(Studio: Erica Hill) Angry scenes at town hall meetings around the country about health care reform shown.

(Studio: Erica Hill) Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen about the town hall protests. [GERGEN - says we have a history of boisterous politics, but this has become offensive; asks where is the Republican leadership on this issue; speculates about where this unrest at the rallies has roots; states more Democrats need to step up, too, to put an end to these brawling debates; notes there is a tremendous polarization that makes governing very hard.]

Hill, Erica
