Rhetoric and Reality in Presidential Campaigns

Hosted by

Both this year's current presidential front-runners say they have shrugged off Washington lobbyists and embraced public financing of political campaigns.  We look at McCain and Obama and compare their rhetoric with their records. Also, the latest suicide bombing kills kills a Pakistani Army General, and the New York Philharmonic will be playing tomorrow in Pyong Yang, North Korea, despite its image as the most closed country on earth. We hear from an American who's been there 25 times.
