Political Update

Hillary Clinton loses the North Carolina primary to Barack Obama by a wide margin and barely hangs on to Indiana. We speak with Mark Halperin, editor-at-large and senior political analyst at Time, and political analyst for ABC News.

Foster Care

What information should states have to reveal about children who die or nearly die as a result of abuse? Child welfare advocates say a majority of states fail to release adequate information.

Russian Presidency

Dmitry Medvedev was inaugurated as Russia's new president today in the grand Kremlin Palace in Moscow. He succeeds Vladimir Putin, who will become prime minister. We speak to Edward Lucas, Central and Eastern European Correspondent for The Economist.

"Here and Now"

We speak with filmmaker, Irene Taylor Brodsky, whose film "Hear and Now" premieres on HBO this week. Irene's parents, Paul and Sally Taylor, who were both born deaf, decided at the age of 65 to get cochlear implants to help them hear. Her film is an intimate, often painful look at their lives before, during, and after the surgery.

This program aired on May 7, 2008.
