Political analyst Cokie Roberts, a longtime reporter for both NPR and ABC News, has consistently used her insight and experience to give clarity to complicated issues. Now she uses those skills to zero in on concerns that matter most to 50-plus Americans — a bloc of voters that is expected to have a powerful say in who controls Congress for the next two years.
In an interview, Roberts talked about this year's midterm elections and their impact on her own life. She spoke to us during a break from recording Prime Votes: Election 2010 National Forum, two 60-minute segments produced by Retirement Living TV. The first segment can be viewed on AARP.org beginning Friday, Oct. 22. The second will be available Monday, Oct. 25.
