Scientists of human behavior helped Barack Obama get to the White House. Now they're helping him "nudge" Americans to make "better" choices.  We hear the pros and cons of a new form of leadership. Also, stocks continue rebound on good news about banks. On Reporter's Notebook, will there be less outrage over tax-funded bank bailouts if small-time investors can make a profit? What if the deal goes sour?
