President Obama's Ambitious Agenda Takes Off

On this week's Reporters' Roundtable, President Obama laid out the country's challenges to Congress, put banks under a stress test and unveiled his budget and healthcare plans.

Also, several top Senate Democrats expressed concerns over Obama's plan to keep as many as 50,000 troops in Iraq.

Joining Tony Cox to discuss these topics are Charisse Jones, a National Correspondent for USA Today, and Erin Aubry Kaplan, a freelance writer and a contributing editor to the Opinion Page of the LA Times.
