What's Ahead For The Republican Party

In the wake of President Obama's victory, Republicans are questioning whether they're out of touch with an evolving American electorate. What's ahead for the GOP.

Since Tuesday's election, many Republicans have called for a frank reassessment of what it means to be a member of the GOP. As one Republican strategist put it, "Our party needs to realize that it's too old and too white and too male and it needs to figure out how to catch up with the demographics of the country before it's too late." Diane and Republican analysts discuss the identity and future of the GOP.
