Today on the show: A host of issues.
We'll start with a look at our position in the world. Our starting question - has the Obama team cracked the code to diplomacy? From there we'll look at gay rights, which seem to have come to a forefront with the resignation of Romney aide Richard Grenell. (This could get worse before it goes away). Author Steve Coll will join to talk about his new book, "Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power." He's got a pretty scathing assessment of the world's largest oil firm, and you'll be fascinated to learn the truth behind its operation. And then, finally, a look at the death of Junior Seau - it begs a discussion we're ready to have, today, at noon ET.
