Mardi Gras and the Future of New Orleans

Hosted by

Today's Mardi Gras will provide a new measure of New Orleans' recovery 18 months after Katrina.  Are the tourists returning despite increased crime?  Why do permanent residents have such a hard time deciding whether to stay or go?  Also, Mike McConnell is sworn in as Director of National Intelligence and, on Reporter's Notebook, are the Libby trial and the nuclear deal with North Korea signs that Vice President Dick Cheney may be losing influence?
