On this week’s episode of Gabfest Radio from Slate and WNYC, Political Gabfest panelists Emily Bazelon, John Dickerson, and David Plotz – in a special live taping hosted by WBUR and the Harvard Book Store in Cambridge, Massachusetts – discuss the malleability of the “red line” President Obama defined for an intervention in Syria, and a possible ratcheting up of the surveillance state after the Boston Marathon bombings. They also debate whether New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's lap-band surgery is purely about improving his health, as he says, or whether presidential politics also played a role.
