ERWIN CHEMERINSKY, Dean of the Law School at UC Irvine,will comment on Obama’s pick of Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court. He calls her “a superb choice.”
Also: After the State Supreme Court’s Prop 8 ruling: Is 2010 “too soon” for another gay marriage initiative campaign? Or could a grassroots organizing effort accomplish what the “No on 8” campaign failed to do? RICK JACOBS will comment – he’s founder and chair of the Courage Campaign, and he says “It’s time to go on offense. To be fearless in our fight for equality. Starting right now.”
The war on terror is un-winnable: That’s what REZA ASLAN says. Instead of claiming that Al Qaeda and the Taliban represent “evil,” he argues, the US should address the underlying social and political roots of conflict and terror — and also look at the traditions of religious violence found in Judaism and Christianity.
Reza’s new book is HOW TO WIN A COSMIC WAR: God, Globalization, and the End of the War on Terror.
