FROM THIS EPISODE

After Scott Brown's victory in Massachusetts, Senate Democrats can't stop Republican filibusters any more. What does that mean for health care reform?  What about the rest of the Obama agenda with the President's approval ratings on the decline? What's the message for California, with Barbara Boxer's US Senate seat on the line and an open race for Governor?  We hear from some political pros and update the weather.
