There has been a lot of lofty rhetoric this week about toning down the inflamatory political discussions around the country, and showing respect to the dead and wounded from the attack in Arizona by being more civil on the airwaves and in Washington. But when lawmakers head back to congress next week, will the tone of discourse really change? Takeaway Washington correspondent Todd Zwillich helps us try to answer this question. We also speak with Todd about Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison's announcement yesterday that she won't run for re-election.
