Barbara Radnofsky is a Democratic politician, author and mediator from the U.S. state of Texas. She was the first woman to have won the Democratic nomination for a U.S. Senate seat in Texas.
We discuss with Barbara the potential Democratic candidates for various offices in Texas. There are many young, talented people, with accomplishments, who could change politics in Texas, and the nation. The bench is deep.
We speak with Melvin Goodman about Biden's trip overseas, and his anticipated meeting with Putin. Melvin A. Goodman is a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy in Washington, DC, and an adjunct professor of international relations at Johns Hopkins University. His 42-year government career included tours at the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of State, and the Department of Defense’s National War College, where he was a professor of international security.
We discuss what areas of national and international issues each of these leaders will have with respect to what their countries need, and what their respective neighbors want. There will likely be contention on many fronts, and both the U.S. and Russia have domestic problems to solve. This is in addition to international issues, such as climate change, terrorism, and the problems caused by these.
