mark: i am mark halperin. campbell: i am campbell brown. your march madness is about to get a blast from the past. step into our delorean as we go back to a simpler time, a time before pope francis when we still cared about what mitt romney had to say. he is talking to katie couric and offering advice republicans.
listen to this. >> what you see are the clintons behaving badly. it is always something with the clintons. they have roles which they describe before they get into something, and then they decide they don't have to follow their own rules. i will be talking to one nominee about the mistakes i made an suggesting things here she should do differently than i did. that's pretty straightforward. campbell: you what it said it differently? >> i don't think i've lost any votes. campbell: is it good to have met romney hovering over this campaign. mark: he can rev up the base. there is something here that makes me a little nervous with those answers that he might make
the prospective nominees nervous. campbell: i think he is nothing but outside -- upside. he was demonized during his campaign. when you saw him your member the documentary, they took him outside of the campaign context. mark: the downside is that if he does not like the person who is heading to be the nominee and he intercedes, that could throw the planets alignment off. campbell: there are voters who have buyers remorse now. his presence in the campaign reminds people that. he's an adult. mark: i agree with all that. let's do the time warp again. let's listen to hillary clinton tell a story how a meeting in atlantic city about a formative moment of her childhood. hillary: we were all bullied. that was part of growing up and
part of what we are expected to do. i remember when i was a little girl i got into a fight with the girl across the street. i went running into the house and my mother literally met me at the door. i was five years old. she said, there is no room for cowards in this house. you don't do your child any favors by trying to cushion that boy or girl from everything that might happen that they don't learn what they are capable of doing. mark: rev up your vintage delorean, we have got the political equipment -- equivalent of a solar eclipse. at the same time she was telling the story, mono lewinsky -- monica lewinsky was talking about cyber bowling -- bullying.
monica: at 22, a few of you may also have taken wrong turns in full and in love with the wrong person, maybe even your boss. unlike me, your boss probably wasn't the president of the united states of america. the question i have been asked the most is, why? why now? why was i sticking my head above the parapet? you can be between the lines. the answer has nothing to do with politics. the answer was and is, because it is time time to stop tiptoeing around my past time to start living the life of a program, time to take back my narrative. mark: she says this has nothing to do with politics but how dangerous is it for bill and hillary clinton? campbell: i don't think she will be hovering over the campaign. i don't know how she stays
relevant beyond this moment. young people don't remember who she is. given the message she is delivering let's be nicer to each other on social media, it's totally absurd angry people now have a distribution channel they never had before been -- before. now they have thousands of followers. mark: you think it plays no role for the clintons? she got a tad talk gay. -- ted talk ig.gig. campbell: do they have a sophisticated operation that can respond? mark: you think she has details that could hurt the clinton campaign question mark -- campaign? i will agree with you on this she is the least of their
worries. campbell: you are right. ok, we are still trying to figure out where the potential republican candidates stand on the gop budget proposals before in congress. we asked the campaigns and aggregated some other on the record responses, and here's the abbreviated summary. jeb bush calls it an initial effort. lindsey graham once more defense spending. rand paul once less. we got a lot of no comments and nine answers from chris christie and -- black republicans reluctant to take a firm stand? mark: one of the worst things in politics today, when in the major debates of our time, how we should spend our money and what we should cut, and not one of these candidates are actually stepping up and saying here's what i like, here's what i don't like, and why. it's been for the country and
the republican party, because they should be strong and brave and take positions. campbell: would you be doing the same thing? what do they have to gain? for hillary clinton, it's all upside. mark: they are going to have to say eventually what they believe in. why not get credit for courage? look at the proposals and say what they like and don't like. i understand the downside. i don't like it one bit. this is a major debate. they should step up and say what they think. campbell: i think they are a long way from having to do it why do it now when they can give you the nonanswer and get away with it? mark: after the break, a focus group so sexy that they like the short on hbo. the good news and bad is about jeb bush and hillary clinton coming up next. ♪

someone who would vote for jeb bush? >> i don't think the bushes are bad people. if they were the only candidate i guess i would vote for them. mark: that's a ringing endorsement. >> if he had come -- become a candidate before, yes. but after his father and brother, he won't have a chance. mark: anybody think he has a good chance? anybody think he is the front runner? probably not. who knows who scott walker is? >> he's done a really great job in turning around the economy in wisconsin. loosening up regulations, limiting the power that unions may have in that state. >> what he has done with regard to business is reduced taxes and
other things, and everybody says it will not work. the state has done very well. business has improved. revenue has come in. i think the budget has flipped from a negative to a positive. that's where i stand from a business standpoint. mark: he did not graduate college, does that concern you? >> no, because a lot of idiots came out of college. mark: rand paul? >> i almost didn't want to admit it in the beginning, however the more i hear -- and i guess that makes me seek out when he is talking and hear him as much as i can. it goes back to the electability. i feel he is extreme. mark: does anyone like her not like the fact that his work with democrats in congress? >> on some things you have to work together to get things done. mark: chris christie? >> he speaks up.

>> i really like her. i watch one of her speeches. she lost her doctor to drug addiction. she is also a cancer survivor. she feels it is important to equalize men with women. mark: is it that she is a woman candidate? >> absolutely. i despise clinton. she has the police, can speak well, and being a woman is a plus for me. mark: i want to ask you about the three people. tell me your sense of if this is a choice -- are they establishment or anti-establishment candidate. governor bush. >> establishment. mark: governor walker? >> anti-establishment. >> probably anti-establishment.
>> anti-establishment. mark: anybody see him as part of the establishment question mark -- establishment question mark -- establishment? mark: who thinks hillary clinton will be the democratic nominee. >> i think that is good for us. mark: you don't think she will be the nominee? >> this old thing with her e-mails doesn't make sense. mark: how do you figure out who is electable? >> if you have to define yourself as being different to stand out, the problem is they end up being at the extremes. we need some any closer to the middle, not the survey in the middle. i would look somebody -- for
somebody conservative leaning but not somebody so extreme that their unelectable. mark: a lot of interesting voices. what are your takeaways? campbell: if you do the same focus group this early, you might've gotten the same results. you don't know -- primary voters tend to be anti-establishment. the establishment candidate often gets the nomination. mark: a lot of them thought that scott walker had improve the economy. campbell: his battle with unions? mark: the democrats will say why it's hillary or bust, next. ♪
