Haiti's New President To Take Office

Saturday marks a historic day for Haiti. For the first time in the country's history, presidential power is being handed over peacefully. President Rene Preval will be succeeded by Michel Martelly, a retired-musician-turned-politician. Martelly will also be Haiti's first head of state elected since last year's catastrophic earthquake. Robert Siegel talks with Jacqueline Charles, the Miami Herald's Caribbean correspondent.
