CBS News-President Obama On "60 Minutes"; 7 November 2010

Steve Croft interviewing President Barack Obama on the 7 Nov. 2010 broadcast of "60 Minutes"

(Story  reported by 60 Minutes Overtime Staff)

Two days after his party's defeat in the midterm elections, President Obama granted only one interview: with "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft. Here is their entire conversation from start to finish.

President Obama has had a long week. His party suffered a resounding defeat in the midterm elections, resulting in the loss of the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives and close call in the Senate. To top it off, he had to deal with "60 Minutes," waiting for him in the Oval Office with a long list of questions in hand.

Late in the afternoon on Thursday, two years to the date after his election as the 44th president, Obama sat down with correspondent Steve Kroft for a midterm chat. In the full interview, only available here on "60 Minutes Overtime," Kroft asked him about his regrets, the expansion of government under his leadership, his anti-business reputation, and whether the president has lost his mojo.
