State of the Union

First Aired: June 30, 2006

Political polarization in the U.S. is examined by George Stephanopoulos, who visits Montclair, N.J., which voted heavily Democratic in 2004, and Franklin, Tenn., a GOP stronghold. The hour also assesses the impact of cable-news talk shows and partisan Web sites; and Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.) bemoan the lack of bipartisanship in the Senate.

TV Premiere Dates

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
