2011 starts with a bang (of the gavel)! John Boehner and the GOP take control of the House but are already arguing with Democrats over the deficit & health care. There’s a reorganization at the White House too, with new players coming & going this week. Joining Gwen this week: John Dickerson (Slate/CBS), Major Garrett (National Journal), Julianna Goldman (Bloomberg) and Jeff Zeleny (NY Times).
