Episode Summary

Over-Parenting Parents and Bush's 60-day Tour
Are today's mothers guilty of over-parenting? Judith Warner thinks so. "First Up" this week Zanny interviews the author of Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety about her wildly successful argument that today's parents are overwhelmed with getting their kids into the best schools, enriching their minds, and shuttling them to every sort of extracurricular activity, all the while juggling a rigorous career.

And joining Zanny on our "Plus 2" panel is Michelle Cottle of The New Republic and Jonah Goldberg of National Review for a discussion of the network news landscape following the departure of Dan Rather.

President Bush has staked his second term - and perhaps his legacy - on revamping Social Security. But the response thus far as been tepid at best. The president and his surrogates have now set out on a 60-cities-in-60 day barnstorming tour to help sell the proposal for private accounts. Why has the public reaction to the concept of privatization been so resistant? On our "Back Page" Zanny interviews Stephen Moore of The Club for Growth, an influential supporter of the president's plan who has expressed disappointment in the marketing effort.moreless
