As the days go by, more questions arise about the timing of Mitt Romney’s employment at Bain— Michael Steele, Former Chairman of the Republican National Committee and MSNBC Analyst, Eugene Robinson, MSNBC Analyst and Associate Editor and Pulitzer Prize winning Columnist for the Washington Post, will join Ed to talk about what it all means.

President Obama was on the campaign trail in Virginia today, a key battleground state in this year’s election—and the home of Majority Leader Eric Cantor and Gov. Bob McDonnell (remember the mandatory ultrasound bill?). Tonight Ed will talk with Madeleine Stowe, Actress and the Keynote Speaker at the Women’s Strike Force event in Richmond, VA, about whether the Republican war on women has mobilized voters and to discuss her support for Wayne Powell—the Vet who’s challenging Eric Cantor.

Tonight, Ed is going to tell you the truth about the Affordable Care Act and how it’s already helping small businesses. Kimberly Newman and Cathy Cook, both small business owners, will join Ed to get into the ways in which the ACA will actually affect them and their employees.

Mitt Romney’s camp is doing whatever it takes to distract us from his Bain problems—a well-timed story came out last night claiming that Condoleezza Rice is at the top of Romney’s VP list. Keli Goff, Author of “The GQ Candidate”, Ari Berman, Contributing Writer for The Nation and Rolling Stone, and Michael Medved, Nationally Syndicated Talk Show Host, weigh in.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is calling, yet again, for filibuster reform as Republicans continue their campaign of obstruction. Richard Wolffe, MSNBC Political Analyst, joins Ed to talk about what lies ahead.
