Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.

Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of Michael Seifert. We know that powerful people influence politics. By comparison, it’s sometimes hard to believe that ordinary citizens with modest means can make a difference. But inside the voting booth, everyone is equal. Seifert is a Catholic priest from Cameron Park, Texas – the poorest place in American, according to the 2000 Census. The rate of civic participation matched the economic description. But, Father Seifert has been encouraging his neighbors to get out the vote, and their actions have resulted in more attention from local politicians, and better quality of life for the townspeople.
