Timing is running out to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff. In their first face-to-face meeting in nearly a month, President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner met Sunday at the White House to try and hash out a proposal. They need to figure it out ASAP to allow enough time to actually draft legislation and get it passed. Here's a look at the headlines shaping tonight's Last Word rundown:

  • Obama decries right to work proposal during trip to Michigan
  • White House: ‘Nothing specific’ from Republicans on revenue in fiscal cliff deal
  • If Hillary runs, it's 'virtually impossible' she loses nomination, Gingrich says
  • Andrew Cuomo ducks on Hillary Clinton in 2016
