Chipped Tooth Sidelines Holder

One day after we learned that Hillary Clinton won't be travelling to Russia because of a broken elbow comes word that Attorney General Eric Holder is dropping out of the Aspen Ideas Festival.

The reason, as CBS News' Deidre Hester reports, is that the AG is having emergency dental surgery today for removal of a cracked tooth. Holder's spokesman said the tooth had to be removed immediately.

Holder was supposed to have participated in an afternoon session today at the festival, which "features leaders from the fields of arts, science, culture, religion, philosophy, economics and politics."
