Going for the Gold: Winter Olympics Kick Off Tonight

Hosted by

Tonight is the opening ceremony for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Despite the rain that's been falling, the games will go on. Who's set to bring home the gold? What's up with super-skier Lindsay Vonn, who suffered a recent injury, and what about snowboarder Shaun White? What athletes have the opportunity to redeem themselves after poor showings in the last games? Guest host Sara Terry ponders whether in Women's Luge, it could be the year for an American. Also, China protests the Dalai Lama's White House visit, and the State Board of Education in Texas may be writing history for the country.
