ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Obama returned to Illinois where he served as state senator before launching his bid for the White House to urge for a better, more healthy approach to politics. In addressing state lawmakers in Springfield, Obama reflected on his years as president and said one of his few regrets was that he didn't do more to reduce the meanness in politics. He urged for less bickering among politicians and encouraged both parties to work together to advance issues important to the American people.
