Burma’s Next President, “Arab-American” documentary, and Political Instability in Brazil

Though Suu Kyi is the overwhelming favorite to become president of Burma, there are constitutional snags to her taking office, including being a woman and the ethnicity of her husband and children. We take a closer look. And filmmaker Usama Alshaibi joins us to talk about his latest documentary, “American Arab," and what it means to be Muslim in America. Plus, we talk about some of the cultural and societal intricacies of Brazilian electoral politics with Ruth Needleman, professor emerita of Labor Studies at Indiana University.
