Week In Review 
Week In Review 0217The buzz this week is more like a steady drone as the Republican presidential primary race has fallen into something of a lull. Even the once popular - and ubiquitous - presidential debates aren’t attracting candidates…to the point where Mitt Romney dropped out of an upcoming CNN debate forcing the network to cancel it. Romney of course is in a fight for his life as he tries to take the upcoming Michigan primary – where Rick Santorum is currently leading. Locally – the senate race is all about contraception and the 4th congressional race is all about Kennedy – we’ll take on those topics, plus get the panel's "thumbs up, thumbs down" on 'Lin'sanity, the return of Randy Moss and other people and items in the news this week.

Guests:
  Charles Chieppo, principal Chieppo Strategies
  Wendy Kaminer, social critic and attorney
  Barry Nolan, Boston magazine contributor
