Pundits on both sides of the aisle largely agree that Hillary Clinton emerged relatively unscathed from 11 hours of congressional grilling yesterday on the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Vice President Joe Biden decided that he’s run out of time to mount an effective campaign against her and will not jump into the race. And two of her other rivals, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee, dropped out this week.

Jon Ralston of the Reno Gazette and Jesse Holland of the Associated Press join Here & Now hosts Robin Young and Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the weekly roundup in the race for 2016.
