War and Peace - and the Israeli Election

Hosted by

President Obama wants to revive the peace process between Israel and the Palestinians, but Israel's new government may not go along. That's if predictions about tomorrow's elections turn out to be true. We hear about the mood of the people, what the candidates are saying and what the results might mean for the Middle East and American policy. Also, Obama's stimulus plan and Republican opposition to it. Is it driving a wedge between a popular new president and his colleagues in Congress?
