Occupy Wall Street gaining strength – could this be the beginning of a new political movement?

The "Occupy Wall Street" campaign, which began September 17th, has spread across the country. Many are saying this could be the making of a new political movement, possibly the liberal verison on the Tea Party movement.

At this point the "Occupy Wall Street" movement doesn't have one clear mission statement, but that hasn't stopped people from wondering if, with fresh union support, if the protests will turn into something more.

On American Morning this morning, Georgetown University history professor Michael Kazin talks with Carol Costello about what it would take to turn the energy in these crowds into a political movement.
