Rick Santorum dropped out of the race earlier this week, leaving Mitt Romney the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party. This morning Chris cataloged Mitt Romney's "extreme and/or horrible... policy commitments" and how Chris expects him to begin pivoting to the middle. Plus, guest Mark Bittman returned for more discussion about the latest developments in the world of food politics. And we talked about the national polarization machine in the wake of George Zimmerman's arrest for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Joining Chris were:
Michael Eric Dyson (@michaeledyson), MSNBC political analyst and professor at Georgetown University.
Mark Bittman (@bittman), food columnist at the The New York Times.
Kerry Picket (@kerrypicket), writer for the The Washington Times opinion page.
Amanda Terkel (@aterkel), managing editor and senior political reporter for politics at the The Huffington Post.
Gary Younge (@garyyounge), columnist for The Guardian and The Nation.
