This past election season was dominated by coverage of the Tea Party — and many outgoing politicians were ousted by Tea Party-backed candidates. Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah) was among the first and most surprising of these casualties, losing to Tea Party-supported Mike Lee in Utah's Republican convention, back in May.

In the second of our ongoing "Exit Interview" series, Bennett joins us to discuss the role of fear in campaigning, his support for the Troubled Asset Relief Program, and the unpredictability of politics.
