What's the magic number? The 3/4 Preview

Three may the magic number for De La Soul – but Mitt Romney needs a lot more delegates than that to get the Republican nomination for president. (Yeah, we’re starting your Sunday morning with math. Rest assured, Melissa will make math fun* on today’s show. Trust.)

Joining her in that effort? One of yesterday’s guests, political analyst Bill Schneider, returns to break down the delegates up for grabs this upcoming (Super) Tuesday. Also, former Santorum communications director Robert Traynham and Rutgers professor Jelani Cobb (who analyzed the start of President Obama’s first term in “The Substance of Hope”) will discuss the likelihood that there will be a second Obama term.

Before we carry the President’s speech today at AIPAC, we’ll break down Iran/Israel politics with Amaney Jamal, Princeton politics professor.

Oh, and did I mention that Melissa (and a couple of her students) will interview Newark Mayor Cory Booker? I didn’t? Now you know.

See you in #nerdland at 10am ET, folks. Don’t forget to interact with us on Twitter and Facebook before, during and after the show!

*A hint at how Melissa will make math fun, after the jump.
