More than three weeks on from election day, the US is creeping towards a transition of power.

There've been lawsuits, bizarre press conferences, accusations of voter fraud, recounts, and a mysteriously dripping Rudy Giuliani.

Joining us is Alex Burns, the national political correspondent of The New York Times. He's a regular on The Times' news podcast The Daily and a political analyst at CNN.
