The Daily Rundown | November 28, 2012
>>> let's bring back our panel. tony, with you here, i thought i'd use this as an excuse. you were there, bush's second term. politically, what lesson can barack obama and the democratic party learn from a mistake, if you will, that bush made in the first six months?
>> i think the failure was that we never picked a fight with our party. we never vetoed a spending bill and did not put us in a position we could be an independent actor with both parties for the second term.
>> i've heard this complaint from democrats about the president.
>> on bush?
>> no, no, on the president, that he's needs to always be the independent actor.
>> i think in this instance, i want to say i think the president needs to use the leverage he has in that massive database that he didn't use in the first term that we were wondering if he would use the first time. use it, get what you want.
>> sitting on a lot of political capital , now i'm going to spend it. don't assume people re-elected you to do everything you said you would. they just liked you better than the other guy.
>> shameless plugs.
>> rollcall.com. it's free. our 2014 senate ratings coming out tomorrow.
>> no more pass words?
>> no more nothing. if p ice in the print edition, it's there.
>> world aids day is thursday. i support orphans december 1st , saturday night.
>> record number of women in congress. shameless plug. i hope it brings a little bit of sanity to the process.
>> all of the committee chairs in the house republican conference --
>> all white men.
>> picture of the party's potential problems. that's it for this edition of "the daily rundown." coming up next, chris jansing .
