This was a huge week politically as Florida’s former governor, Charlie Crist, sets up to get his old job back.  Now a Democrat, Crist attacked his Republican successor Rick Scott at a U.S. Senate hearing on voting rights.  Both governors had some flip-flops as they remake themselves for the 2014: Crist on gun rights and Scott on election laws

And how would falling off "the cliff" affect our part of the world?

Host Phil Latzman speaks with panelists Michael Grunwald of Time Magazine and Mary Ellen Klas and Juan Vasquez of the Miami Herald.
