Part 1

We begin with an analysis of whether super PACs will be able to buy the election for Mitt Romney and speak with presidential historian Allan Lichtman whose prediction system has correctly predicted the outcome of all US presidential elections since 1984. Since he has predicted an Obama victory, we look into whether money and a wildcard like Romney’s close friend Bibi Netanyahu could alter the equation.

Then we assess the chances of the CIA’s man in Egypt, Omar Suleiman, otherwise know as Egypt’s “Torture-in-Chief, becoming Egypt’s next president. We speak with Lisa Hajjar, a professor of Sociology at UC Santa Barbara and the co-editor of “Jadaliyya”.
