A 'Civilian Surge' in Afghanistan; Political Warfare in Sacramento

Hosted by

The next Speaker of the State Assembly will be a Latino from Los Angeles, but there's a major fight to determine which one.  Republicans are talking about "the ghost of Willie Brown."  Also, Cardinal Roger Mahony makes the case for illegal immigrants to buy government-sponsored health insurance. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, he President's escalation of force in Afghanistan will have a civilian component—although he's left it to others to explain the details. We'll hear about the hopes for success and the risks of failure.
