Inside Washington - Dec. 9, 2013

(WJLA) - The death of Nelson Mandela is being mourned around the world after the man many called "Madiba" passed away at the age of 95.

The legacy of Mandela is one of the many topics on this week's edition of Inside Washington with Gordon Peterson.

The panel also discusses President Barack Obama's statements on income inequality, something that he called earlier this week the "defining challenge of our time." his comments came as fast food workers - many of whom scrape by on minimum wage - staged a nationwide one-day strike.

The panel also tackles the GOP's image and tensions over Chinese airspace.
