Last Sunday, "60 Minutes" featured a joint interview with Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The only thing I got out of it was that neither leader had an answer that made sense on why the two parties couldn't compromise and pass legislation on important legislation on behalf of the American public.

Their main interest was complimenting each other on their matching suits and ties.
