Lucas Baiano, a filmmaker who grabbed the spotlight 4 years ago with his "movie" supporting Hillary Clinton for President. His videos are slick, highly-produced pieces of entertainment: music that builds, dizzying-special effects. And he's 23.After his Clinton movie, he was picked up by the Tim Pawlenty campaign, leading Stephen Colbert to say, “Wow! Tim Pawlenty may not be running for president of the United States, but he is clearly running for president of the next 'Transformers' movie.”He didn't do much for Pawlenty in the polls... but he's still a sought after creator. read more

Given his margin, it's improbable Newt Gingrich can pull off an upset.  But most political analysts agree that the GOP contest doesn't end in Florida, and will continue through at least Super Tuesday.  Meanwhile, the Obama 2012 campaign awaits it's opponents.  Will the long haul primary seal the President's re-election?  We'll pose those questions and more to the panel.Plus, two great guests: Rep. read more
