5/4/12 SHOW: CAN OBAMA RUN ON “HE KEPT AS SAFE?”; BALANCING HUMAN RIGHTS AND THE U.S.-CHINESE RELATIONSHIP; MORE ON SWANS AND WAL*MART
On this week’s show the Ivory Tower panelists examine Obama’s record as the war Commander-in-Chief and discuss whether he would be wise to run as the President who kept America safe with his aggressive military posture. Then the panelists turn to the delicate human rights drama played out in China just as Secretaries Clinton and Geithner were arriving in Beijing to discuss the broader and crucial U.S.-China relationship. How should the U.S. balance individual human rights cases alongside state to state relations? Finally, given a flood of letters to the show, we return to two contentious topics: the theft of swan eggs in Manlius, and Wal*Mart’s bribery in Mexico.
