Left, Right & Center: 9/11 Trials, Afghanistan, Asia, Job Summit, Fort Hood

Posted: Updated:

Should the trial of the 9/11 masterminds even take place? Why, asks Tony, when we have confessions and a desire for execution? Bob suggests that there's a little something called the rule of law and we should definitely abide by it, using it as an example of what's right about truth, justice and the American Way. Tony sees it as a left vs. right issue, Bob disagrees.

What will Obama do in Afghanistan? Tony says if he doesn't think we should fight this war, he shouldn't be bullied into sending troops. He and Matt are troubled by the whole deliberative procedure, while Bob says most wars have taken place under the aegis of Democratic presidents.

Without jobs, can Democrats win the next round of elections? And a second look at the Fort Hood massacre.
