We’ll hear from Richard Wolffe, Executive Editor, msnbc.com, msnbc Political Analyst, Alex Wagner, Host of msnbc’s “NOW with Alex Wagner,” and Jonathan Alter, msnbc Political Analyst and Bloomberg View Columnist.

And in the BIG Finish, Sen. Ted Cruz brings back Mitt Romney’s worst nightmare: the 47 percent. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) tells us why Cruz has no right to use those words.
