Jay Nordlinger is a senior editor of National Review and music critic of The New Criterion. His podcasts are Q&A and Music for a While.
Jay’s guest today is Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the congresswoman from Miami, born in Cuba. Naturally, she and Jay talk about an issue of the hour: the United States, led by Obama, and Cuba, led by a Castro (as since 1959). But they also talk about the main issue of the hour: Iran and the Bomb. They further talk about Jeb ’n’ Marco. Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen has known them both and represented them both for many years. (They are her constituents.) She also loves them both. But she has endorsed one of them (Jeb).
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is one of the most extraordinary people in Congress: petite and feminine, sparkling and kind — but tough as nails, especially on America’s enemies. Get to know her, if you don’t already, in this half-hour with Jay.More
