administrations. there have been these kind of fights in the clinton administration, in the last george bush administration. and they have always wound up in court. and what usually happens is what always happens in court, things get delayed. it takes a long time to litigate these questions. they're complicated. it's not simple to resolve them. and based on the fact that we are now in june of an election year, based on how these usually work, i don't see any resolution before the election. so i think there will be a flurry of activity in the next couple of days, perhaps the next couple of weeks. but then it's going to wind up in court. and it really won't be resolved, i don't think, until after the election. >> let's take a look. i want to put up on the screen exactly how many times at least in recent history a president of the united states has exerted executive privilege. president obama now one, this is the first time. president george w. bush, six times, president clinton, 14 times. p george h.w. bush, one time. ronld reagan did it three times. should we conclude as some of the president

puts president obama right now as you saw at 51% approval. that's right about where george w. bush was in 2004. he was narrowly re-elected. president clinton had a solid amount of support back in 1996, as did president reagan in 1984. both were re-elected. approval ratings for presidents george h.w. bush and jimmy carter lagged below 40%, neither was re-elected. joining us now in our strategy session, two cnn contributors. democratic strategist donna brazile, republican strategist alex castellanos. donna, 51% is decent, but no means conclusive at this point within two months. >> absolutely, wolf. but, look, given the state of economy, the polarization in our economy, the fact the president is now above 50%, that should give chicago a little breathing room as th begin to plan for the fall debate and get ready for the ground game. but president obama has an enormous task over the next 45 #54 days. he has to continue to make his case to the american people, he has to of course get ready for the fall debates, but i think he's at really great shape. >> you agree? >> i think so. consider
