Guests:

Joining us in our studio is Monica Brady-Myerov, reporter for WBUR Boston. She's been covering the Senate race closely. See WBUR's complete coverage.

Joining us from Washington is Julie Rovner, health policy correspondent for NPR. Her latest story looks at how a Republican win in Massachusetts could derail the Democrats' health care reform bill.

Also from Washington, we're joined by Byron York, chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner, and contributor to its Beltway Confidential blog. His latest piece asks, "With new GOP strength in Senate, will Obamacare die in House?"

In our studio, we're also joined by Robert Kuttner, co-founder and co-editor of The American Prospect, distinguished senior fellow at the think tank Demos, and author of "Obama’s Challenge: America’s Economic Crisis and the Power of a Transformative Presidency."  In a recent column, "Wake Up Call," he argues that Obama's handling of health care has done "incalculable political damage" to the president's agenda.

And from Stanford, Calif., we're joined by David M. Kennedy, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian at Stanford University and author of many books, including "Freedom From Fear: The American People in Depression and War, 1929-1945."

This program aired on January 20, 2010.
