's CloseUp

The fight over US energy policy has been the dominant message on the presidential campaign trail this week: who's got it right, who's pandering and who's been a demagogue? Tony's for any plan that doesn't involve tax subsidies, and prefers the multi-pronged approach. Bob and Arianna think Obama's trying to play it too safe; and everyone thinks that no one's facing the facts and telling the truth -- they're just playing politics. As Obama prepares to take a vacation, is he ceding the limelight to McCain? Why has McCain been successful in undermining Obama's message? A reminiscence about Reagan, who stuck to his guns -- and won. Should Obama do the same? Plus, a brief mention of that other world event: The China Olympics.
