Congressman Artur Davis, a 4 term Democratic Member of the US House of Representatives from Alabama and a current Fellow at the Harvard Institute of Politics, speaks to RARadio on the election results. A former democrat and one who seconded Barack Obama's nomination, gives advice to Republicans, pointing to the fact that in polls the people thought Republicans were better prepared than Democrats to tackle the problems; for example 51% agreed they would be better in handling the economy..." On issue after issue, they agreed with the Republicans." For Mr. Davis, it was a close race and for him, Governor Romney "ran a good campaign, however, late deciders moved to Obama..." Our side, "under-estimating the pollsters..." Mr. Davis gives his impression of what happened in the Battleground states and the Democrat turnout, the demonizing of the Republican candidate by the Democrat party... And asked what about the future of the Republican Party? Mr. Davis replied that " we should be concerned with the fortunes of all Americans, latinos, not simply corporate lobbyists...." When asked about his future in Republican politics, Mr. Davis stressed he will continue to be involved in Virginia politics, asserting "my task is in helping Republicans."

Ambassador John Price served as US Ambassador to the Republic of Mauritius, Republic of Seychelles and Union of Comoros from 2002-2005 and currently serves as a Resident Scholar at the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics. Ambassador Price speaks of former Ambassador to China and Singapore, Jon Huntsman who, for him, is the ideal candidate for the position of Secretary of State. Why? Because Ambassador Huntsman has a vast experience in the public, diplomatic and business sectors. And, "knows the problems [overseas] and how to deal with Congress." For Ambassador Price, Jon Huntsman (Republican) is not a threat to the President, having retired at an early date, from the campaigns. Ambassador Price calls for President Obama to become more "centrist" in his second Administration and while he says "Clinton is knowledgeable and pro American, spending time overseas, she is not accomplishing a lot." For he is adamant that choosing Susan Rice would be a "big mistake" after her reaction on Benghazi...and points to her influence "while serving as assistant secretary of state for African affairs under former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, she helped persuade President Clinton to rebuff Sudan's offer to turn Osama bin Laden, who was then living there, over to U.S. authorities."

Col. McIntyre, taught at West Point and served as Dean of the Academics Faculty at the National War College, speaks of his recently released novel, "Centerline" which "captures the incredible story of the US Military's medical system-moving the wounded from the battlefield back to their home towns. .."No matter how the system works, the stresses on the soldiers and their families remain: going to war throws people off center, so does coming home"
