KQED 9: Fri, Jul 3, 2015 -- 7:30 PM

*Barack Obama seems to be defying the "lame-duck" label many second-term presidents face. The recent Supreme Court decisions supporting Obamacare and legalizing same-sex marriage, the bipartisan passage of a trade deal, and re-established diplomatic relations with Cuba mark not only a turning point for the U.S. but also major victories for Obama's legacy. Peter Baker of The New York Times will take a closer look at President Obama's triumphant June and the remaining priority issues on his agenda.
*New Jersey Governor Chris Christie launched his presidential campaign this week making him the 14th Republican seeking the White House. But with a field that is expected to grow to at least 16 by the end of the month, how are the candidates trying to distinguish themselves from the pack? Molly Ball of The Atlantic and Jeff Zeleny of CNN will update us on the political events of the week including Jeb Bush's 33 years of tax returns and the State Department's release of some 30,000 Hillary Clinton emails. They'll also have a closer look at how the issues of immigration, gay marriage, religious freedom, legalized marijuana, and the Confederate flag are having an impact on Campaign 2016.
* And with a renewed focus on race following the shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, last month, Gwen Ifill examines how we all bring our own filters to our world view in this week's Gwen's Take: How We See Each Other...and How We Don't.
*As the Supreme Court wrapped up its term this week, John Roberts also marked 10 years as chief justice. How has Roberts left his mark on the Court in his first decade? Joan Biskupic of Reuters and Pete Williams of NBC News explore in the Washington Week Backstory.
