On Air America today from noon-3 EDT

We have a great show lined up for you today, so I hope you'll listen live at www.airamerica.com/listen, and call in at 866-303-2270.

In the first hour, as I've been threatening to do, we'll deal with the issue of the role of money in elections, and how to fix it!  Campaign Finance Reform is, in my opinion, the most important issue of the day!  I'll speak with Dan Weeks  President, Americans for Campaign Reform.  Find them at www.youstreet.org.

In hour two, we'll look back at President Obama's Excellent European Adventure with Beth Arnold, an American living in Paris.  She's a journalist whose work you can read on Huffington Post, Salon.com and numerous other places, including  www.BethArnold.com.

In the third hour of today's show, one of my favorite guests who always keeps us on our toes, activist and author David Swanson.  We'll talk about issues we should all be concerned with, including the status of the effort to hold Bush/Cheney et al accountable for their crimes, and take a critical look at the Obama presidency.  

David Swanson is the author of the upcoming book "Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union" and of the introduction to "The 35 Articles of Impeachment and the Case for Prosecuting George W. Bush."  He is co-founder of AfterDowningStreet.org, creator of ProsecuteBushCheney.org and Washington Director of Democrats.com, a board member of Progressive Democrats of America, the Backbone Campaign, and Voters for Peace, a convenor of the legislative working group of United for Peace and Justice, and chair of the accountability and prosecution working group of United for Peace and Justice.  In his spare time, he also blogs at davidswanson.org.

And of course, we'll take a look at some of the other stories of the day.

Again, listen live at
