Top 4 Political Stories of the Day

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that China had probably taken advantage of his absence from a summit in Asia this week and he warned that the government shutdown and fiscal debate were hurting U.S. credibility abroad. WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner offered hints of possible compromise but also traded heated rhetoric Tuesday, a frustratingly inconclusive combination that left the eight-day partial government shutdown firmly in place and the threat of an unprecedented national default drawing closer. Keeping up the pressure on the GOP, President Obama called a press conference Tuesday to again call on Congress to end the government shutdown and raise the debt-ceiling - and to accuse "extreme" members of the House of Representatives of extortion. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democrat Terry McAuliffe has opened a wide lead over Republican Ken Cuccinelli, a Tea Party favorite, in the Virginia governor's race amid public disapproval of the federal government shutdown, according to a Politico poll.
