The terrorist attacks in Paris last week have been reverberating in U.S. presidential politics.

Leading Republican Donald Trump suggested shutting American mosques and making Muslims register in a national database. Rival Ben Carson likened concerns about Syrian refugees coming to the U.S. to parental concerns about a mad dog running around in their children's neighborhood.

Leading Democrat Hillary Clinton promised to defeat and not just "contain" ISIS. Her main rival Bernie Sanders drew on the legacy of wartime President Franklin D. Roosevelt to explain his democratic socialism.

Rick Klein of ABC News and Rebecca Sinderbrand of The Washington Post join Here & Now's Indira Lakshmanan and Jeremy Hobson to discuss this and more in our weekly look at the race for 2016.

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders also weighed in this week on the threat of ISIS and concerns about resettling Syrian refugees. (Adam Bettcher/Getty Images)
