Your Call 013108 Is there a Pacific Rim Community?

Is there a Pacific Rim Community? On the next Your Call we replay a show we recorded Tuesday launching a new series creating connections across the ocean. First up, Australia. For the first time in 11 years, conservatives are out of power in Australia. Tuesday night we spoke with a panel of journalists about the issues, challenges and aspirations that influence Australian politics. New Prime Minister Kevin Rudd repudiates Australias involvement in the Iraq war but promises continued close ties to the US. Are closer ties between the two sides of the Pacific in the cards? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
