Can Democracy Survive in Iraq?

Hosted by

This month's parliamentary elections have left Iraq politically divided between two strong leaders with similar goals but no desire to compromise. Can either one form a government before violence returns?  Will US troops be able to pull out on schedule? Also, President Obama signs the "fix it" on healthcare reform and student loans, and Republicans are up in arms because party money was spent at a Hollywood sex club.
