Greece's New Prime Minister Has His Work Cut Out For Him

Alexis Tsipras is the next prime minister of Greece, his party Syriza has won 149 of the 300 seats in Greek Parliament and nobody's exactly sure what's going to happen next.
Tsipras and left-wing Syriza have formed a coalition with the right-wing Independent Greeks party, which won 13 seats Sunday. The thing they have in common? They're both anti-austerity. (Video via Euronews)
Tsipras told crowds, "With this, Greece turns a page, leaves behind the poverty of catastrophe, leaves behind the fear, leaves behind five years of humiliation."
