Politics can be nasty, but many Americans still yearn for idealism in our elected leaders. The latest in our Political Projections film series takes a look at political idealism in Hollywood. Also: the rags-to-riches story of the bin Laden family. Kurt Vonnegut’s son, Mark Vonnegut, talks about his father’s life and work. And we hear about how Obama, McCain, and Clinton pop up in our dreams!
