Leading Ladies of Washington
Celebrity biographer Susan Page joins us to discuss her two recent books ... and the very different women who are pictured on the covers. In "The Matriarch," Page takes us inside the life of former First Lady Barbara Bush. In "Madam Speaker," we meet House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Different may they be, both changed the face of Washington.
