Covering tonight’s results and their indications of who could lead the Republican and Democratic Parties in this year’s presidential election and what that might mean for the country, we have the prominent economist at the University of Texas James Galbraith, who was the Executive Director of the Joint Economic Committee of Congress and is the author of “Inequality: What Everyone Needs to Know”. He gives us an update on the Cruz/Trump battle in Texas and provide an analysis of Bernie Sanders’ economic program that has been under attack as well as trying to assess what kind of economic plan a President Trump has in store to provide huuuge growth and amazing jobs that will make us great again.

And examining the Cruz, Rubio, Trump, Clinton and Sanders foreign policy landscapes ahead we have Jacob Heilbrunn, a Senior Editor at The National Interest. Among other things he explores the possibility that a Donald Trump foreign policy might be to the left of Hillary Clinton’s, something that already has the neocons hyperventilating as Jacob has observed in his recent article “Why Trump is Panicking Robert Kagan”.

And looking into the two big constituencies in the South that will decide the winner on the Republican side, the evangelicals, and on the Democratic side, the African/American churches, Anthea Butler joins us. She is the Chair of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania and author of “The Gospel According to Sarah: How Sarah Palin and the Tea Party are Galvanizing the Religious Right”.
