On the eve of the 57th Presidential Inauguration, tonight Piers Morgan is in the nation's capital, where he'll host a special Sunday evening edition of his primetime program.
This evening the British television presenter welcomes a trio of political experts, as David Axelrod, Jim Messina and Stephanie Cutter all join Morgan in person to preview Monday's pomp and circumstance.
As Barack Obama officially begins his second term in the White House, the host asked Stephanie Cutter to reveal the ways in which the commander-in-chief had come up short during the first four years:
"Now you’ve won that second term, so you can perhaps be a little bit more honest about the, perhaps the areas where he could have gone further but didn’t or where he personally regrets not going further," suggests Morgan. "What would you say they would be for him?"
"I'm gonna point to his own words. He said this. He believes he could have done a better job communicating with the American people. You know we’ve been talking a bit about what we were dealing with four years ago when the president was taking the oath of office – the financial crisis, the economic crisis, this building a new administration – you know we had a our hands full. And I think trying to get all of that done and take the emergency steps that we had to take to shore up our bank, some things were lost in there," says the woman who served as Deputy Campaign Manager for the president's reelection campaign. "Ultimately, we believe that we’ve put good reforms in place to make sure we never have another financial crisis, the building blocks of a good economy, but the president believes he could have done a better job communicating that with the American people."
