What's next for North Korea after Kim Jong-il? James Rubin weighs in

This morning, North Korea state television reported that Kim Jong-il has died.  North Koreans are being urged to follow Kim Jong-il's son, Kim Jung Un, as their new leader.

However, very little is known about Kim Jung Un, leading many world leaders to worry about whether he can maintain control of the reclusive nation and its nuclear program.

Today on American Morning, Alina Cho and Ali Velshi talk with James Rubin, former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, about what the death of Kim Jong-il means for the future of North Korea.
