Obama says it 'feels bad' seeing party lose

President Barack Obama says it feels bad to see his Democratic allies lose their House seat in droves _ and makes him question what he could have done differently.
The president says that the toughest thing for him about the outcome of Tuesday's midterm elections was seeing "really terrific public servants" who won't have the opportunity to serve anymore.
In addition to the sadness of seeing them go, the president says he wonders if he could have done something better or different.
Obama said he's spoken with some of the losing candidates and they've been "incredibly gracious" and assured him that they don't have regrets over unpopular votes they took.
Obama spoke at a White House news conference Wednesday.
