True Politics: What does Mike Huckabee's "libido" comment mean for GOP efforts to attract women voters?

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is a longtime critic of the Affordable Care Act. At the Republican party's annual winter meeting today this is what he said about the law's birth control coverage:

"If the democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it."

This comes as Republicans are working to win over women voters ahead of the midterm elections. Anderson takes a look at the GOP's efforts.

Democrats were quick to fire back. Dana Bash has the latest on the fallout.

President Kennedy's political legacy

President John F. Kennedy inspired generations of politicians who came after him. President Clinton said the moment he shook President Kennedy's hand helped spark his career in public service. Texas Congressman Roger Williams, a Tea Party Republican, also shook President Kennedy's hand as a child–just hours before the assassination. Congressman Williams told Dana Bash how that moment inspired his conservative political career.
