Tipping the Scales

6 segments

The midterm election results will change the balance of power in Washington -- but there’s uncertainty in Albany, where a few state senate races are still too close to call. New York Magazine's Chris Smith and The Nation's Melissa Harris-Perry take a look at the national picture and the situation in New York. Plus: Senator-Elect Richard Blumenthal; U.S./India economic relations; the midterm elections in history; Olbermann's suspension; and the rise and fall of the modern hipster.
