Democracy in a Volatile Region: Afghanistan Chooses a President

Afghanistan's runoff election moves the country another step closer to replacing outgoing President Hamid Karzai. But some Afghans say they don't really care who wins -- they're just eager for the new president to take office and re-start the economy, sign an agreement that will let U.S. troops stay beyond December and improve public safety after 13 years of war. Kojo sits with Rangina Hamidi, WRN Network Member, Afghanistan, to discuss Afghanistan's elections, the priorities of the Afghan people and how new leadership will shape the country's future in a volatile region and what it will mean for ending America's longest war.
