Below are excerpts from this week's Talk Talk, Obama, Contexts, and Bailouts. Every Sunday CUIP's president Jacqueline Salit and strategist and philosopher Fred Newman watch the political talk shows and discuss them. Here are excerpts from their dialogue on Sunday, March 16, 2008 after watching "The Chris Matthews Show" and "This Week with George Stephanopoulos.

Newman: And the answer is he aims to change the political and social climate in this country which produced those remarks. That's his position. And he's asking: Do you want to support that or not? A lot of the people who are creating the brouhaha, if you look carefully at who they are and what they're saying, don't want to change that climate.
