Elected to the Senate in 2006, the problems Amy Klobuchar has tried to tackle since, often in partnership with a Republican colleague, range from herculean (comprehensive immigration reform) to plain common sense (backup paper ballots).
Ms. Klobuchar met with The Times’s editorial board [Related: What Is an Editorial Board?] on Dec. 10. She put an emphasis on the practical — what she genuinely feels she can achieve in her administration — as she addressed big questions on economics, health policy and foreign policy. The board aimed at getting a sense of the vision underlying that pragmatism.
