After Iowa and New Hampshire, Trump and Sanders are gaining ground among Republicans and Democrats. But there's a long way to go. We hear about strengths, weaknesses and challenges to come in both political parties. 

Later on the program, adversaries of North Korea are responding to recent "provocative actions."

SCOTUS Halts Obama's Clean Energy Plan 6 MIN, 7 SEC

The US Supreme Court has surprised the Obama Administration by taking up a challenge to the President's authority before it worked its way through the lower courts. It's about the Clean Power Plan ordering states to reduce carbon emissions by about 30%. Chris Mooney is Energy and Environment writer for the Washington Post.

New Hampshire's over, Let the Campaigns Continue 35 MIN, 34 SEC

Donald Trump leads what looks like a long road to the Republican nomination with just 12 of the 1,237 convention delegates needed. Ohio Governor John Kasich is a surprising new challenger — if the “happy warrior” can last until the action moves to the Midwest. Jeb Bush is now running as the prospective Commander in Chief — endorsed in a radio spot by his brother, the architect of the War in Iraq. After crushing Hillary Clinton last night, Bernie Sanders campaigned today for black votes in Harlem. Up next are Nevada and South Carolina.

World Responds to North Korea's 'Destabilizing and Provocative' Acts 7 MIN, 49 SEC

In the past few days, North Korea has challenged its many adversaries with a series of provocative actions. It has launched a rocket, restarted a reactor that could fuel nuclear weapons and it claims to have tested a hydrogen bomb. That's created anxiety from Asia to Capitol Hill. How are its many adversaries responding to these "destabilizing and provocative actions?" We ask Jonathan Pollack, a senior fellow in the John L. Thornton China Center and the Center for East Asia Policy Studies at the Brookings Institution. He's also the author of No Exit: North Korea, Nuclear Weapons and International Security.
