The GOP Debate and the Republican Party Agenda

Hosted by

In his first debate with other Republican hopefuls, Rick Perry got right into the mix, dominating today's news coverage along with Mitt Romney. The next debate is scheduled for Monday. But, aside from the horse race, what is the Republican agenda beginning to look like? Do these very conservative candidates agree more than they disagree on major issues? Are they driven by ideology? What's the role of special interests? We hear excerpts from last night and get different opinions on what's in store for the party, President Obama and the country as a whole.
