Today's Junkie Segment On TOTN: Boxer And Fiorina, Live From California

We're at member station KQED today for the Political Junkie segment on Talk of the Nation, and we will be joined, separately, by Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat seeking her fourth term, and GOP challenger Carly Fiorina, the former head of Hewlett Packard.

Boxer is seen as one of the more endangered Senate Democrats; most polls show her with a slight lead.

Also, with less than a month to go before the midterm elections, a look at where things stand nationally, with special emphasis on the Battle for the Senate.

Plus:  Meg Whitman and the fallout from "Nannygate."  Christine O'Donnell says she is not a witch.  The Senate candidates debate in Connecticut.  And Donald Trump hints that he is considering 2012 ... if nothing else, he could become Rod Blagojevich's hair apparent.

Join host Neal Conan and me every Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET for the Junkie segment on TOTN, where you can often, but not always, find interesting conversation, useless trivia questions and sparkling jokes. And you can win a Political Junkie T-shirt!

If your local NPR station doesn't carry TOTN, you can always hear the program on the Web or on HD Radio. And if you are a subscriber to XM/Sirius radio, you can find the show there as well (siriusly).
