This hour, host Meghna Chakrabarti speaks to U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren about being silenced last night by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. We also get analysis on the arcane rule from The Boston Globe's Matt Viser. Then, we talk sports with Bill Littlefield of NPR's Only A Game and check into the conditions for tonight's icy commute. Finally, we talk to historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, who coined the phrase, "well-behaved women seldom make history." Her new book is "A House Full of Females: Plural Marriage and Women's Rights in Early Mormonism."
