Dickerson: Obama's Diversity Headache His Own Fault


CBS News Political Director John Dickerson argues that the Obama campaign's gender politicking opened him to staffing diversity criticism.

"If the president is being judged quickly on race and gender issues, it may be because he taught people to do that. In his campaign there was not a race or gender issue that the Obama campaign didn't jump on when it came to Mitt Romney and the Republicans, and so now he's feeling a little bit of that heat himself," Dickerson said on "CBS This Morning" Friday.

"This criticism is 'Look, Mr. President, you won your election based on the votes of women and minorities, so you should respect that in your naming of the cabinet picks," Dickerson explained.
