I have to say, the most important thing for us to watch is, can they make the kind of changes that we have seen in the past five years, when things were happening in the United States that people didn’t want to see happening, and it was the Republicans who were in charge, that were the ones who were the most vulnerable?
And I have a feeling we will be hearing that for a long time.”CNN reporter and political analyst Ali Velshi: “There are so many questions to be answered.
