Fresh off his failed Senate bid, Rep. Michael Capuano got a reprieve. The fiery Democratic lawmaker from the 8th Congressional District is the only Massachusetts House member running for re-election this November without a Republican opponent, and it's looking like he will have an easy walk to his seventh term.

We talk to Capuano about financial regulation, his opposition to the Afghanistan war and what he thinks of his new colleague, Sen. Scott Brown.

This program aired on June 3, 2010.
