Howard Dean and Heritage president Jim DeMint spoke about the 2014 election and beyond. Plus, Crowley’s conversation with Congressman John Lewis on the 50th anniversary of the march on Washington. Embeddable video highlights and the full transcript are after the jump.

SEN. CRUZ on his citizenship: " I was an American by birth and serving as a U.S. senator, I think it's appropriate that I'd be only an American.”

CRUZ on defunding Obamacare: "We do not have the votes right now… I believe if we see a grassroots tsunami, that is going to cause Republicans and Democrats to listen to the people.”

HOWARD DEAN on Sen. Cruz: "Ted Cruz may be a very good politician, but he certainly does not know anything about health care… God help us if he ever does get to be anything more than the senator from Texas.”

Bash asks, should Speaker Boehner be replaced if he doesn’t act to shut down the government if Obamacare isn't defunded?
JIM DEMINT: "We're saying this thing should be defunded, it should not go forward, the president is arbitrarily implementing the law… so, we need to stop it and this is a time that it needs to be stopped."

CNN FILMS Broadcast of ‘OUR NIXON’ Bows Thursday, August 1 – Preview

The CNN FILMS documentary OUR NIXON will broadcast Thursday, August 1 at 9:00pm ET&PT.  The two-hour, all-archival film, which largely draws upon footage shot by ex-President Nixon's closest aides, has received wide acclaim during its exhibition at film festivals in 2013, a year that marks the centennial of Nixon’s birth.  Until recently, the films and audiotapes were retained by the National Archives, as part of the Watergate investigation.

Co-producers Brian Frye and Penny Lane curated film from more than 500 reels of re-discovered Super 8 home movies shot by special assistant to the president Dwight Chapin, chief of staff H.R. Haldeman, and domestic affairs adviser John Ehrlichman, to compose the documentary, and audio excerpts culled from nearly 4,000 hours of secret White House tapes.   Through their documentation of both routine and extraordinary moments – including their heady exuberance in the wake of Nixon’s election victory in 1968: the inauguration, historic diplomatic missions to China and Europe, the exultant reactions to the moon landing, festive celebrations at the White House, and Trisha Nixon’s wedding, multifaceted, comprehensive portraits of each man – and the White House – emerges.

Chapin, Haldeman, and Ehrlichman captured their .  Along the way, an intimate portrait of the inner workings of the White House develops. FULL POST
