THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, November, 5th (part 1)

The World this Week takes stock of America’s changed political landscape after the Democrats’ drubbing in midterm elections and asks whether it all spells gridlock for Barack Obama. We also look at a week of frenzied diplomacy for Nicolas Sarkozy, from a big defence cooperation pact with Britain, to a controversial visit to France by Chinese President Hu Jintao.
