The soccer mom personified the swing voter in the last presidential election. This time everyone's talking about the "working waitress." Governor George W. Bush uses the example of the waitress to describe his tax cut. Vice President Al Gore attacks Bush's tax plan and recalls his own mother's working days as a waitress. Scott Horsley reports on how the candidates' competing tax plans would affect a real working waitress.
