much more mellow in the after period. we spent pleasant time with them out at the library. i'll never forget visiting them at their home in bel air with a young soldier who had driven me there. went up to the door, knocked on the dow are, president reagan opened the door, nancy was right behind him and the young soldier saluted president reagan and reagan saluted him back and then the soldier went back to the car. reagan closed the door and he said to me, is it okay if i still salute? i said mr. president, don't ever stop. nancy was just standing there beaming and smiling. she was an indomitable presence. she completed the man. >> what was it about him, colin? >> with president reagan you always had someone who had a clear set of goals. he knew what he wanted. communism is bad. we're good. if only i could get gorbachev to come out and see my ranch in

8:11 am
looking at this are distressed. i just came back from overseas. i was in africa. and they're scratching their heads. what is going on? can't they debate the issues? politics is arguing and there are debates but this nastiness, they really have to stop it. i hope with mrs. reagan's death and the mourning period we'll have for the next few days it might influence these gentlemen to stop with the nastiness, get on to the issues. the american people really want to hear about the issues. let's not make this a reality show. i know you know you're in trouble when jerry springer thinks it's over the top. >> we've heard you say you've endorsed barack obama the last two campaigns. but i forgot who you said you were endorsing this campaign. you said you're still a republican. i missed that news conference. who did you say? >> i haven't had a news conference yet, gayle, youen haven't missed anything. as i always do, i will watch the campaigns unfold, watch the
8:12 am
conventions and i always vote for the person who i think is best for america at that time. first and foremost i'm an american concerned about his country, deeply in love with his country and political party has to be set aside when i'm deciding who i'm going to vote for as president of the united states. >> general powell, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >> always good to see you, general. >> thank you. nutritional speed limits may sabotage your health care. dr. david agus is in our green room to show us how chemotherap,

i take calcium and i think i'm doing a good thing. >> calcium is a whole other story. yet a positive story showing calcium has a benefit. >> but you don't also have cancer, right? >> not that i know of! >> i think the important point is you may have some conflict between drugs you're taking to make sure you get somebody who knows. >> exactly. >> look at them and tell you. >> the pharmacists checks things with your prescription drugs but they don't with the supplements. when you go there your doctor or pharmacist, tell them here is what else i'm taking. you know, supplements, there is no data yet that these supplements have a benefit and they may. the studies haven't shown it yet. potential downside, not yet significant upside. we need to have these discussions to make sure. >> before we go, i know you knew nancy reagan. >> yeah. >> what would you like to say about her today? >> she is a hero in the medical community. she is one of the most prominent republicans out she announced we have to change our stance on m stem cell and change the outcome of alzheimer's.
