David Sanger, chief Washington correspondent for The New York Times, joins Kerry Nolan to discuss the future of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh's grip on power, the Obama administration on Iran and the Middle East uprisings, and what role the economy will play in President Obama's re-election campaign.

Sanger says that the United States has signaled a shift in its relations with the Yemeni government and is making moves to ease President Saleh from power. He also says that the Obama administration's decisions on when and where to intervene in the Middle East often revolve around Iran. Finally, when it comes to President Obama's re-election campaign, Sanger says the economy will play a serious role.
