This week, a special "Washington Week." We take a look at the new Congress. What are the issues this Congress will tackle? Which members will be the most powerful? What are the challenges facing the new Senate majority leader? Does the White House face easy going or a skeptical body? Will the Democratic candidates for president strengthen or dilute the Democrats' message? And what is the job of the Congress as the nation prepares for war? We explore these areas and more with David Broder of the Washington Post, Janet Hook of the Los Angeles Times, Gebe Martinez of Congressional Quarterly, Martha Raddatz of ABC News and John Harwood of the Wall Street Journal. Moderator: Gwen Ifill [26 minutes]
