Monday Political Periscope: Libya, 2012, On The Ground Report From NH, And More
Libyan rebels claim to be in control of most of the war torn country’s capital and the international community is calling on Moammar Gadhafi to step down.But, the whereabouts of the longtime Libyan leader remain unknown. We’ll check in with Amb. Nicholas Burns, former U.S. Under Secretary of State and the former U.S. Ambassdor to NATO – who is now a professor of diplomacy and international politics at the John F. Kennedy School of Government. Then, we’ll raise our political periscope – as we do every Monday – and examine some of the political stories percolating locally and nationally. Republican State Sen. Robert Hedlund and Massachusetts Democratic Party chairman John Walsh are here to discuss everything from Bay State redistricting to the president’s post-Labor Day unemployment address. We’ll also be joined by WMUR political directorJames Pindell for an update on Mitt Romney’s swing through the Granite State this week and a look at what the infighting inside the New Hampshire Republican party is all about.
