Episode Summary

10.31.07 Broadcast
Attorney General-nominee Michael Mukasey's responses to questions on the constitutionality of torture tactics troubled some Democratic senators during his confirmation hearings and have slowed the next steps in his nomination. Two members of the Senate Judiciary panel discuss Mukasey's bid. The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday to stay an execution by lethal injection in Mississippi, the third such decision halting an execution ahead of a case that will test the constitutionality of lethal injections. The National Law Journal's Marcia Coyle discusses the implications for capital punishment policy. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., fielded tough criticism from other contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination on Tuesday in an MSNBC-hosted debate. Two political journalists provide insight on the shift in tone in the primary race. For the second time in two months, the Federal Reserve cut key interest rates Wednesday. A financial analyst describes what the Fed's decision may mean for the American economy.moreless
