When President Bill Clinton appointed Dee Dee Myers press secretary, she was the first woman to hold that job -- and at 31, one of the youngest. Myers joined us in studio to talk about why women should rule the world, why she thinks Hillary Clinton lost, and how President Barack Obama is doing so far. Her book, "Why Women Should Rule the World," is now out in paperback.
