Main Topic Republican Candidates: the Ins, Outs and In-betweens 10 MIN, 12 SEC

Republican Candidates: the Ins, the Outs and the In-betweensThe Iowa Straw Poll drew a tiny minority of that state's voters to a Republican fundraiser on Saturday, but the results were disproportionate to the turnout. Tim Pawlenty has withdrawn; Michele Bachmann looks serious and Ron Paul is still a factor. Rick Perry, who wasn't there for the straw poll, announced his candidacy Saturday in South Carolina, then paid a visit to Iowa.

Main Topic Israel, the West Bank and the Palestinians at the UN 10 MIN, 45 SEC

On of the biggest protests in the history of Israel is a development that's not being covered much in the US news media. What's at stake for the Netanyahu government? What does it have to do with settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem?

Main Topic Who'll Get the Crystal Cathedral? 10 MIN, 37 SEC

Televangelist Robert Schuller's Chrystal Cathedral is bankrupt, and Schuller's family runs a board of directors that recently changed its mind about selling the complex for $50 million or more. But the lack of donor response suggests that the family has lost the confidence of the congregation. Last week, the official committee of creditors threatened to sue if the board continues to block the sale.
