During a 2012 campaign speech, President Obama said his re-election would break the "fever" of partisan fighting that was keeping the Capitol at a standstill. But deep into Obama's second term, Congress is still deadlocked, and political commentator David Gergen says the public has lost interest in the Obama White House. The four-time presidential advisor joins us to discuss the current state of national politics and the future of the Republican Party.
