Our first podcast of the Second Barack Obama administration! Greg Dworkin joined us to take note of the major themes of the President's inaugural address, the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, and some mile markers along the arc of history. "Gun Appreciation Day" was marked this past Saturday, and enthusiasts celebrated by shooting themselves and others at three different gun shows around the country. In fact, at least 90 Americans appreciated their guns in ways that killed, injured or just plain scared their fellow Americans to death on Saturday, leaving at least 34 dead and 65 wounded in 34 states and the District of Columbia. We spent our second hour on filibuster reform, recapping reports that Harry Reid may be backing away from the "talking filibuster" or even from the use of the constitutional option. But there may be other reforms just as powerful if not more powerful that are under consideration. We talked with Armando about what they were, how they'd work, which of them might be likely to make it to the floor, and under what circumstances any of them might pass.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
