On the day after the inauguration many thousands are expected to take part in the 'Women's March on Washington". Organizers who began planning the event last November shortly after the presidential election say the objective is to bring national attention to women and other groups who feel they have been marginalized. We'll hear different perspectives on who's going, who isn't and its possible political impact.
The period between Election Day 2000 and the determination of the winner in the Presidential contest was a 36-day marathon for journalists who were in Florida and Washington, DC to cover the race. The new book Deadlock is a behind-the-scenes account of those weeks. Washington Post political reporters David von Drehle, Dan Balz, Ellen Nakashima, and Jo Becker all contributed to this book. They join Susan Page to talk about their experiences and observations.
