Around the world, tributes are pouring in for Nelson Mandela who passed away yesterday at the age of 95.
President Obama and the First Lady will head to South Africa next week to honor the South African leader. They will be traveling with former President George W. Bush and Laura Bush.
Former President Bill Clinton, a long-time friend of Mandela, is also planning a trip. Earlier today, Wolf Blitzer talked to Clinton about the advice Mandela gave him that guided him through some of his darkest moments.
Joining us now is Cornel West, who met with Mandela in South Africa in 2005, and the National Review's Reihan Salam.
