President Barack Obama's announcement that the last American soldiers would leave Iraq by the end of this year capped a momentous week in which he could also take credit for helping dispatch Colonel Moammar Gadhafi. On this rebroadcast of today's To the Point, guest host Terrence McNally explores what this will mean in next year's elections. Also, Los Angeles County's troubled Probation Department gets a new chief, and a new study headed by a former skeptic offers confirmation of global climate change.
