President Obama is hitting the road again to make his case for preserving tax cuts for 98% of Americans.

Tonight, Ed welcomes Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D- MD) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) for the latest on the “fiscal cliff.”

Meantime, reports out of today’s labor meeting with the president looks very good for progressives.

We’ll have the details and reaction from James Hoffa, President of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.

Then, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham say they have even more questions after U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice tries to clear the air on Benghazi.

Ed will have analysis on today’s meeting from Joan Walsh, Salon’s Editor at Large, and author of “What’s The Matter With White People? Why We Long For A Golden Age That Never Was.”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid moves towards the “nuclear option” to stop Republican obstruction. Steve Benan, msnbc Contributor, writer, The Maddow Blog, joins Ed on the filibuster showdown.

He dared to speak the truth on Fox News, saying the cable channel “is operating as a wing of the Republican Party.” Now Fox News is going after Tom Ricks. We’ll have the details on that.

And in the BIG Finish, Black Friday shoppers bust another Repbulican myth about the Obama economy. David Cay Johnston, columnist for Reuters, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of “Perfectly Legal” and “Free Lunch,” will set the record straight!

It’s going to another blockbuster @edshow at 8pET on @msnbctv.
