Shrum-Cooke debate the two Americas that emerge from the news – Obama’s bullish SOTU vs. GOP debaters acting like the bear in Revenant. Cooke thinks the Republicans were simply acting as the out-party while Bob sees their fury as hysterical and hurtful to their cause.

IF – a big if – Sanders wins both Iowa & NH, could Dems consider a 3d candidate? “Biden” speculates Shrum.
