Do Hampden Councilors have a right to sit out the Pledge of Allegiance?

Political Analysts Ethan Strimling and Phil Harriman discuss the controversy in Hampden surrounding a youtube video depicting two Hampden Town Councilors/Veterans refusing to stand up for the pledge of allegiance during Council Meetings. Do they have the right? How will it play out politically?

Phil & Ethan also discuss a bill before the legislature that would require state legislative approval before a national park can be situated in Northern Maine. More bureaucracy, legitimate concern, or simply political posturing?

We also get their thoughts on key senate races in Bangor, Ellsworth, and Presque Isle, and the Republican primary in Piscataquis County between State Sen. Doug Thomas and State Rep. Paul Davis.

Finally, they give their predictions on whether the Red Sox will repeat and whether the Mets will come in last. All this and more by clicking below.
