Shirley MacLaine on the record

Shirley MacLaine’s career spans six decades - on stage, in the movies and as an author detailing beliefs on everything from reincarnation to life on other planets.

This weekend she will be one of the stars receiving the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors for their contributions to American culture.

MacLaine recently sat down with CNN Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger. In the interview she said the honor is “more of a life appreciation award," and what a life she has had.

In the interview MacLaine recounted not only her amazing acting career, but also her involvement in politics and her views on life.

She also recalled her old pals, including the infamous "Rat Pack" rogues Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin as well as President John F. Kennedy.

Romney campaign aims to recalibrate around economic message

Washington (CNN) – In response to sagging battleground polls and criticism from some Republican party insiders, the Romney campaign – as part of its recalibration – intends to get more specific with its economic message, trying to reach out to the increasing number of voters who believe Mitt Romney doesn't understand their problems.

In interviews with senior Romney advisers and outsiders close to the campaign, the emerging strategy appears to boil down to a simple point: "We need to reassure Americans that Romney can fix things, and he (President Obama) can't," says one campaign insider. "Voters already believe Romney has a better chance of fixing the economy. We have to tell them just how it will be better for them."

Epic failure by Washington sets us adrift

By Gloria Borger, CNN Chief Political Analyst

Editor's note: Gloria Borger is CNN's chief political analyst, appearing regularly on shows such as "AC360˚" "The Situation Room," "John King, USA" and "State of the Union."

(CNN) - There are plenty of ways to game the upcoming Supreme Court decision on health care reform, and they've all been said: President Obama loses in court, he wins with his base. Or it's a severe blow, potentially fatal. Or Republicans benefit if they win, because they were "right" all along. Or the GOP loses, because it has to figure out what to offer for health care instead.

And so it goes.

But there's something else going on here, and it's more meaningful than some short-term political skirmishing. This Supreme Court case is the Waterloo for political polarization, because it underscores something we should have known all along: Great changes in national public policy should never be erected on slender partisan majorities.
