Bill Maher talks election results with Eliot Spitzer

Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” joins “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer to assess the post–Election Day political landscape. In a wide-ranging interview, they discuss Karl Rove’s Fox News Ohio denial, Mitt Romney’s candidacy, whether Chris Christie can be “a hopeful beacon for the Republican Party,” Bill Kristol’s shifting opinion on tax policy and how the GOP needs to change moving forward.

“The conservatives lost, and now, now is the time for progressives,” Maher says. “We can obsess about every stupid thing that conservatives do, and they will keep doing stupid things, but really what we need to do, I think, is turn our attention to the president and hold his feet to the fire on those issues like getting out of Afghanistan, civil liberties, stopping the drug war, climate change — these are issues where he was not not able to do I’m sure as much as he wanted to do in the first term, but look, he has no more elections to run. If not now, when? This is the time.”
