FROM THIS EPISODE

If elected, Hillary Clinton would be America’s first woman president — a historic prospect she downplayed in her campaign in 2008.  Not any more. We get a profile.

Later on the program, Iran’s latest elections. Is the victory of moderates more than skin deep?

Hillary Clinton: Tough, Tested...Not Always Trusted 40 MIN, 53 SEC

Hillary Clinton, one of the world’s most famous people, the former Senator and Secretary of State has a resume designed for the White House. It also comes with a record that’s opened challenges from Republicans — and from the Left of her own party. We hear about feminism, civil rights, the trials of a First Lady and how a thick skin can become a liability as well as an asset.

Can Reformers Bring Change to Iran? 9 MIN, 24 SEC

Before Iran’s recent Parliamentary elections, 90% of reform-minded candidates were screened out of the running.  Nonetheless, so-called “moderates” did score victories — not just in Parliament, but in the Assembly of Experts, which might well choose the next Supreme Leader.  Trita Parsi is President of the National Iranian American Council and author of A Single Roll of the Dice: Obama’s Diplomacy with Iran. He discusses what the elections mean for the Islamic Republic and for the United States.
