AlterNet Radio: Romney's Team Was Clueless They Were Losing; Is a Disastrous Grand Bargain Coming?

This week we have a Big Post-Election Special on tap. First, we're joined by Jamelle Bouie and Thomas Schaller. Jamelle is a staffer for the American Prospect, and a regular contributor to the Washington Post's Plumline blog. Tom is a professor of political science at the University of Maryland, a columnist for the Baltimore Sun and author of Whistling Past Dixie: How Democrats Can Win Without the South. A great discussion about some of the big themes of Election 2012, and a look ahead at whether and how Obama can govern in his second term.

Then we speak with Heather "Digby" Parton and AlterNet's own Lynn Parramore about fiscal slopes -- always wrongly called a "cliff" -- grand bargains and how progressives can work to protect Social Security and Medicare from the predations of hypocritical granny-bashers. 

If you're in Washington, DC, you can tune into the show at 4 pm EST at 1480 AM. If you're anywhere else, you can stream it live at  We Act Radio , and if you miss it, check back later for a podcast.
