US President Barack Obama made a forceful speech on Wednesday evening, laying out his plan to deal with the threat of militant group ‘Islamic State’. But on top of other foreign crises in Ukraine and Gaza, he is also fighting fires on the domestic front with mid-term elections drawing near. Joining Sean in studio to discuss this crunch time for Obama and the Democrats is Dr Graham Finlay, from the UCD School of Politics and International Relations. But first we got the story from Washington, with Fred Barbash of the Washington Post.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0912/643196-today-with-sean-o-rourke-friday-12-september-2014/?clipid=1672237
As many of us prepare for our summer holidays, packing, planning, counting the days - we might ask ourselves a simple question, why do we travel?

Hillary Clinton launched her memoir, Hard Choices, this week in what appears to be traditional fashion for someone about to embark on a US Presidential campaign. Sean was joined by Graham Finlay of the School of International Relations in UCD.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0612/623297-today-with-sean-o-rourke-thursday-12-june-2014/?clipid=1598787
In true American tradition the American Presidential election is getting dirty good and early. Attempting to get a dig in before Hillary Clinton has even confirmed her candidacy for the primaries, former Republican election strategist Karl Rove questioned in the New York Post whether she may have brain damage and he hasn’t taken it back either. Sean was joined by Graham Finlay of the School of International Relations in UCD and by Niall O’Dowd in New York.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0521/618672-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-21-may-2014/?clipid=1580998
Tomorrow night President Barack Obama will stand in front of Congress and give his State of the Union address. As candidates for his successor are already being bandied about, this one will probably not have the power or promise or hope of his first speech in 2008, but no doubt it’ll have much to keep people interested. Sean was joined by Graham Finlay of the School of Politics and International Relations in UCD.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0127/500379-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-27-january-2014/?clipid=1403367
