Monday Political Periscope
The field of prospective Republican presidential candidates came into sharper focus this weekend. But between Iowa straw poll winner Rep. Michele Bachmann, Gov. Rick Perry, Mitt Romney and dark horse Rep. Ron Paul – does the GOP have a candidate capable of unseating President Barack Obama? We’ll peer through our political periscope for a look at the issues percolating from Beacon Hill to Capital Hill this week. Former Massachusetts Congressman Peter Blute and Boston Globe columnist Joan Vennochi join us. We’ll also check in with Kathie Obradovich, a political columnist at The Des Moines Register.
