Two of Dallas County's top-elected officials — County Judge Clay Jenkins and District Attorney Craig Watkins — talk with host Jason Whitely about the voter ID controversy and discuss the Watkins' legal issues.

On My Voice, My Opinion, State Sen. Wendy Davis could announce a run for governor as early as this week. Texas Democratic Party Vice Chair Tarsha Hardy pleas with Davis not just to run — but to address other issues. Will that help the senator bring people to the polls?

U.S. Army Pvt. Bradley Manning is starting a 35-year prison sentence for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents. With good behavior, though, he could be released much sooner. But how appropriate is his sentence? That's the focus of Flashpoint — from the right, Mark Davis of 660 AM The Answer, and from the left, author and producer Katie Sherrod.

And on Reporter Roundtable, has Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst lost his swagger? His recent phone call to Allen police is the latest drama in an already embarrassing political year. What does that mean to his chances for re-election?
