#GOPDebate Pt. Deux, Pope-splaining, And Bernie Visits The Land Of Liberty!

This week, the 278 candidates vying for the Republican nomination gathered in the seamiest of valleys to debate one another. Or, sorry, deal with Donald Trump. New York Times magazine's Ana Marie Cox joins us for some debate post-game analysis. Meanwhile, Washington DC is bracing for a visit from Pope Francis, coming to America at a time in which his message about income inequality is resonating -- especially among liberals. The Washington Examiner's Tim Carney helps us get jesuitical. Finally, speaking of odd intersections of politics and religion, presidential aspirant Sen. Bernie Sanders (I - Vt) brought his very liberal campaign the evangelical college Liberty University. Was Sanders preaching to the unconvertible, or was there an real opportunity for connection? Fusion's news director Kevin Roose helps explain the significance of this event.
