7:10 am
aftermath of hurricane sandy. if you were going give him advice, what to do? >> sit down with mitch mcconnell and john boehner and lay out an agenda you can agree on. there's no other way to do it. the president took a beating last night. and the fact is, you have to sit down, then, with the folks on the other side and say, okay, let's see what we can agree on together. and i think the president needs to lead. i have been urging him to do that for years. he needs to lead and work with these folks. >> the executive order on immigration, lifting some deportations on his own. >> the president should look to work with the new republican congress. the people elected a new republican congress. and the president shouldn't look to go around them, he should look to work with them. >> what does this mean to you? you are looking at 2016. you had a big night last night. how does this shape your thinking about the presidential race? >> it gave me experience in terms of traveling around the country. for me and mary pat and the
