President Obama addresses a joint session of Congress tonight. The last time that happened, it was President Bill Clinton in 1993, talking about the same two lightening rod issues: health care and the economy.
Back then, Marjorie Margolies Mezvinsky had just been elected to Congress. She was a Democrat from a mostly-Republican district near Philadelphia. After receiving a personal phone call from Clinton, she cast the deciding vote in favor of his controversial budget. She was not re-elected. Marjorie talks with Dick Gordon about her experience in contentious partisan debates and bitter town hall meetings - and how similar it all is to what she's seeing today.
