The August Recess Is Finally Over

Hosted by

Congress is back after the August recess, faced with the same problems it failed to address in July. We hear about healthcare, global warming, finance reform — partisan Republicans and divided Democrats.  Also, President Obama delivered his speech to America's school children today, and President Hamid Karzai has enough votes, but Afghanistan's Electoral Complaints Commission has ordered a partial recount of last month's election.
