Today on the show: We'll take a look at the competing policy proposals of Pres. Obama and his would-be Republican contenders.  We'll look at the women of 2012 (who are they and who is calling the shots).  Gov. Jack Markell (D-DE) will join us literally straight after meeting with the President and other governors assembled in Washington for a meeting of the National Governors Association.  And during the show, Mitt Romney will try to fill Ford Field in Detroit to unveil his economic plan.  Only problem: He did that Tuesday. read more

Your debate primer: Immigration.It's a topic we haven't heard much about in the last couple of weeks. But not tonight. The remaining 4 GOP contenders are in Arizona, and it's sure to come up in this latest debate.  Rick Santorum spent part of this week playing up his immigrant roots... minutes after meeting with Joe Arpaio, the controversial Sheriff known for targeting and arresting Latinos, he believes are illegals. read more
