Clinton, Sanders: Two Weeks Till Iowa
The Democratic presidential candidates met this weekend, at a debate that capped off a week of twists and turns in the race between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. We talk with expert observers about where the Clinton-Sanders race stands now, two weeks before voters in Iowa meet in caucuses there in the first contest of the Democratic Party's nominating process. What do polls and fundraising really tell us about how this race is shaping up? And is this contest really becoming a decision point for Democrats to choose between change and continuity? We talk with political scientists Bert Johnson and Matt Dickinson from Middlebury College.
Also in the program, teaching creativity. A new book makes the case that going outside to explore - early and often - is vital to education. We talk to author and educator Erik Shonstrom of Champlain College about curiosity, learning, and the great outdoors. His book is Wild Curiosity: How to Unleash Creativity and Encourage Lifelong Wondering.
