New novel takes satirical lens to Texas politics

Politics can be a dirty business — and nowhere may that be truer than in the Texas Statehouse. The new novel "Mr. Texas" takes aim at just that — with a satirical look at the king-makers and power brokers in the Lone Star State. Author Lawrence Wright joins CBS News to discuss what went into writing the book.
