Hosted by

The Labor Department said today the economy added just 80,000 jobs in October, and unemployment is stuck at nine percent. That's more bad news for a president with only a year left until he stands for reelection. But, as the G-20 Summit came to an end, President Obama gave it a positive spin. Richard Stevenson is political editor for the New York Times.
