Leading the “NOW” rundown today: Obama and the Super Committee.
With just days left to reach a deal, President Obama tells NBC’s Chuck Todd that it’s time for the Congressional Super Committee to “bite the bullet” and get a debt deal done. But it looks like whatever they agree on, the tough decisions about taxes, will be pushed until next year.
And speaking of Congress, a report that several lawmakers are getting a legal pass on insider trading, has us asking if maybe this is something that should be illegal.

And Herman Cain’s wife Gloria speaks…finally! And she says her husband “totally respects women.”
Tune in at 12pm ET today for the first ever “NOW With Alex Wagner!”
