Too many parents are shielding their kids from failure and that's a bad thing, and praising them too much. Ashley Merryman joins the panel. She wrote the op-ed and is co-author of 'Top Dog: The Science of Winning and Losing.' The debate comes on the same night AC360 won an Emmy Award.

Shutdown does not stop WWII vets

The government shutdown is not stopping a group of veterans from visiting the World War II Memorial. They showed up by the busload, many in wheelchairs. There was plenty of praise for these vets after the barriers were pushed aside. Some of the vets come the same district where their lawmakers couldn't strike a deal to keep the monument open.
