bill clinton twice and george bush in 2000. it's been the same with the oscars since 1945. last year in the best picture category, academy members voted for one of five films. the final tally is always a secret, but if it were close, "slum dog millionaire" could have won with as little as 24% of the vote. this year 10 films are nomidat nomidated, but the academy has figured out a way to see if tonight's winner will have more than 50%. in theory the top film might have only 15% of the votes. voters this year are ranking their films in order of preference, 1-10, though they're not required to rank all ten. the first choice votes are split into ten piles, one for each movie. if one film does not receive over 50%, the movie with the fewest first choice votes is eliminated and the second choice votes for that movie are counted and distributed to the nine films remaining. if there's still no majority, the next movie with the lowest votes is eliminated and its second or third choice ballots are counted or redistributed. this process continues, another film eliminated, lower preferences counted

mexico which had great promise given the two governors, vicente fox and george w. bush who came to power together to do something maybe earlier about the terrible border troubles that we now know are in mexico with the drug cartels, to do something about immigration reform. it was 2007 when we finally got to immigration reform. jon kyl, john mccain, teddy kennedy, george bush wanted a bill. they couldn't get it through. i think immigration reform is still one of our really great problems and now the states are doing a patchwork of immigration laws. so that's probably the one i'd do over most quickly, if i could. >> has there ever been a night -- is there a night now -- i know i don't have to tell you how many americans have been killed in the iraq invasion, in the afghanistan effort. hundreds of billions of dollars. so many young men and women coming back either physically or mentally challenged. do you ever think, i don't know -- was it worth it? did we get enough for what we gave? >> well, clearly one never gets over the lives that are lost and the lives that were changed. and i

want you to write large in terms of the romney campaign. in 2004 george bush won 56% of the hispanic vote here in florida. in 2008 president obama won 57%. so roughly even. right now given the positions that mitt romney has articulated that he stands for in terms of immigration and other issues, do you see him pulling these kind of numbers this year? >> i expect him to do better than how we did in 2008, but you have to work on it. i think what those numbers show -- >> right now today he couldn't pull those kind of numbers. >> the election is not today. i think we just got out of a primary cycle shall aand that's we're going to have a primary cycle. i think what those numbers explain is what i know instinctively to be true is that americans of hispanic descent are swing voters. the number one issue in the hispanic community is economic enpowerment. >> when you look at how hispanics feel about it, that's 40% gap between hispanics who say they favor president obama versus mitt romney. candidate romney has said he's for e-verify, making employers go through a system to check to

over 6%. three of them lost -- gerald ford, jimmy carter, and george h.w. bush. team obama can find some solace on this page in history -- ronald reagan beat walter mondale in a landslide re-election bid in 1984, even though the jobless rate was 7.2%. unemployment had been on the downswing and voters apparently trusted reagan to keep it going. and he did. four years later, unemployment was 5.3%. the obama administration hopes to tell a similar story, but remember, the unemployment rate was 7.8% when the president took office, 9.1% today. jobs, the economy and 2012, former white house insiders anita dunn and ed gillespie are next. ask me what it's like when my tempur-pedic moves. talk to someone who owns an adjustable version of the most highly recommended bed in america. ask me about my tempur advanced ergo. ask me about having all the right moves. these are real tempur advanced ergo owners. find one for yourself. try your friends on facebook. see what they have to say unedited. ask me what it's like to get a massage any time you want. tempur-pedic brand owners are more satisfied th

director for president george w. bush in 2000 and 2004. i want to start with a web ad and it was very early on when rick perry entered the race. i think in the first couple of weeks. here's a little bit of it for our viewers. >> i love these folks who say, well, this is obama's economy. that's fine. >> zero jobs. >> not a single job. >> no jobs created. zip, zero. >> people are demoralized. >> a great country requires a better direction. a renewed nation needs a new president. i believe in america. i believe in a purpose and a promise. i believe her best days have not yet been lived. >> okay, so mark mckinnon, my first question to you is, is there such a thing as going overboard? you know, clearly we have the pounding horse hooves and the texas boots and there's this very clear differentiation between here's president obama and there's all this confusion, the economy's bad, and in rides a guy on a white horse from the west. it just has a sort of "legends of of the fall" feel to it. >> these days you have to press the envelope. the president's whole zero idea got a lot of attention. an

