Corn on Hardball: What’s Obama’s Campaign Pitch?


Mother Jones Washington bureau chief David Corn and the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza joined host Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball to discuss how President Obama is trying to shift the election conversation into a debate about ideas and ideology. When Obama formally launched his reelection campaign on Saturday, his selling point was this: America’s on the right track, but there’s more to do—and Romney isn’t the man to do it.
