A Columbia University expert on the Middle East says if Romney had won the election, it would have meant “a green light for war” on Iran. Now, he says, sanctions will have a chance to work. Author Phil Longman has an idea – give every American at birth a federal savings account that the parents and the child would contribute to for a lifetime. And with everyone talking about the Lincoln movie, presidential historian Leon Billings reviews the best presidential libraries, recommending a stop in Springfield, Illinois.
