Politics Day

President Obama’s second inauguration is less than a week away.

On this Politics Day, Ben Kieffer gets a preview of the event and expectations for Obama’s second term from political scientists Wayne Moyer of Grinnell College, and Chris Larimer of the University of Northern Iowa.  Rachel Caufield of Drake University is in D.C. with several students for the inauguration and are documenting their experiences.

Also, the debt limit stand-off and the unveiling of the White House’s gun violence proposals.
