With NewsHour regular David Brooks away this week, syndicated columnist Mark Shields goes toe-to-toe with Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson on The Rundown about press reports and other rumblings surrounding White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel.

The reported infighting is creating a distraction for the White House as it tries to push President Obama’s biggest domestic priority — health care reform — over the finish line.
