Hear ye, hear ye. It’s 2010. Twenty ten! Two thousand and ten.

Say it anyway you like. We’ve got a new year going here — after an old year that just about everyone was happy to say goodbye to. 2010.

We’re going to look ahead this hour at what the year may hold — at hopes and fears and possibilities — with Gail Collins of The New York Times, Reihan Salam of National Review, and Jack Beatty.

Is this the year of economic comeback? Terrorism comeback? Republican comeback? This hour, On Point: We’re dipping into 2010.

Guests:

Joining us from New York is Gail Collins, Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times and author of “When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present.”

Also from New York, we’re joined by Reihan Salam. He’s a fellow at the New America Foundation, a contributor to National Review, The Daily Beast, and Forbes,  and co-author of “Grand New Party: How Conservatives Can Win the Working Class and Save the American Dream.”

And with us from Hanover, N.H., is Jack Beatty, On Point news analyst and senior editor at The Atlantic.
