Full Program



Part 1

We begin with an analysis of the political landscape in Florida as attention shifts to the next key Republican primary following Newt Gingrich’s surprise and substantial upset win in South Carolina. Peter Brown, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute and the chief spokesman for the Florida polls, joins us to assess whether the angry populism that Newt Gingrich stirred up in South Carolina is ripe for the picking in Florida. peter brown

Then, as Mitt Romney just announced he is releasing some of his income taxes, we look into the source of the wealth of the company he created, Bain Capital. Joining us is Justin Elliot, a reporter for Salon.com who has an article at Salon “The Roots of Bain Capital in El Salvador’s Civil War”.
