Dinner Panel:
America's Political Landscape as the Midterms Approach

What's the mood of the American voter? CNN's Campbell Brown aims to find out in a panel featuring Brian Schweitzer (left), the Democratic governor of Montana, and Tim Pawlenty, the Republican governor of Minnesota.

The topics at this political panel were potentially incendiary, but it was one of the more civil political discussions of the past 12 months.

Go watch the video for this wide-ranging discussion of Arizona's immigration law, the just-concluded grilling of Goldman Sachs executives on Capitol Hill, the financial bailout and the Tea Party phenomenon, among others.

Here's a sample to whet your appetite:

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty on why Tea Partiers are so angry: "They are concerned about a government that they feel is too large. They note that we now have state-sponsored companies that are supposedly too big to fail. We have a federal government that is too big to succeed. We have a federal debt that's too big to pay off. And they see that we have leaders who are too small to do anything about it."

Radio host Matt Miller on why they will continue to be angry: "The Tea Party folks have no anchoring in any sort of policy reality, and as soon as anybody who tried to lead them proposed any actual measures it would take to do what they say they want, they would be just as upset with the proposals of their leaders as they are now. We're going to be In a cycle of anti-establishment and anti-incumbency maybe for the foreseeable future because nothing that's on the horizon in terms of what our leaders are offering is going to change the fundamental trajectory of their economic status."
