In the Crossfire: Can Washington learn from the states?

Is the cure for Washington gridlock outside of Washington? We have two governors in the Crossfire to weigh in on what Washington can learn from states.

Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) and Gov. Jack Markell (D-DE) join Newt Gingrich and guest host former Governor Brian Schweitzer (D-MT).

We want you to weigh in. Does the GOP have a better chance of winning the presidency in 2016 if it nominates a Governor?

In the Crossfire: The nuclear option

The Senate has gone nuclear. Senate Democrats have taken drastic action by changing the rules of the legislative body, enabling judicial and executive nominees to be confirmed with just 51 votes instead of 60.

Is the "nuclear option" good for either party, or the country?

In the Crossfire: two members of that body, Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and John Hoeven (R-ND).

They'll join hosts Newt Gingrich and Stephanie Cutter to debate the dysfunction in Washington.
