On this week’s episode of Gabfest Radio, Political Gabfest panelists Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz discuss whether Obamacare is doomed and whether department stores can and should racially profile to deter theft. 

On the Culture Gabfest, panelists Stephen Metcalf, Dana Stevens, and Julia Turner talk about Lou Reed's generation-defining music and eternal brand of cool. They then turn to the Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet, starring Orlando Bloom and Condola Rashad, and end with a conversation about the artistry of Internet memes—can Twitter be a platform for 21st-century conceptual art?
