Midmorning: The primary pileup and the art of medicine
Posted at 8:05 AM on May 9, 2007 by Bill Wareham
Crucial states like Florida, California and New York are almost certain to move primaries up, leading some to wonder whether we're in for a political version of a multi-car pileup. At 9 a.m., Kerri Miller and her guests discuss the squeeze of primaries, as well as the latest NPR poll which finds that issues like the war polarize voters. Kerri's guests include Mara Liasson, national political correspondent for NPR; Dennis Goldford, professor of politics at Drake University; and Susan MacManus, political science professor at the University of South Florida.
At 10 a.m., one doctor argues that the humanities are essential for teaching new doctors how to best perform their craft. Dr. Jon Hallberg is a professor at the University of Minnesota Medical School and family practice physician as well as a regular commentator on All Things Considered.
