Barack Obama: Liberal Success After All?

Hosted by

Nobel Prize winner and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has been knocking Barack Obama since the campaign of 2008. Now, Krugman’s written at length to call him “one of the most consequential” and even “successful presidents in American history.” But Obama’s approval ratings are falling fast, and Democrats regard him as a drag in next month’s elections. We’ll talk with Krugman and others about Obamacare, financial reform, Republican opposition and America’s role in foreign affairs.

Plus: an update on the Ebola crisis, and missing students, unidentified bodies and organized crime in Mexico.
