This week on Need To Know, we’ve got red shoes on the ground as NBC’s George Weigel checks in from Rome to discuss the Conclave and the process to choose a new Pope. Then, Mona pummels those who don’t share her love of Hummel, the death of a tyrant (Mona’s must-read column on Chavez is here) and the ideals of the left that won’t die, the sequester fight, drones and the filibuster, and the surprising new Miss Israel.
