Coming up, we'll check in with one of the millions of people who've been laid off in recent years. Former newspaper writer, T.M. Shine, long - and I mean long - months of unemployment could have made him bitter, but he decided he'd want to make his life about something else. He wrote about this for the Washington Post magazine and he'll be with us in just a few minutes.<p>But, first, we want to check in on the campaign between President Barack Obama and Republican president candidate, Mitt Romney.

His years running the private equity firm had taught him how jobs are created, a skill he would bring with him to the White House.<p>And what of the negative consequences from Bain's involvement in various companies? The layoffs? The plant closings? The outsourcing of jobs to China?<p>As Romney explained it, these weren't an issue. Those things happened after he had left Bain to go salvage the Salt Lake City Olympics in February 1999.
