Republicans look to rebrand and attract Latino voters with a possible new bipartisan immigration reform bill. CNN's chief political analyst Gloria Borger, Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher, and Republican consultant Margaret Hoover discuss.
Ahead of the debate, Gloria Borger and John King compare differences and similarities between V.P. Biden and Rep. Ryan. The generational divide is a factor, but they both have blue collar backgrounds. And both have an eye on the 2016 election.
As for who has the bigger advantage, the case could be made for either of them. "You could say Paul Ryan is younger, he has more passion, he has more energy. You could say Joe Biden is more experienced, 36 years in the Senate, he's the sitting Vice President, he's been on the stage before," says King.
The pressure for Ryan comes with the goal of maintaining the campaign's momentum after last week's debate between Mitt Romney and Pres. Obama. But as King points out, "Americans pick presidents, not vice presidents."
Political analysts David Gergen and Gloria Borger discuss what "the new Mitt" means for the next leg of the race.
Anderson Cooper and Gloria Borger talk to Michael Barbaro of The New York Times about what led to Eastwood's RNC speech.
Immediate reactions to Mitt Romney's RNC speech and the overall Republican convention from CNN's political team.
Mitt Romney revived the sensitive "birther" issue today while campaigning in his birth state of Michigan. Romney remarked that he and his wife, Ann, were born at nearby hospitals and stated 'I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born... No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.'
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
