A desk by any other name

Tuesday, January 06, 2009

As the 111th Congress begins, so does a very special ritual on the senate floor. Incoming senators begin the shuffling and choosing which of the 100 desks in the Senate chamber they want to occupy… and every desk has a very long history. Todd Zwillich joins John and Adaora in a historical and surprising behind the scenes tour of the desks of the United States Senate.
