Tonight, the Indiana and North Carolina primaries are just days away. We’re on the trail with both candidates as they vie for the 218 delegates that are up for grabs. And the presumptive Republican nominee was in Colorado where he said "My friends, I will have an energy policy that we will be talking about, which will eliminate our dependence on oil from the Middle East that will - that will then prevent us - that will prevent us from having ever to send our young men and women into conflict again in the Middle East.” What did he mean by that? And how could it play out in the election?
There’s a video floating around the internet that we’re going to take a look at. It’s a scene from "The War Room," the documentary of Bill Clinton's 1992 presidential campaign. The clip in question shows then Clinton campaign manager and current Hillary Clinton adviser Mickey Kantor uttering what sounds like a derogatory term for the people of Indiana. We don't know who released this tape but we do know that it's not true. We’ll take a look at other hit jobs like this and the impact they have on campaigns.
And we’re tracking severe weather in Arkansas. At least seven people were killed and at least 13 people were injured by what may have been a tornado.
Be sure to check out our new live web camera from the 360° studio. Tonight the shot will show Anderson behind the scenes on the set. We’ll turn the camera on at 945p ET and turn it off at 11p ET. LINK TO THE BLOG CAMERA
We’ll start posting comments to this blog at 10p ET and stop at 11p ET.

kk, nite all, it has been wonderful.
im so glad tom cruise didnt jump again! lol
Have a great weekend everyone and hope we get a break from Rev. Wright!
The school sounds like it subscribes to feminist pedagogy which says kids learn best when they feel validated and their words are heard. It's more collaborative in nature. I spent a semester in my doctoral program playing with this in an independent study. I'll buy that, but not that African American kids learn differently because of brain structure.
Good night Anderson and Gary! Have a great weekend!
There are many cultural differences that do affect children's styles of learning. I don't think this is anything new or controversial. That is also why standardized tests have been scrutinized in the past – as they are created from an understanding of white culture. These differences do matter and that's why some changes have been made since then..
Ok, so where did Rev. Wright get this right brain garbage from anyways? Thanks for giving us the facts. It was very interesting.
Really nice show as usual! Have a great weekend, Anderson, Erica, and all!
I still think that learning has a lot to do with parental involvement and enviornment. We need to work with our children.
Well sounds like Wright is batting .000
learning among color is not a product of the brain, perhaps it is a product of experience. What would Jeremiah Wright say about mixed amerians, asians, or latinos. I think it is EXTREMELY ignorant to pit someones abilities in one group based on color, AND THEN to say America is set up to only cater to whites.
Smaller class size also makes a huge difference. There is more interaction with the teacher, and students are able to get more help.
I think right brain, left brain people learn differently. All races have right, left sided people. So race alone seems suspect.
Culture base or economic base really? It's a vicious cycle without education they can't get ahead but without some economic reforms they can't get education. In poorer homes, what's the priority books or food?
no no no no! Race does not have anything to do with the way a child learns. That is just crazy...black and whites, green and purple people...we all learn things the same way!

Is this really the right time to discuss Rev. Wright's learning theories AC, any mention of this man is bad for Obama in my view.
What black children is she talking about? Not all black students are like that! It is about the individual child.
Tracy...............Rev Wright was relying on old research..but I will tell you this as a teacher..... There is such a thing as an auditory modality.......it has to do with your hearing... how your brain precieves what you hear..not that you cant hear......... African Americans auditory modalities are more in tune to a certian beat (s) but then again some white people possess the same beat .... Rev Wrights analogy was correct when he spoke about beats...ie the different marching bands...
I don't think it matters what race you are in determining how one learns.....I am a white woman who is right-brained (according to my facebook quiz anyways :P). It is just how I learn but I don't think it has anything to do with my race
I don't think race has anything to do with how you learn!
Oh, I'm so glad you're doing this story! I was going to do some research...
and I just adore Soledad 🙂
i know that there are left brain and right brain people, but I've never heard that race is a factor in that.
How many of you at the age of 27-28 didn't have a your own ideas of the world and society and believes? That was the age Sen. Obama was when he first started going to Rev. Wright's church. So you really believe that he believes the rubish that Rev. Wright spews. Read his book or reseach it for yourself.
How is this a story, since when is Wright a developmental psychologist. Why does his opinion need to be "Kept Honest".
It takes a special person to be a President.
Jeremiah Wright and Tom Cruise in the same program? HUH?
Me too, Genevieve M.
I like biography of candidates. I agree.
