NOW Today: Confronting the tough issues


While we’ve spent a lot of time talking about the 2012 horse race, we’re reminded today of some of the serious policy issues that are going on. Yesterday President Obama addressed pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC saying he would not tolerate a nuclear Iran.  The conference continues today and is a stark reminder of the volatility in the Middle East, the “loose talk of war” that has permeated the discussion, and the risks facing the U.S. given overseas instability.  We’ve got a panel with perspective to discuss those issues as well as tomorrow’s nominating contests in the context of some astounding national and local polling.
