Mother Goose explains that to write really good nursery rhymes, you need conflict - when someone wants something or needs something very badly. Just then Alan comes out with 13 fresh cookies that he made for a friend's birthday. Cookie Monster is having a hard time resisting them and Mother Goose sees the conflict. She starts writing and gets stuck rhyming "plate," but Abby comes to the rescue with the word "eight." Mother Goose continues with her rhyme, as Cookie Monster gobbles up the cookies, but this time she can't figure out a rhyme for "done." Once again, Abby calls out a rhyming word - "none!" Elmo feels upset that Abby keeps getting the rhymes faster than him, but Mother Goose assures him that she has two more to come up with. The next rhyme is about Super Grover trying to open a stuck pickle jar for Alan, and Elmo rhymes the next word. But Abby gets the one after that, and Elmo gets more upset. He and Abby get into an argument about it. Their conflict gives Mother Goose an idea for her third rhyme, which is about Elmo and Abby wanting to help, but ending up fighting instead. Together they come up with the rhyming words Mother Goose needs, and they realize that arguing is silly because they are both best friends and good rhymers. duration 58:46   STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Washington Week [#5212H] The political fallout continues following the release of a secretly recorded tape where Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appears to disparage Americans who receive government assistance. Mr. Romney said that the 47% of Americans who support President Barack Obama think the government should take care of them and that many believe they are "victims." Romney added, "'I'll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.' While he said he regretted his choice of words, Romney went on to say that he knew those "dependent on government" would not vote for him in November.
    In 2008 Barack Obama was also secretly recorded at a private fundraising event. Then candidate-Obama said rural voters in Pennsylvania and other small towns "cling to their guns or religion." The comments were politically embarrassing but happened during the heated primary race against Hillary Clinton not the general election.
    Several new polls show President Obama has a slight edge over Romney among likely voters and a moderate lead in a number of key swing states. But could the candidates' performances at the upcoming presidential debates change the course of the race? Joining Gwen Ifill with insights and analysis of the race for the White House: John Dickerson of Slate Magazine and CBS News, Gloria Borger of CNN, John Harwood of CNBC and The New York Times, and Sam Youngman of Reuters.
