For a wider perspective on this bizarre presidential election year, here's my conversation with Katty Kay of BBC World News America. Among the questions I asked her:
Katty Kay is lead anchor of BBC World News America, which airs weekdays at 4pm CT on BBC America. She also co-authored, with Claire Shipman, the best-seller "The Confidence Code: The Science and Art of Self-Assurance -- What Women Should Know," which will come out in paperback later this year.
- How much time and money is spent on elections in England (prepare to be shocked!)
- Have there been candidates similar to Donald Trump in the UK or elsewhere in Europe?
- England had Margaret Thatcher, India had Indira Gandhi, Pakistan had Benazir Bhutto -- why hasn't the US had a female president yet?
- Are you surprised at the popularity of Bernie Sanders' message, which has never before gotten this much attention?
- What do you think will happen if the GOP wrests the nomination away from Trump?
- What happened when a British newspaper tried to directly influence an American election?
