Democrats are on the defensive after party strategist Hilary Rosen said in a TV interview on Wednesday that the stay-at-home, mother-of-five Ann Romney "never worked a day in her life."

Republicans have blasted the Obama administration, saying it bolsters their argument that the President's economic policies have hurt women more than men.

Rosen eventually apologized but even President Obama and his wife Michelle weighed in to criticize the remark. Polls show women favor Obama in battleground states, and Vice President Joe Biden said yesterday the right's "war on women is real."

Guest:

  • Karen Tumulty, national political reporter for the Washington Post.
