The new movie about President Abraham Lincoln has raised a lot of interest about Lincoln's role in the Civil War and the difficult decisions he had to make. We'll discuss some of the key Vermont connections to Lincoln and how Vermonters responded to Lincoln's leadership with historian Howard Coffin and Hildene Executive Director Seth Bongartz.

Also, we'll hear from Congressman Peter Welch about his vote on the last minute 'fiscal cliff' legislation.
