It's Busy Inside the Beltway: Politics Are Sizzling in DC

Hosted by

Politicos say all kinds of things on shows like Meet the Press. Last Sunday, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that Republicans could win the House this fall. While he didn't say anything surprising to anyone tracking the mid-term elections, he unwittingly unleashed a political firestorm and his comments proved too much for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. House Democrats feel they're not getting enough credit or support for their role in helping President Obama win some big legislative victories. So Pelosi and the President had a lot to talk about when she went to the White House last night. Did she win more support from Obama? Is what's good for the President good for the House? Is the GOP on its way to a big win in November? What's rumbling in Alaska?
