The Democrats Reclaim Congress

Hosted by

Illinois Congressman Rahm Emanuel helped make history this morning by nominating Nancy Pelosi to be the first woman House Speaker as the Democrats took charge today on Capitol Hill.  Pelosi leads a 31-vote Democratic majority, while the new Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid, has just one vote to work with.  What's the Democratic agenda, and can the new leaders hold their party together? Will new legislation be met with vetoes from the Republican in the White House?  What about the war in Iraq?
