Diplomacy in Asia and Partisan Politics in California

Hosted by

Attorney General Jerry Brown has not yet said he’ll run for the Democratic nomination for Governor. But Republican candidates have already found an issue. Brown’s press secretary might have broken state law by taping a telephone conversation without asking permission from the other party. Brown says it wasn’t illegal, but is it enough for him to investigate his own office? What did Brown himself have to say while the recorder was running? What about next year’s race for Governor? Plus, after 40 years, the brown pelican is off the endangered species list. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, as President Obama goes to Asia, the US is still in deep trouble while China is riding high. What does America want, and what can it provide in the newest World Order.
