Shields, Brooks on Presidential Effects on Gas Prices, March Madness Mascots

Tonight we tackle a topic that has been bandied about for weeks as citizens across the U.S. face sticker shock at one gas pump after another. Syndicated columnist Mark Shields and New York Times columnist David Brooks weigh in on how much the president can really help lower gas prices.

We also jump into the March Madness. My bracket is here. David Brooks’ bracket is here. Mark Shields chickened out this year, but did mention a different type of bracket that weighs your ability to pick long shots more than the overall winner, and you learn about his favorite college mascot.

Have a great weekend.
