America's Highest Court Is in Recess

Hosted by

In the final weeks of this year's term, the US Supreme Court was sharply divided on the death penalty, guns and Guantánamo Bay. But compared to last year, it's been an Era of Good Feeling between liberals and conservatives. Are the justices less ideological or did they choose cases with less emotional impact? Will either McCain or Obama want to re-shape the third branch of government? Also, fear and intimidation reduce voter turn-out in Zimbabwe and, after weeks and months of bitter political fighting, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are together again in Unity, New Hampshire.
