Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi faced two votes of confidence today in his country's government. The Italian parliament in Rome conducted a vote of confidence on Berlusconi in the lower house last, and if the votes didn't come down in his favor, he could have been forced to resign as Prime Minister. Berlusconi has escaped such situations before, however, and squeaked this morning by three votes. But what does it mean for his political future? For a look at Berlusconi and his fate as Italy's leader, we are joined by Italian journalist Beppe Severgnini, author of a book about Berlusconi, "La Pancia Degli Italiani: Berlusconi Spiegato Al Posteri."
