In hour one of Here & Now's Dec. 7, 2017 full broadcast, we discuss the latest in the wake of Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken's announcement that he will resign from the Senate "in the coming weeks" with NPR's Jessica Taylor. Also, we take a closer look at what a new privately funded rail line might mean for South Florida, and whether it will spur similar projects around the country. And analysts Neri Zilber and Ghaith al-Omari of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy join us to discuss how Israelis and Palestinians are reacting to President Trump's decision Wednesday to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and begin the process of moving the U.S. Embassy there.
