The outrage over the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin reaches the White House as President Obama speaks out about the investigation in Florida and says that Martin's tragic death makes him think about his own daughters. Will the president lead a national conversation about race? Plus, the president focuses on energy this week as the specter of high-summer gas prices looms but can he limit the political fallout from this pocketbook issue? We'll ask White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe.

Plus, a special Sunday morning conversation about the troubling case of Trayvon Martin, the public outrage that has ensued, and the soul searching that the President has called for regarding the racial dimensions of his death. Plus, will rising gas prices overtake jobs as the number one issue of the fall campaign? Who's to blame for the pain at the pump? Our special roundtable: Fmr. Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour (R); head of the NAACP, Ben Jealous; NPR's Michele Norris; presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin; and the New York Times' David Brooks.
