The 2004 national election gave Republicans four more years in the Oval Office, as well as increased majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate. Now the GOP is flexing its new muscle, seeking to strengthen its legislative hand. NPR's Tavis Smiley talks about growing GOP influence with Donna Brazile, Democratic political strategist and former campaign manager for the Gore-Lieberman 2000 campaign, and Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA).
