Tomorrow's Elections: Big Money but Not Much Interest

Hosted by

Candidates and interest groups have spent a record $225 million on tomorrow's California primary campaigns.  But less than a third of the voters are expected to bother to go to the polls. We hear why it was worth all that money, to whom, and why some contests really do matter.  Also, a remembrance of John Wooden from the man who co-authored A Game Plan for Life. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, using Predator drones, the US now leads the world in "targeted killings." Do they work? Are they legal? Will they set a dangerous precedent when other nations get the same technology?
