Obama Drills for Consensus on Energy

Hosted by

The President says his offshore oil-and-gas proposal is designed to "break out of the broken policies of the past," but he's set off a familiar debate over energy needs and environmental protection. Will it lead to another stalemate or a breakthrough on global warming — in an election year? Also, Afghan President Hamid Karzai weaves an international conspiracy theory, and today's the deadline for census forms.  We hear why places hardest hit by the Great Recession will lose the most if they're not fully counted.
