Choice cuts from the world of politics online. Have lunch with Rob Millis and Will Coghlan for the latest election news. Political news can be hard to swallow, but this program is engaging, brief and easy to digest.
The North Koreans have been playing nice, as of late, trying to gain respect from the international community and strengthen the regime of Kim Jong-il. It almost makes you yearn for the days of brash nuclear ambition and daily missile tests. Today's PL Flashback will give you a glimpse of the North Korea we used to know (and maybe still do).
For your PL Flashback fix, today we'll revisit the Vice President who never really left. Dick's back in the headlines this week, again. So did torture really work, does it matter now, and when do we get to move on?
To mark the death of the Lion of the Senate, we'll revisit the cause that was Senator Ted Kennedy's signature issue during his final years in office. For Lunch today, we'll flashback to our primer on the health care reform question: what might change, who it will help, and what it will cost.
Back in the good ole' days of the 2008 campaign, everyone was happy because we didn't have to worry about complicated, confusing stories like health care reform and, well, health care reform. Instead, we got to cover ridiculous nonsense like Sarah Palin's wardrobe malfeasence and Obama's two-step with Ellen!
Back in the final days of the 2008 campaign, it looked like Barack Obama had it in the bag. But a big win for the Dems wasn't necessarily a sure thing. In this Political Lunch Summer Vacation Flashback episode, Will takes a look at the ways in which McCain could have pulled off an upset victory.
Today we're going back-in-time to revisit the early days of the Friday 10-in-3, back when Rob and Will actually managed to get it all done in less than three minutes. Usually. In this flashback episode, the PL team covers the presidential candidates' economic plans, the GOP brand resurgence, and the famous Bridge to Nowhere!
Today ends week two of the Political Lunch Flashback, with a trip back in time to last fall's Republican National Convention in Minnesota. Rob was there for all the action, including a look at what it's like to cover a convention, and of course the big debut of Sarah Palin!
The Political Lunch Flashback roadtrip rolls on! Today we're back in Denver, Colorado for day one of the Democratic Convention. This was Barack's big moment, but not before plenty of political wrangling, old-school conventioneering, and... roller coaster rides??
It's week two of the Political Lunch Summer Vacation Flashback, and we'll kick things off with a look back at the biggest presidential primary day in modern history: 30-plus candidates, record votes cast, lines at the polls, and more than a few surprising results.
