American Populism: 21st Century Style

Hosted by

Some AIG executives have given their bonuses back, but the fires of populist anger have already been lit.  Can Republicans credibly lead the charge against Wall Street?  Will leftists turn on the Democrat in the White House?  Can public outrage be harnessed to help fix the economy? Also, Geithner and Bernanke up against hostile questioning on Capitol Hill, and the codes used by police dispatchers have been staples of TV shows and movies, but they're being replaced all over the country. We get the story from Dallas.
