Cutter: Nostalgia inside Team Obama

Chicago (CNN) – Superstition inside the Obama campaign extended to the team's dinner Monday night, deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter told CNN.

On the eve of the president's last campaign rally in Des Moines, Iowa Monday, Obama's campaign staff watched the event from Houlihans, the same restaurant at which they convened before his final event in 2008. They even ate the same meal: chicken wings.

Mud flies: Romney and Obama teams fight over Bain charges

(CNN) – Following fierce accusations from top Obama aides over Romney's tenure as head of Bain Capital, the Romney campaign fired back Thursday claiming the Obama team was being "reckless."

In a call with reporters, Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager to the President, cited a Boston Globe report that Mitt Romney was in control of the private equity company he helped found three years beyond 1999 – the year the Republican candidate says he left the company to lead the Salt Lake City Olympics. She said he could face criminal consequences for misrepresenting his time at the company.
