Greasing the Political Wheels

5 segments
Senator Tom Harkin’s once-every-four-year steak fry might go a long way to deciding who wins the Iowa Primary. Time Magazine's Mark Halperin joins us to review this presidential tradition, as well as Hillary Clinton's healthcare plan. Also, we talk with Gary Taubes about information on public health: where it comes from, and why most of it might not be all that useful. And, we listen live to President Bush's nomination of a new attorney general with analysis from's Emily Bazelon, hear about a new radio documentary series on Jewish immigration in America, and take your multi-religious calls on what holidays you are observing in the month of September.
