THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, November the 12th - part 2

After voters back home, Barack Obama’s now lost his lustre abroad, failing to woo his counterparts at the G-20 summit in Seoul. Also, a folksy George W. Bush times his return to coincide with the Democrats’ thumping in the midterm elections, Ireland’s troubles and why Iraq’s violent, fractious, and drawn-out manner of choosing a new government may have a bright side. Joining François Picard in The World This Week are Eric Pfanner, Christopher Dickey, Judah Grunstein and Dave Clarke.

Our guests:

  • Eric PFANNER, Reporter, International Herald Tribune
  • David CLARK, Paris Deputy Bureau Chief, AFP
  • Christopher DICKEY, Paris Bureau Chief and Middle East Regional Editor, Newsweek
  • Judah GRUNSTEIN, Managing Editor, World Politics review
