A Hagel Filibuster, SOTU, Pope and North Korea

Hosted by and

Senate Republicans filibuster their colleague Chuck Hagel. They claim they want more time and information. Will Obama's choice for Defense Secretary get a vote? The President channels his inner FDR during the State of the Union and proposes solutions for the redistribution of income like preschool and raising the minimum wage. He ignored the budget and long-term debt. Can we afford any of his proposals? Another North Korean nuclear test has the security establishment very worried. The President and others support a "Path to Zero," but don't have much agreement how to get there. The Pope steps down citing his age and health, during a tumultuous era in Catholic history. What is his legacy?

Joining us today is former Minnesota Congressman and Republican strategist, Vin Weber.
