Obama: I have to work harder to build consensus

President Barack Obama says he will have to work harder to build consensus in Washington following midterm elections that ensured divided government.
Obama said that while he is not naive about the difficulty of building bipartisanship, the American people don't want politicians to fight the recent political battles for another two years. The president says he still believes there is hope for civility in politics.
Obama spoke at a news conference in the White House East Room the day after elections that saw his party lose control of the House and lose seats in the Senate.
