Washington Week

Episode #4315

Moderator: Gwen Ifill. Voters in the Golden State have spoken: they want Arnold. Karen Tumulty of Time Magazine and Dan Balz of The Washington Post will be at the Washington Week roundtable this week analyzing the results of this historic race. What was behind California Governor Gray Davis's ouster? Were the issues at play specific to California or are there national implications to this week's events? Dan and Karen will tell us all about it. Changes are afoot in the war on terror. There are new plans to tighten the White House's control over the stabilization of Iraq, with more authority over the mission coming straight from National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice. Is this a blow to Secretary Rumsfeld's role in securing Iraq? Doyle McManus of the Los Angeles Times will sort out the questions and answers surrounding this shakeup. Just how are the reconstruction efforts in Iraq progressing? Martha Raddatz of ABC News -- just back from a trip to Iraq and Afganistan -- will debrief the panel on what she saw and heard during her travels through these two major fronts in the war on terror.
