Editors' Roundtable

The editors of America discuss the film "The Tree of Life," a new novel set in Brooklyn and the miracle of conjoined twins.
Kevin Clarke hosts a discussion with fellow editors Raymond A. Schroth, S.J., and Francis X. Hezel, S.J., on Foreign Policy's annual list of failed states, what risks these states pose to the international community and what role other nations should play in their rehabilitation. The editors also look at a growing sense of disappointment with President Obama from critics such as Maureen Dowd, and more seriously, David Bromwich, whose essay in the New York Review of Books offers a devastating critique of Obama's governing style.
