'Left, Right & Center': The Politics of Personality and Inequality

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists ask whether Syria can be solved and respond to a new study that finds it’s no harder to climb the economic ladder today than it was 20 years ago.

Additionally, Wendy Davis, the Texas state senator famous for her 11-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions, gets criticized for stretching her narrative. Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife plead not guilty to 14 corruption charges and Rachel Maddow lists his loot. Jon Stewart mocks Davos.

Finally, what would you like to hear in the State of the Union address Tuesday?

Rich Lowry of The National Review and Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation join Scheer and host Matt Miller.
