Hillary Clinton has bounced back again with a big win in Ohio and a squeaker in Texas, enough to make sure that she and Barack Obama will be campaigning for weeks to come. We analyze the results and look to the future. Also, Mike Huckabee calls it quits, and Love an Consequences. Why can't agents and editors detect fraud before publication?
FROM THIS EPISODE
Mike Huckabee ended his campaign last night, leaving John McCain as the last Republican standing. Today, he got the ritual blessing from his party's White House incumbent. James Antle is associate editor of the American Spectator, a conservative monthly.
John McCain has wrapped up his party's nomination, but Hillary Clinton has bounced back again with a big win in Ohio and a squeaker in Texas, enough to make sure that she and Barack Obama will be campaigning for weeks to come. While McCain gets a unifying White House blessing, the Democrats are likely to remain divided all the way to the August convention. We look at the exit polls and what they say about change, experience and the impact of negative campaigning? Do Republicans really like McCain all that much? Will Democratic divisions be a source of weakness or strength come November?

First it was A Million Little Pieces. Now, just two years later, a second fake memoir has fooled a major American publisher. Will there be any changes? Love and Consequences purported to be the memoir of a half-white, half-Native-American girl, who grew up in a black foster family in South Central Los Angeles. Margaret B. Jones supposedly carried illegal guns and sold rugs for the gang called the Bloods. But none of that really happened and Jones turned out to be Margaret Seltzer, who grew up in a comfortable suburb in the San Fernando Valley. Rachael Donadio is a writer and editor at the New York Times Books Review.
