趙小蘭獲得美國總統當選人川普選定為運輸部長，想知道她為什麼會雀屏中選，獲得川普的青睞嗎？家庭教育，相當關鍵喔！ 她是前美國勞工部長，也是美國內閣中首位亞裔女性，第一位華裔部長，更是小布希政府唯一八年任滿的內閣首長。 當部長期間她看到了中西文化的差別，一次布希總統會面中國代表團，原本只預計短暫會晤便離開，但趙小蘭當時就勸他應該留下來，跟代表團每個人握手、拍照，因此布希總統跟所有人握手合影後才離開。 趙小蘭說，美國其實很有誠意想瞭解亞洲，但文化的差異與禮節上的不同，可能會在過程中造成誤會，趙小蘭扮演的不僅僅是勞工部長，甚至可以說是肩負促進跨文化的互相了解任務。 對於中美文化差異，趙小蘭這樣說，"Chinese way of thinking is that you have to give context......American culture is very transactional! " 不只文化差異，在教育觀念也有很大的不同，趙小蘭受訪時說，「中國人強調強化弱點，如果發現自己哪裡弱，就想辦法進步改進，但美國人不在乎弱點，他們會說，我數學不好沒關係，但是我喜歡歷史，所以將心力全投注在歷史上，歷史就非常強。」非常值得人深思的兩段話！ 【一步一腳印】 主持人： 詹怡宜 TVBS新聞台 55台 每週 22:00首播 【 全球進行式】 主持人：廖芳潔 TVBS新聞台 56台 每週六 19:00首播 【 當掌聲響起】 主持人：秦綾謙 TVBS新聞台 55台 隔週六 20:00首播 【中國進行式】 主持人：莊開文 TVBS新聞台 56台 每週日 19:00首播 【TVBS 看板人物】 主持人： 方念華 TVBS新聞台 56台 每週日 20:00首播 【 世界翻轉中】 主持人： 古彩彥 TVBS新聞台 55台 隔週日 20:00首播 【 T觀點】 主持人：夏嘉璐 TVBS新聞台 56台 每週日22:00首播

3/15/13 - Last month, the super PAC Progress Kentucky took its opposition to Sen. Mitch McConnell's re-election one step further by bringing the senator's Asian-American wife, former Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao into the picture, remarking, "May explain why your job moved to China!" In a recent ad, she pushed back against the attack — and took to Fox & Friends on Friday to respond. The remark in question came via a tweet by the super PAC, which read, "This woman has the ear of [Sen. McConnell]—she's his wife. May explain why your job moved to China!" This drew much criticism, and in a recent ad Chao decried "far-left special interests" for attacking her ethnicity and questioning McConnell's patriotism, noting that's "how low some people will stoop." During the Fox segment, co-host Steve Doocy asked Chao to respond to the "racist" tweet. "This is just the most recent example of this kind of behavior," Chao said. "There's a pattern to this kind of attack. Basically, Mitch's opponents, his left-wing opponents, can't defeat him on policy issues, and so they resort to racial slurs and questioning his patriotism because he's married to me." Doocy was "astounded" by the lack of outrage of the remark, adding that, "If this were a Republican who made that sort of comment, it would be a great big story in The New York Times and everything else." To that end, he asked whether the super PAC's apology (they're committed to making sure it never happens again) was enough. It's not a matter of just one volunteer leaving, Chao asserted, reiterating her point that the incident is representative of a pattern of attacks. "Kentucky is a conservative state, and Mitch, again, does a wonderful job representing his constituents," she added. "He's the most conservative Senate leader in history." "They question his patriotism because he's married to me," Chao said. "I think that's pretty sad."

This event, says Mansfield, “turned out to be a lesson in politics. You were learning from people actually in politics about the issue: What’s the relationship between law and politics?” Beginning from the arguments of Senate Democrats and Republicans, Mansfield explains how the hearings captured the opinions of each party about the proper relationship of politics and law. Mansfield and Kristol also discuss how Aristotle’s reflection on the limits of politics and law might inform our own understanding of politics, law, and the Constitution.
