At the top of our agenda this week, the homerun speech trifecta: First Lady Michelle Obama, former President Bill Clinton and President Barack Obama. The employment situation was mixed with only 96,000 jobs created last month, but unemployment drops to 8.1 percent. “The Choice”: will the plans and proposals of Pres. Obama or Mitt Romney bring more jobs to Americans?
In the “Washington Watch” roundtable: Joan Walsh, editor at large for Salon.com; Armstrong Williams, political commentator and host of “The Armstrong Williams Show”; political scientist Wilmer Leon, host of “Inside the Issues” on Sirius XM Radio; and Steve Clemons, Washington editor at large for “The Atlantic.” Plus, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis breaks down the unemployment numbers and where the job growth is taking place.
And a sneak preview of a new TV One series on the tough-love world of parole officers. All that, plus, actor[s] Wendell Pierce, Sheryl Lee Ralph and life on the floor of the Democratic National Convention.
It’s all happening right now on “Washington Watch.”
