Senator Barack Obama is edging closer to winning the democratic nomination for President. But how will he fare in Novemberâ€™s general election? Ray talks with University Hartford political science professor Darryl McMiller.
Plus, the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar is still recovering from a devastating cyclone that rocked that countryâ€™s Irrawaddy delta earlier this month. The United Nations believes the death toll could reach over 100,000.
Recovery and relief operations have been hampered by that countryâ€™s military government. Myanmarâ€™s junta has denied some relief workers and experts access to the areas hardest hit by the cyclone, and there are widespread reports that the military has been hijacking food and water intended for the victims of Cyclone Nargis.
One of the relief agencies that has been able to give aid to cyclone victims is Westport, Connecticut based Save the Children. JoiningÂ Ray by phone from Myanmar is Save the Childrenâ€™s Scott McGill. He is the Asia Regional HIV/AIDS Adviser for Save the Children, and just moved to the Myanmar office this winter.