you ask texans about this race, it's more mixed than it was, for instance, when george w. bush was running. >> why is that? >> i guess -- well, i think when you've been in office for a long time, you have a record and that record is fair game. and i think that some of the things in his record have certainly not been helpful and certainly the transtexas corridor was something that i had talked about and it was running over private property rights and i think that that's something that has stuck with the farm bureau and people who own land. so i think those are some of the things that you just have a record, just like i have a record. an any senator who's running has had votes that are controversial and i think that you have to make choices and you do make choices, you make people mad, that's part of the political process and so i think that it's just different and it is what it is. >> let me ask you about herman cain specifically. is anything that you've heard publicly over the past week disturbed you or made you think i'm not sure herman cain is the best answer for the republican p

he took over from george w. bush, and he has added jobs, not enough jobs, which they concede, but he's added jobs, and people are being a little more bullish on the economy, and that's where this election is decided. so doesn't he sit pretty well? >> i think he sits very badly once the facts are out because the truth is the unemployment rate -- if we had the same number of people in the workforce that we had on the day he was sworn in, it would be over 10% unemployment. what obama has succeeded in doing is actually driving people out of the workforce. so unemployment is down because there are fewer people looking for a job. but there's a deeper part. there is no recovery since world war ii that is as weak and as lacking in jobs as this recovery. now, if he wanted to campaign in 2010 and say it was george w. bush's fault, that's one thing, but after four years, can you imagine ronald reagan in 1984 saying, oh, it's all jimmy carter's fault? >> i want to move on because i want to ask you about mitt romney, but it is true that he came into a situation that no modern u.s. president ha

on the ballot too. when president bush, george w. bush, was president and we were in the majority and i was the speaker, we had our differences. we fought, but we also found common ground. >> i hank the leadership of the congress for joining us here. >> there are so many places where we came together. >> so you could work with mitt romney basically? if it came to that. >> mitt romney is not going to be president of the united states. >> let me ask you -- >> i think everybody knows that. >> the president has put out his -- by law he had to put out a response to detail what its cut and what doesn't get cut under what we call sequestration when you just mandate across the board cuts in both sides of the ledger. the republicans have complained repeatedly that there is no presidential leadership on this. in treeing to get republicans to avoid this fiscal cliff. >> well, the president has basically said yesterday. i received a call from him saying we really do have to have an agreement chshgs i fully agree with, and the must have -- do everything we can to find common ground. that's wha

this year. only a third of democrats feel the same way. how come? and this -- 45% say george bush was a better president than barack obama. 47% of americans picked president obama. when did that happen? and finally, 41% of americans say republicans are more responsible for the current economic problems. 47% think republicans are more likely to improve the economy. huh? answers and more questions coming up with pollster celinda lake and whit ayers. >>> joining me now here in washington, whit ayres, republican pollster and the president and founder of ayres, mchenry & associates. and celinda lake, democratic pollsters and president of lake research. welcome both. >> nice to be here. >> thank you. >> let me ask you first some of the questions we raised earlier. and that is why now -- i mean, it is astonishing to me that right now you can look at the polling and basically president obama and former president bush are tied when the question is, who was a better president? >> the reason is that people are really upset with the direction this president and the democratic leadership have taken

. yeah, but ronald reagan did well with anderson in it and he still did well. >> george h.w. bush didn't do so well with perot. >> that's true, that's another example. but anyway, i have no intention of doing it. nobody's particularly asked me to do it and they know what i'm doing and i have no plans whatsoever to do it. >> let me ask you about something that a man named matt robbins, who's the executive director of the american majority, which is a tea party faction, which has some sway -- it is not a small group. it is a fairly good size group who said this of michele let's face it, she's back-bencher and has been a back-bencher congress person for years. this is not a serious presidential campaign. do you agree with that? >> well, i think she's very serious. i think she did quite well. we were essentially tied for the ames straw vote. so no, to say she's not serious or for somebody to all of a sudden make a declaration on tv or make some challenges that's repeated on tv means that a person's campaign is wiped out. i don't think that's fair. >> and finally, george will, a well-k

