FROM THIS EPISODE

After 30 years in Washington, US Senator Barbara Boxer says it's time to come home, and she won't run for re-election next year. She's been a liberal conservationist with a taste for confrontation, as opposed to compromise. Which Democrats -- and which Republicans -- are most likely to try to replace her?

Also, Southern California may be the world's most diverse metropolitan region, with all the elements that can make for trouble in the rest of the world. Will there be fallout from yesterday's massacre in Paris?

A Major Shakeup for California Politics 11 MIN, 31 SEC

US Senator Barbara Boxer says she will never really retire, but she won't run for re-election next year after more than three decades in Washington. It's not age or Republican power on Capitol Hill. She says she wants to perform political work back home in California. She insists it's not because of the Republican takeover of the upper house. Are there armies of Democrats and Republicans ready to run?
