House Democrats voted 203-32 to nominate Rep. Nancy Pelosi as the new Speaker of the House. We discuss the results with a political scientist. And the Victoria’s Secret fashion show airs this weekend, but enthusiasm for the brand seems to be waning. We explore what’s behind the decline. We also take a look at a new children’s book that introduces a wider variety of words than your typical alphabet book.
