Veterans are political "jump ball"

Tim Tetz and Paul Rieckhoff on efforts to court the military vote and what veterans are looking for in the 2012 election.

"Nobody has got this locked up, and especially this year where neither candidate is a military veteran themselves.  So Mitt Romney and the president are both going to have to work hard and show how they've made an impact in the past, and how they're really going to get things like the backlog done," said Rieckhoff.
