Robert Siegel talks with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), about his party's agenda in the new Congress.

McConnell says that a divided government can be productive, and he expects that big things can be done in the upcoming session.

But, he says, he wishes the Democrats' agenda included comprehensive immigration changes or Social Security initiatives. McConnell also discusses the minimum wage, Iraq, and immigration.
