    PBS NewsHour [#10928] POLARIZATION OF CONGRESS - If yesterday's primary elections in Nebraska and West Virginia are any indication, the rifts in Congress may soon be growing wider, as Tea Party-backed candidate Ben Sasse looks poised to assume the Senate seat vacated by the more moderate Republican Mike Johanns, who is retiring. In West Virginia, Rep. Shelly Moore Capito won the GOP primary and is favored to win the seat in the fall. Gwen Ifill sits down with NewsHour political editor Domenico Montanaro to talk about the latest primaries.
    BILL CLINTON - Coming off his appearance at the Peterson Foundation Fiscal Summit this morning, Gwen Ifill sat down with former President Bill Clinton to talk about growth, inequality, and what's next for the American economy. Tonight, we present her interview with Clinton.
    SENIORS & COLLEGE - Many Americans have nostalgic feelings towards the universities and colleges they attended. Now, some colleges are trying to revitalize those relationships by opening retirement communities for former students and others. As part of our "Taking Care" series, NewsHour Special Correspondent Spencer Michels reports on how some of our nation's seniors are starting to find comfort at their old alma maters.
    CHINA / VIETNAM - Tensions between China and Vietnam reached a fever pitch today, as thousands of protesters set fire to a number of factories in southern Vietnam in a demonstration against China's deployment of an oil rig into the shared waters of the South China Sea, an area both countries claim as sovereign territory. Judy Woodruff sits down with Kenneth Lieberthal, the former senior director for Asia on the National Security Council, and Commentary Magazine contributor Gordon Chang to discuss what these latest developments mean for relations between the two countries.
    ALL OUR NAMES - Tonight, we examine a new fictional take on love, war, and the struggle of finding personal identity through it all, as Jeffrey Brown sits down with Dinaw Mengestu to talk about his latest book "All Our Names."
