How Will Bernie Sanders Influence the Democratic Party Platform?

Hosted by

President Obama endorsed Hillary Clinton for president Thursday in a video released by the White House. This came shortly after the president met with Bernie Sanders. Sanders is already looking ahead to the Washington DC primary and the convention in July, but he also said that he’s interested in seeing the final result of the California primary first. In Los Angeles alone, there are still about 500,000 uncounted ballots. Why is that? LA County Registrar Recorder and County Clerk Dean Logan explains. Also, now that all but one of the primaries are out of the way, both parties have begun to craft their platforms. How will Sanders influence the Democratic Party platform? Then, what do Axl Rose and Barbra Streisand have in common? They’ve both tried to scrub the web of stuff they didn’t like. Next, we’ll speak with author Adam Haslett about his new novel titled “Imagine Me Gone,” a powerful story of a family trying to cope with mental illness. And finally, you now have to be 21 years old to buy tobacco products in California, unless you’re active duty military – the legal age remains 18 for military personnel. And though we usually think of 18 as the age one becomes an adult, that hasn’t always been the case.
