The Swing States and the Debates

Hosted by
While Cheney and Lieberman were debating last night in Kentucky-why were Bush and Gore both campaigning in Michigan? America has 100 million likely voters, but this year's election may be decided by less than one million. The margin of victory likely will come from the so-called "swing states," now the focus of both presidential campaigns. Today on our program, how have this week's debates gone down in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida and Washington state?
  • Newsmaker: A remarkable interview with Maja Vucenovic, a high school teacher in Belgrade, who tells us what it's like be part of a peaceful revolution. It's a very moving account, as she tells us about Serbia's new President, how she and her neighbors feel about the US, and about her own sense of relief and liberation.
