When the dust settles in Syria, will the result be good for America? Will President Obama dare Republicans to vote down a jobs bill?

An expert on Russia and Syria says whether we know it or not, it might be best for the West, Israel and Russia if Bashar al-Assad remains in power.

And Bill Press talks with political science professor Larry Sabato.
