Coming up on Hardball… Even Newt’s baggage has baggage


Even Newt’s baggage has baggage! That’s Joan Walsh’s take on the Former House Speaker and his recent surge in the polls. She and David Corn are here to discuss how long Gingrich can stay in the top tier of this race.

Then—Yesterday we asked how many “oops” moments the GOP field to could take…and today, we’re asking whether it’s all hurting the Republican brand. Republican strategist John Feehery and Fmr. Gov. Ed Rendell (D-PA) will tackle this one.

Next up—More on the Penn State scandal with Daily Beast columnist and Friday Night Lights author Buzz Bissinger and NBC’s Michael Isikoff. Did the graduate assistant, Mike McQueary call police? Records at the time say no, but McQueary says yes in a new email. 

Plus—The GOP candidates have some tough talk on foreign policy, but when it comes time to walk the walk, what’s their strategy? And would it work? We’re asking Steve Clemons, Washington Editor-at-Large for The Atlantic, and Robin Wright, Senior Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center.
