Republican presidential candidates Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, participate in a debate sponsored by Fox News on March 3, 2016 in Detroit, Mi

Coming up on today's show:

  • John Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio who ran for president in 2016 and is the author of Two Paths: America Divided or United (Thomas Dunne Books, 2017), looks back on the tumult of the 2016 race for the Republican presidential nomination and where the party goes from here.
  • Alissa Rubin, The New York Times bureau chief in Paris, talks about the results of the French election on Sunday and next month’s run-off between the top two candidates, plus deconstructs how the French identity is wrapped up in the country’s politics.
  • The United States may be behind other advanced nations when it comes to treating healthcare as a human right, but American law protects free speech as a right more often and more intensely than anywhere in the world. Floyd Abrams, a senior partner in the Cahill Gordon & Reindel law firm, who has litigated cases ranging from the Pentagon Papers case to Citizens United and has taught as a visiting lecturer at the Yale Law School and is the author of The Soul of the First Amendment, examines why the first amendment is so vital to the nation's identity.
  • The playwright J.T. Rogers discusses the new Broadway production of his play, "Oslo," based on the negotiations that led to the 1993 Oslo accord between the Palestinians and Israelis.
