Deutschlandfunk Interviews ASL about Presidential Primaries

German Public Radio (Deutschlandfunk) interviewed ASL live on 3 January 2008 for the morning news program and the reports on the primary elections taking place in Iowa, New Hampshire, and beyond. Questions included the importance of early primaries and caucuses for setting the tone and course of the presidential election, which candidates had the best chances, what a Democratic president could mean for international politics, and how the Republican party was trying to improve its chances for re-winning the White House. Crister Garrett replied to the questions by noting the potential importance of early caucuses and primaries for fund-raising and media exposure, that a Democratic president would also be very comfortable talking about national interests, and that the Republican party is arguably more divided today than in the last 25 years.
