  4. John Ashford, whom the KC Star once called a “political king-maker” will give his interpretation of the deep divisions between both parties’ bases and their new regimes.
  5. We’ll examine how social media and at least one candidate’s thoroughly unfiltered Twitter account will impact selection of the next leader of the free world.
  6. We’ll take a look at how big money and Citizens United is impacting the 2016 vote.
