With the end of the work week upon us, it's time for the Friday Flashback. It's a new segment that we'll air most Fridays, looking back at the week that was.

This week we remember Mitt Romney's 47 percent moment when video from his private fundraising event went viral. Plus, we check in on the poll numbers. A Pew poll shows President Obama with an eight-point lead. And the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll out today found President Obama leading in key battleground states.

All that and more, including our guests' favorite overlooked stories of the week.

Guests:

Molly Ball, staff writer for The Atlantic.

James Rainey, political columnist for the Los Angeles Times.
