The president argues the case not for war but for the peace of a post-war world. We examine the argument with Alexis Simendinger of the National Journal. The economy is held hostage to the possibility of war; will everything be coming up roses in the aftermath of a war with Iraq? Jeff Birnbaum of Fortune magazine has that story. The senate is in the third week of a filibuster over the nomination of Miguel Estrada to the federal appeals court in Washington. Janet Hook of the Los Angeles Times takes a look at the filibuster playbook and who is up to what. Labor holds the first in a series of meetings to determine which of the democratic candidates, if any, will get their endorsement. And in turn, the democratic candidates are trying to make the cut. John Harwood of the Wall Street Journal reports. [24 minutes]
