FROM THIS EPISODE

Hillary Clinton would be America's first woman president if she were elected. But she'd need the Democratic nomination to get there. We hear why she's considered unstoppable — two years before the first primary -- if she decides to run. Also, we update Ukraine's crackdown on political protests and why that divided country matters so much to the European Union and Russia.

Bloodshed in Ukraine 15 MIN, 50 SEC

It's been another day of bloody clashes between police and protesters in Kiev, Ukraine's capital city. President Viktor Yanukovych says opposition leaders are trying to seize power by force, requiring him to order a crackdown. In Paris, US Secretary of State John Kerry responded to today's developments by "talking about the possibility of sanctions or other steps with our friends in Europe and elsewhere in order to try to create the environment for compromise." So what's at stake for Russia, and what's expected from Vladimir Putin?

Hillary Clinton and Political 'Inevitability' 27 MIN, 22 SEC

Hillary Clinton was considered "inevitable" in 2008. Barack Obama proved that she wasn't, when she failed to secure the Democratic presidential nomination. Now she's "inevitable" for 2016. Are there second acts in American politics? We hear about potential challenges from the progressive wing of the party, and why many political pros think she's unstoppable anyway — if she decides to run.
