WASHINGTON (CNN) – After a hard-hitting Saturday Night Live skit that mocked President Obama for accomplishing "nothing, nada" so far in his presidency, could Obama, like former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, become synonymous with biting SNL impersonations of him?

In the latest installment of CNN=Politics Daily, Senior White House Correspondent Ed Henry and Senior Political Analyst Gloria Borger weigh in on SNL's latest Obama spoof.

Plus: The White House is struggling to control increasingly public infighting over the President's strategy in Afghanistan. Comments by General Stanley McChrystal and a push-back Sunday on CNN's State of the Union by Obama National Security Adviser Jim Jones illustrate the friction within the administration. Ed Henry reports on the differences of opinion within the president's inner circle and the Democratic Party.

Finally: An attack by the Taliban on a remote U.S. outpost in Afghanistan results in the deadliest day for U.S. troops in the country in more than a year. CNN Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr explains what happened.
