Supporters are cheering Bernie Sanders' determination to carry on until the Democratic convention. Skeptics say his clout has already diminished because he's waited too long. We look at the history and possible future of an unlikely presidential campaign.

Also, CIA Director Brennan testifies on ISIS threat. Later on the program, Disneyland's as American as apple pie. Will they love it in Shanghai?

CIA Director Brennan Testifies on the ISIS Threat 6 MIN, 30 SEC

President Obama has insisted that ISIS — or ISIL, as the administration calls it, is losing territory and power, but John Brennan told Congress today that’s only part of the story. At a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, the director of the CIA reminded that our resources to fight terrorism are "very modest," and added that ISIL is urging the group’s followers "to conduct attacks in their home countries if they were unable to travel to Syria and Iraq." Mark Mazzetti, national security correspondent for the New York Times, has more on the story.

The Bernie Sanders Phenomenon: How Long Will It Last? 34 MIN, 22 SEC

Less than 15 months ago, Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders made a 10-minute announcement to a few reporters and hustled back into the Senate. Since then, millions have felt "the Bern," massive crowds have turned out, and Sanders has gotten enough votes to seriously contend for the Democratic nomination. Now he wants to define the issues and change the rules at this summer's convention. Will his supporters hold their noses and vote for Hillary Clinton? Can the campaign that came out of nowhere really become a "movement?"

Shanghai Disneyland Opens, but Will the Chinese Come? 9 MIN, 3 SEC

Exported Disneylands have not always started out strong. Will the Magic Kingdom in Shanghai be a different story?

The original Disneyland in Anaheim covers 100 acres. Disneyland in Shanghai spreads over 1000. It's the biggest Magic Kingdom of all, with 30 attractions -- more than half of which are original to the new location. David Koenig, author of five books about the Disney Company, including Mouse Tales: A Behind the Ears Look at Disneyland, gives us a preview.
