Glenn Loury (Brown University) and John McWhorter (Time, Columbia University)

On The Glenn Show, Glenn and John discuss the aftermath of the election. John says that the less duplicitous candidate won, but Glenn disagrees. They explore the prospects for the second Obama administration, with John predicting more cooperation with Congress and Glenn predicting more gridlock. Can the GOP adapt to the country’s changing demographics? John thinks the Tea Party is over, while Glenn argues that it has only just begun. Did Netanyahu bet on the wrong horse in the US election? John and Glenn conclude by offering their respective views on what an Obama defeat would have meant for African-Americans.
