>> hill, we have an update of something that became kind of a s symbol of the government shutdown. it's called the ohio clock. it's stood for almost two centuries outside the entrance to the u.s. senate . it stopped running, just stopped on october 9. there was no one around to wind it because they had been furloughed. that changed today. you see the man there. tonight it's up and running and ticking and keeping time.
