Interview with John Nichols, Washington correspondent with the Nation magazine, conducted by Scott Harris
With victories in a majority of critical swing states across the county, President Obama was re-elected to a second term. Control of both the House of Representatives and Senate remained unchanged, with Republicans holding on to the House despite the loss of several extreme right tea party-endorsed candidates and Senate Democrats picking up seats in Massachusetts and Indiana. Democratic Senate candidates elected or re-elected in hard-fought campaigns Nov. 6 included Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Chris Murphy, of Connecticut, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Tim Kaine of Virginia and Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin. Progressive Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders won an overwhelming victory in Vermont.
The Democrats held onto power in the White House and Senate despite a coordinated Republican effort to put in place restrictive voter ID laws, limiting early voting and curtailing voter registration that targeted Democratic-leaning voters. The election came a week after monster hurricane Sandy visited destruction in New York City and across the Northeast, highlighting the critical importance of government emergency assistance during times of natural disasters, a moment that many pundits maintained gave a last-minute boost to the president.
Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with John Nichols, Washington correspondent with the Nation magazine, who explains why he believes progressive gains in the U.S. Senate could change the political environment in Washington and describes the serious battles ahead over the future of Social Security and Medicare.
