Governing in the New Year

Host Bob Edwards talks with John Podesta, former chief of staff to President Bill Clinton, and Frank Donatelli, who worked on President Reagan's transitional team, about the 108th Congressional session that begins today. Republicans control both chambers. While both parties plan to push for progress on domestic issues, contentious differences from the 107th Congress may linger.
