­Thom talks with economist Paul Krugman in tonight’s “Conversations with Great Minds.” Tonight’s “Big Picture Rumble” panel discusses Romney’s “bold” call for 6% unemployment by 2016, the end of conservative populism and how it would take the average worker 244 years to match a CEO’s annual salary. In tonight’s “Daily Take” Thom wonders why poor white Americans favor Romney over Obama.
