To the Contrary with Bonnie Erbe

Episode #2119

Pregnant CEO: Yahoo's new CEO Marissa Mayer is not only one of only 20 Fortune 500 female CEO's, but also six months pregnant. Panelists debate whether working mothers really can have it all, or if 'having it all' is an outmoded concept.

Meghan McCain: We speak with the darling of moderate Republicans about whether she wants to go into politics.

Panelists: Women's Campaign Fund President Siobhan "Sam" Bennett; National Council of Negro Women Executive Director Avis Jones-DeWeever; Republican Commentator Mercy Viana Schlapp and Conservative Blogger Crystal Wright. [26 minutes] Closed Captioning
