Need to Know with Mona Charen and Jay Nordlinger All Worked Up

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.
