Meet the Press links — Sunday, August 2

As the nation's economic recovery remains in flux -- and many Americans have yet to see signs of improvement -- we sit down with one of President Obama's key advisers charged with getting things back on track: National Economic Council Director Larry Summers. What has the Obama administration accomplished thus far? What more can they do? And when will struggling families start to feel some relief? Plus, insights on the politics of the health care debate and the Gates-Crowley White House meeting; an analysis of the latest public opinion polls, and a gripping look inside the 2008 presidential race: we're joined exclusively by Dan Balz & Haynes Johnson, authors of the just published book, "The Battle for America 2008"; Fmr. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-TN); and Fmr. Rep. J.C. Watts (R-OK).
