When it comes to politics we often take one side or the other and miss the neutral observation of what is really happening.  This is why we look to the folks at TheHill.com to offer a non-biased look at the political realm.  Each week their top reporter, Niall Stange, sits down with Jon to go over the lates from Capital Hill and beyond.  This week Niall delves deeper into the presidential election process and gives us insight on Donald Trumps latest antics, while keeping us apprised of the rest of the candidates.  He also shares with us his thoughts on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
