Will Super Tuesday Settle the Question? Mitt Romney won the presidential caucuses Saturday in Washington State, but no delegates were picked for this summer's convention. Tomorrow, more delegates will be chosen than in all the previous primaries and caucuses combined.
Will Super Tuesday Settle the Question? Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is at the White House today, talking with President Obama about possible war with Iran. Meantime, Republican Presidential candidates are preparing to face off in ten states on Super Tuesday tomorrow. Mitt Romney won the presidential caucuses Saturday in Washington State, but no delegates were picked for this summer's convention. Tomorrow, more delegates will be chosen than in all the previous primaries and caucuses combined. Some top party leaders are falling in line behind Romney, before it's too late to bring the party together. Is it a bad year for Rick Santorum 's social issues? Is it time to focus on the economy?

Human Rights in the era of Donald Trump President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said today the US might pull out of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. Serious violators of human rights are members of the Council itself–and a US resignation could make things worse. Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
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?
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
