(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Gloria Borger and Erick Erickson about Bachmann and avoiding the questions about family money. [BORGER - says people want answers to these questions because she campaigns against big government; believes former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will not run, but wants to be a kingmaker.] [ERICKSON - says there can be an explanation, so a detailed answer is needed; predicts there will be a pile-on against Bachmann from other Republicans; speculates about Palin getting into the race.]
