David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times, joins Kerry Nolan to discuss continuing protests in the Middle East region. Bahrain has gone from shooting protesters to negotiations in a week and in Libya, the protests have become violent. In the meantime, what is the United States learning about past transitions to democracy? Sanger also weighs in on the U.S. budget. It's on the chopping block and there is potential for a government shut down.
