Bush who said that “Al cares just as much as I care about making sure every child learns to read, write, add and subtract.”

Sharpton is currently the only African-American host of an evening talk show called “PoliticsNation” on MSNBC that analyzes the top political and social news of the day featuring the country’s leading newsmakers.
