Like two teams that meet in the seventh game of a World Series, both the Democratic and Republican parties bought Champagne for election night. But in this instance, it was hard for either to pop the corks. Days went by. The bubbly got warm and went flat.

This episode: congressional correspondent Susan Davis, senior editor & correspondent Domenico Montanaro, and senior editor & correspondent Ron Elving.
