The Jack Rice Show, Tuesday, November 14, 2006.
Imagine an unpopular President and a country tired of war. Imagine the electorate taking out their dissatisfaction with this President by handing both houses of Congress to the opposing party. You think I'm talkin about 2006 but I'm not. It was 1946. This happened before. Jack spoke with William Leuchtenburg, professor emeritus of History at UNC-Chapel Hill about the changes in the House and Senate the mideterm elections made.
Iran is in the news again. They want to talk and PM Blair thinks we should. President Bush says no. Babek Yektafar, Editor-in-chief of Washington Prism discussed Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speech today on nuclear fuel.
Barak Goodman, producer of Frontline's "A Hidden Life" looked at men of power who lived double and hidden lives. How public should the private lives of politicans become and how far should the media go to find out?
Finally, one of Jack's favorite guests, Paul Raffaele joins the program to talk about his latest adventure. Paul wrote a piece on a species of primate that could become extinct in the Congo for this month's Smithsonian.
