Episode Summary

The Day of Reckoning
Whither the Democrats? Will the party become increasingly regional, and not a national organization at all? What do the Democrats offer the American heartland, in practical terms, that the Republicans do not? Will Tuesday's results lead Democrats to re-think their unflagging support for abortion rights and gay rights? Tucker discusses the Democratic future with Paul Begala, former Clinton White House official and long-time Democratic strategist.

And on our Plus 2 segment are panelists Zanny Minton Beddoes of The Economist and David Frum of National Review and the American Enterprise Institute. Tucker and the panel engage in a wide-ranging discussion analyzing the impact of the Bush victory on America at home and abroad. At home, are Evangelicals and gays the biggest winners and losers, respectively, from the election result? What's the future of Attorney General John Ashcroft and the Patriot Act? Abroad, will being freed from re-election worries change the Bush strategy in Iraq? What about the administration's approach to Europe and its engagement in Middle East policy?moreless
