The GOP and the Lessons of Last Year's Election

Hosted by

Barack Obama's second victory showed Republicans that the nation is changing, and that's led to an agonizing reappraisal. They're agreed on the need to reach out to Hispanics, women, blacks and Asians, but are divided on how that should be done. Rethinking core policies could alienate one or more party factions. Re-writing election rules could look like rigging the system. Will the emphasis change on immigration, big business, foreign policy and social issues? Will they look to the states, rather than Washington?
