• Also on the Daily Beast, ABC’s George Stephanopoulos “Catches Up” with Lloyd Grove on his relationship with the Clintons and Rahm Emanuel, his appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” and what he says sets him apart from his Sunday show competitors- “My experience in Congress, in the House, in presidential campaigns, in the White House, I hope it’s one of the things that sets me apart on Sunday morning and in my day-to-day work—that people know that I’ve been there, that I understand the issues, that I understand the politics, that I’ve lived it. Not just talked about it.”

And after the jump, check out video on from Steve Kroft’s interview with President Obama, which aired on “60 Minutes” last night…
