Tonight on the program, President Obama challenges Republicans to compromise on taxes or risk letting the country default on its debt. Also, we examine what last night's brazen attack on a Kabul hotel means for the security situation in Afghanistan, and our science team looks at ways to make science fun for kids. Finally, we have a book conversation on the impact of Vietnam on politics today.
