This edition: President Obama's Re-election: United We Stand on Criminal Justice Reforms?
Original tape date: November 20, 2012.
First aired: December 5, 2012.
President Obama’s re-election hasn’t changed the fact that the nation remains divided along party lines. However, there is one important part of his agenda where there seems to be common ground: fixing the nation’s broken criminal justice system. Americans from all parts of the political spectrum are ready to take a more pragmatic approach to justice issues that once divided the country. How will the second Obama Administration take advantage of this shift?
