After months of one of the most intense presidential campaigns in recent history, voters will decide whether to give President George W. Bush another four years in the White House, or to send him packing back to Texas. On this edition we take a look at an international mission to observe the U.S. elections. We look at the impacts of a decade-long Republican-controlled Congress. And we’ll hear about an effort in the hip hop movement to persuade young voters to go to the polls.
