Bush's African Legacy Coming to a movie theater near you: a two-and-a-half minute trailer, narrated by President Bush, showcasing his anti-AIDS programs in Africa. This week, the President is visiting that continent to help give a positive spin to his legacy. He's touring five countries where his anti-AIDS and malaria programs have taken hold. Even his US critics concede he's made a big difference for millions of people, and he's been warmly received in Benin, Tanzania and Rwanda. What are the trade-offs? Do abstinence-only programs do more harm than good? What about poverty and the shortage of food? Do the countries he's not visiting need more help than the five where he's touching down?

Will the world's most powerful country be led by a businessman , a military veteran or a former preacher ? As Democrats and Republicans perform their civic duty, we talk to a wide range of foreign observers. What do they think of George W. Bush? Who do they want in the White House next?

Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
