President Obama and the Effort to Find Common Ground

Hosted by

It's reported today that -- before Iran's disputed election — the Obama Administration sent a letter to the Supreme Leader proposing “cooperation in regional and bilateral relations.” Today, we talk about the President's pattern of seeing “common ground” with his adversaries. Also, more bloodshed on the streets of Tehran, and South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford explains why he left the state without telling anyone else.
