Full Program



Part 1

We begin with an analysis of how the two Republican front-runners will do in a match-up with President Obama. Allan Lichtman, the Distinguished Professor of History at American University joins us. He is the author of “The Keys to the White House: A Surefire Way of Predicting the Next President”, a system that has correctly predicted the outcomes of all U.S. presidential elections since 1984.

Part 2

Then we look into the intense religiosity of Rick Santorum that pundits argue cost him the election in Michigan and make him unelectable in the general election. Meanwhile at the state level, much of Santorum’s extreme positions on social issues are being voted into law in legislatures in Virginia, Alabama and Oklahoma and will be voted on tomorrow in the U.S. Senate. Sarah Posner, Senior Editor at Religion Dispatches and author of “God’s Profits: Faith, Fraud and the Republican Crusade for Values” joins us.

Then finally we look into the new nukes-for-food deal with North Korea with John Feffer, the co-director of Foreign Policy in Focus. He was a PanTech Fellow in Korean Studies at Stanford University and taught at Sungkonghoe University in Seoul, South Korea and is the author of “North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis.”
