The radical Republican war on women continues as a vote on contraception approaches.  Katrina Vanden Heuvel, Editor and Publisher of The Nation joins Ed for reaction and analysis.

Rick Santorum is now up nine points in Michigan.  And Mitt Romney tries to patch things up with Detroit.  Bob Shrum, Democratic Strategist, has the latest on the race.

And why didn’t anybody see Jeremy Lin coming?  Now even the president has caught “Linsanity.”   We’ll find out what’s behind the buzz with director and super-Knick fan Spike Lee and William C. Rhoden, Columnist for The New York Times.
