Although President Obama didn’t exactly eat humble pie after the Republicans won the House in last week’s mid-term elections, it does seem like he’s starting to lean towards making some big compromises with members of the GOP in the coming months.

Last night on 60 Minutes he seemed to open the door to making a deal on extending the Bush era tax cuts, even for some of the wealthiest Americans.  Maybe the drubbing Democrats took in the mid-terms made a difference for the President?

Takeaway correspondent Todd Zwillich helps analyze the different sides of Obama that we’ve seen before and after the mid-term elections.
