Election wrap up from Baghdad

Monday, February 02, 2009

In 2005, Iraqis went to the polls to elect leadership, but the Sunni population refused to participate. Last weekend Iraqis went to the polls again and everyone turned out. Anthony Shadid, Middle East correspondent for The Washington Post, joins us now from Baghdad with an account of how the elections went and what outcome is expected.
