Part 1

We begin with an analysis of what Republican presidential candidates are calling “Obama’s war on religion” and what a growing number of women in America are calling the Republican war on women. Stephanie Sequino, a professor of Economics at the University of Vermont, who has done research on the role of religiosity in resisting and retarding gender equality, joins us.

Part 2

Then we speak with Saul Alinsky’s protégé Nicholas Von Hoffman about his mentor who he worked along side of for a decade as a community organizer on the streets of Chicago. Since Newt Gingrich continually calls Obama “a Saul Alinsky radical”, we discuss Nicholas Von Hoffman’s new book “Radical: A Portrait of Saul Alinsky” to determine what it is about this mother of all community organizers that has Cesar Chavez, Dick Armey, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the Tea Party studying his tactics and strategies.
