Yemen has become the latest country in the Middle East to collapse under terrorist control, as the country’s U.S.-backed prime minister and cabinet stepped down this week after Al Qaeda-inspired Shiite rebels took control of the capital. President Obama said in his State of the Union Address that American leadership is stopping the advance of ISIS, but the Middle East continues to unravel, and cooperation between Al Qaeda offshoots in the region is growing. We’ll discuss Yemen, ISIS and the growing influence of Iran in the region with White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.

Ohio Governor John Kasich (R) has launched a six-state tour promoting a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Currently 24 states have passed resolutions in support of the amendment, with 10 more needed for a constitutional convention. Kasich says the nation’s mounting debt has served as his motivation, but his cross-country travels have spurred growing speculation about the possibility of a 2016 White House bid. We’ll talk exclusively with Gov Kasich about his budget amendment campaign, and whether he’ll run for president.
