Political pollster John Zogby joins us to talk all things Election 2016.  He says that Donald Trump, in his comments on abortion, actually retracted something in this campaign.  Zogby says, "He really has nothing to say of any substance."  Keeler asks about Zogby's prediction that Hillary Clinton would not ultimately be the Democratic nominee.  He also discusses the ultimate viability - or lack of sustainability - of the Tea Party.  Of the current GOP party situation Zogby says it is really a conundrum.  "A conundrum is worse than a dilemma...Door A and Door B are really no good."

On the phone from Pakistan is Father John Tanveer.  He witnessed this past weekend's Easter bombing in Pakistan for which a Taliban-inspired group has claimed responsibility.  He says that Pakistan is a very different country that it was before 1971.  He said that dissidents are hanged; so many Christians have died, so many people have been killed.  He heard the bang from the explosion and saw the smoke when he went outside of his house, which is close to a children's park.  He described seeing blood everywhere.  The main target, he says, is Christians.  He says that the greatest needs there are food, medicine, and education.

Father Tanveer says, "We are not safe and are trying our best always."
