Capitol Hill Bureau Chief
This week on Capitol Hill, lawmakers returned to Washington after the midterm elections. There were smiles, tears, fingerpointing, and victory laps.
But for all the change that the voters seemed to demand on Election Day, the leadership of the House and Senate remained completely unchanged. Republicans voted John Boehner and Mitch McConnell to stay on as their leaders, while Democrats kept Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid at the top of the party for the sixth year in a row.
So we have to ask -- if voters sent a message to shake things up on Election Day, did Washington just not hear it?
Politics Daily's esteemed panel of experts discuss that question, predict what might get accomplished in the lame duck session of Congress, and think of ways Barack Obama can get his groove back... all in today's installment of Politics Daily's Sunday show. Click play below to watch:
