Rick Santorum, the latest GOP frontrunner, isn’t a fan of public schools, prenatal testing or environmentalism. How far can he go until he just seems too “out there?” msnbc Senior Political Analyst Mark Halperin and U.S. News & World Report’s Susan Milligan join us to talk about that tonight.


Next up: Mitt Romney was thought to have the GOP nomination in the bag, but now there’s talk of him losing Michigan, and talk of a brokered convention! Are his presidential prospects salvageable? We’re asking The New Republic’s Walter Shapiro and msnbc Political Analyst Michael Steele.


Then: Don’t underestimate the importance of the price of gas on the 2012 election. Prices at the pump are soaring these days. Why? And will they be going up or down come November? We’ll talk with Daniel Yergin, NBC Energy Analyst and author of The Quest, and Reuters Editor-at-Large Chrystia Freeland about the politics of gas prices.


Plus: It’s President’s Day, and we’re looking back on the Clinton Presidency with presidential historian Doug Brinkley and msnbc Political Analyst Eugene Robinson. Tune in!
