Is California's Democratic Party Keeping Up with Voters? California's Democratic Party will convene tomorrow night in Los Angeles to hear speeches and endorse candidates in this year's elections. A majority of the party is black, Latino or Asian and under 54. But their leaders are old, white people. US Senator Dianne Feinstein is 80; Barbara Boxer is 73; Governor Brown is 75; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is 73 and Party Chairman John Burton is 81. We talk about pent up ambition, the super-majority in Sacramento and the rise of the Independent voter.
Is the United States losing its moral authority in the world? American support for human rights has often been criticized as more about words than it is about action. President Trump is creating more skeptics than ever. What are the consequences for America's role in the world?

As he praised the accomplishments of the graduates, he listed some of his own… and made reference to reports that he leaked intelligence to the Russians and tried to shut down an FBI Investigation into his associates.
Healthcare debate now shifts to the Senate Both parties are celebrating yesterday's House bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. House Republicans are cheering because they were able to pass it. Democrats are happy because they think it's so bad. We look at the details… and the politics.
