NPR's Julie McCarthy reports from London on the results of yesterday's election. As predicted, Tony Blair easily gained a second term as prime minister, after his Labor Party took a majority in the House of Commons. After conceding the election, Blair's opponent William Hague announced he will resign the leadership of the Conservative Party, hoping others will make it more responsive to the British public.
