Jim DeMint served in the U.S. Senate from 2005-2013. The South Carolina Republican resigned to become head of the Heritage Foundation. During his years in Congress - which included three terms in the U.S. House of Representatives - DeMint was known as a staunch social and fiscal conservative. A Tea Party favorite, he also became known for his battles with more establishment Republicans. In a new book, DeMint argues that free enterprise, limited government and traditional values are not just conservative ideas. They reflect what America is all about.

Ukraine's prime minister is flying to Washington this week to meet with President Obama. Plans for the visit come as the White House warns that Russia will face increasing international pressure if it presses ahead with a referendum to annex Crimea. Some say U.S. and European sanctions, which would freeze the assets and visas of Russian officials, could be a blow to Russia's flagging economy. But others warn Moscow could retaliate by seizing American and European assets or cut exports of natural gas to Europe which heavily relies on Russia for energy. Guest host Susan Page and a panel of experts discuss the West's response to a power struggle between Russia and Ukraine.
