Air date: 
Tue, 01/22/2013 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
What can progressives expect -- or hope for -- from Obama's 2nd term?

 President Obama was inaugurated for the second time yesterday, cementing what will certainly be remembered as one of the more unlikely personal stories in American history. For progressives, though, the Obama presidency has been a mixed bag at best.

What can we expect from his second term? Without the pressure of re-election bearing upon him, will we see a bolder Obama? Will we see meaningful action on climate change? On gun violence? Will we at long last see the next New Deal we've been hoping for? Join Abe and Joe as they look forward at the next four years.
