Posted on Jan 18, 2013

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists explore President Obama’s plan for lowering gun violence. Will it have a measurable effect on shootings? Or is it a first step in changing the terms of debate?

In the meantime, the GOP is holding a retreat to rethink its political message. First up, make a short-term deal on the debt limit. Finally, Obama officially begins his second term Monday but what’s his legacy so far? And what does he need to do to ensure success in the next four years?

To tackle these questions and more on this week’s program, Scheer is joined by Christopher Edley, dean of the law school at UC Berkeley and a senior Obama campaign adviser, Michael Steele, MSNBC political analyst and former chairman of the Republican National Committee, and show host Matt Miller.
