Arianna appeared on ABC's "Nightline" on Tuesday night to discuss the election results and the message that was sent to the Obama administration by the American voters.

"The White House underestimated the degree of economic devastation," she said. "They were really misled by their economic team. Larry Summers had said again and again that come spring there would be real jobs growth. And it didn't happen."

Arianna pinpointed the priorities that could have yielded a different result. "It's not entirely clear that they have recognized that by putting health care ahead of jobs, they really set the conditions for this massive defeat today."
