Editor's Note: Because of an issue with internet connectivity during the broadcast, part of Rick Pearson's appearance ended early and abruptly. After the broadcast, we retaped the last question and answer.

Our Friday politics roundup included President Joe Biden's oval office address following his trip to Israel; Congress still struggling to seat a House Speaker and Veto Session about to begin in Springfield.
