HuffPost's Howard Fineman Discusses Tim Pawlenty And Michele Bachmann On 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell' (VIDEO)

The Huffington Post's Howard Fineman appeared Monday night on 'The Last Word With Lawrence O'Donnell.'

Fineman spoke about Tim Pawlenty's video response to President Obama's 2012 campaign launch. Fineman explained, "He's [Pawlenty] got this young guy named Lucas Baiano, the filmmaker, who is on his own terms sensationally good at what he does. If you're looking for something that's halfway between a video game like Call of Duty, you know, and a movie trailer, and you want to try to make Tim Pawlenty exciting as a strong opponent to the President, that's the way to do it."

Speaking about another potential candidate from Minnesota, Michele Bachmann, Fineman observed, "if you're looking for people who are going to be in the Republican race who have a sense of how things work right now, I would put Pawlenty and Bachmann right up there."
