Robert Siegel talks with political commentators E.J. Dionne of The Washington Post and the Brookings Institution, and Rich Lowry of the National Review, about the week in presidential politics, specifically the Republican CNN/YouTube debate, Dionne's correct prediction about the rise of Mike Huckabee, and Lowry's belief that the GOP must face the grim truth about its growing unpopularity. They'll also assess what it means that Barack Obama is picking up momentum on the Democratic side.
