Judy asks Sanders about nuclear weapons
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders recently declared his candidacy for President. On May 27, I joined hundreds of people at the South Church in Portsmouth NH for a town hall meeting with the Senator. He answered a number of questions from the audience, and I was able to ask the last one, about whether he supported the $1 trillion dollar build-up of US nuclear forces. It's "all about our national priorities," he said.

immigrant detention profits CCA

We've been asking all the candidates about a federal budget mandate that sets a quota for detention of immigrants, many of whom are held in for-profit prisons.  So far all we've gotten in response are variations on "I'll look into it."

Will Kim run for President?

Adam Baum, a journalist who often turns up stories others miss, says political consultants believe reality show stars are well suited to be president.  That's why we're starting our watch for the Kim Kardashian campaign on April 1.