have worked under george bush and bill clinton and george w. bush and under obama, and the u.s. is still the best place in the world to do business and people on the board of seven start-up companies and we don't spend any time talking about this. it is never a conversation. >> so business isn't worried about -- >> well, that is a different country, because i talk to business people everyday and they are terrified with what this administration is going to do with a second term. you take for example oil explore race, and we have been focused on wind and solar and it is about this big, and the president has talked about green jobs. he has not given permits to oil companies to drill. we could be the saudi arabia -- >> but the production the highest it has been. >> yes, the production is high on the private lands and that is what the president uses to brag about the federal policy, but on private lands, no production in 90 days. >> why do we need to do more on federal lands? >> because we want to be independent. governor romney has set a goal to be energy independent in america in 2020

in washington, condoleezza rice, secretary of state under president george w. bush and author of "no higher honor, a memoir of my years in washington." secretary, nice to see you. >> nice to see you. >> on your 12-hour fly by washington. >> my fly by washington, right. >> i want to start with some news of the day, because it seems to me in watching what's come out of penn state, you are a huge sports fan. >> i am, yes. >> i know you know joe paterno, at least who he is. you may even know him personally. and you were also served as provost at stanford so you look at this from so many sides. i just wonder your reaction to what you've seen going on. >> well, my reaction is that this is first of all a very sad affair for the victims, that this could happen -- or allegedly happen to children at this age is just a tremendous tragedy. and penn state has got to get to the bottom of it. and any university that finds itself in this circumstance has got to get to the bottom of it, find out why the reporting wasn't as it should be, and it's a crime if indeed it is proven. it's not a sport story.

us today. >> jim, thanks so much. >> ahead, former governor of new york george pataki is the latest republican to throw his hat into the presidential ring for 2016. so how is he going to stand out from this already growing pack? i'm going to ask him right after this break. i have type 2 diabetes. i started with pills. and now i take a long-acting insulin at night. i take mine in the morning. i was trying to eat right, stay active. but i wasn't reaching my a1c goal anymore. man: my doctor says diabetes changes over time. it gets harder to control blood sugar spikes after i eat and get to goal. my doctor added novolog® at mealtime for additional control. now i know. novolog® is a fast-acting, injectable insulin and it works together with my long-acting insulin. proven effective. the mealtime insulin doctors prescribe most. available in flexpen®. vo: novolog® is used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes. take novolog® as directed. eat a meal within 5 to 10 minutes after injection. check your blood sugar levels. do not take novolog® if your blood sugar

last year alone than in all eight years of george w. bush. look, we did not get into, we did not get into the economic problems we did because president obama was in office for two months. i mean, the ground was laid by the beside policies of george w. bush. and that came at the expense of the growing middle class and giving huge tax breaks to the billionaires. >> so to the question i asked you before, is the economy where you thought it would be when we had the stimulus plan and the summer of recovery, and right now where you thought it would be, honestly? >> i am not surprised that this is a longer bit of work than many of us would have hoped. it is not where any of us would have hoped it is and that we would want it to be. we need to give credit to the republicans in congress to defeat every jobs bill and slow down the economy and frankly, i'm a little bit surprised at just how successful many republican governors were at cutting the the public sector so that those teacher jobs, police jobs and firefighter jobs would be a drag on the otherwise nsistent private sector growth. >> at

forget that's a practice that was initiated by george w. bush. >> that's president obama getting in some laughs at last night's white house correspondent dinner. mr. bush and president obama are part of an exclusive and mostly cord y'all club. joining me now is michael duffy and deputy chief nancy gibbs. thank you both so much. let me start out with the relationship between former president bush and current president obama. what did you find out about that? >> well, you know, the interesting thing is from the minute that obama was elected, president bush made it clear that he wanted to help with the transition. he actually gathered the whole club together for sort of a membership initiation. and at that time president bush said, you know, we all want you to succeed. this is something we saw again and again and again in all the presidents that they looked at. they want to help the next guy. after that he's worked very hard not to make life more difficult for president obama. >> yet, michael, these guys are on different sides of issues. there's long-standing sort of friction between t
