Carville: Obama campaign 'very encouraging' over past three or four weeks

In 1992, James Carville, who ran Bill Clinton's winning presidential campaign, coined the phrase "It's the economy, stupid."

Twenty years later, Carville's new book, co-authored with Stan Greenberg, emphasizes the importance of another factor influencing the election; the middle class.

Carville and Greenberg join Starting Point this morning to discuss the book, "It's the Middle Class, Stupid!."

The two advisers also discuss education and student loan reform and weigh in on recent polling about the 2012 election.
