A day before President Elect Obama is sworn in, Crop To Cuisine explores the politics of our food. We speak with professor and author of Food Politics Marion Nestle about the incoming administration and the potential changes coming to the USDA because of it. We also speak with Bart Miller. He is the Water Program Director at Western Resource Advocates. He shares his experience in the politics of water in Colorado government. And Maeve Conran reports on a measure in Longmont, CO where backyard chickens have become a heated issue amongst city residents.
