Analyst: Obama made a classic Washington gaffe - he told the truth

(CNN) – In just two weeks time voters will decide the fate of the Senate, the candidates are gripping and grinning, raising cash so they can inundate living rooms with TV ads.

SOme Democrats locked in tight races are running from President Obama as if he were a regrettable ex at a class reunion; it's not a relationship candidates want to herald or talk about.

But Obama keeps butting into the conversation, bringing up all the history, all the good times shared.

"The bottom line is, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress," Obama said in an interview with MSNBC's Rev. Al Sharpton.

Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden and The Weekly Standard's William Kristol discuss.
