What does President Obama’s new Treasury Secretary pick mean for the debt ceiling fight? The Nation Washington Correspondent John Nichols joins us live.

Then: a report from on the ground in Texas, where activists have kicked off a new wave of direct actions to block construction of a pipeline that would import oil from Canada’s tar sands.

Finally: Hollywood does slavery. Long-time journalist and newly-minted novelist Jesse Douglas Allen-Taylor (his new book is Sugaree Rising) joins us in studio to discuss the racial politics of Lincoln and Django Unchained.
