defense spending, $8.6 billion for barriers on domestic spending, including nearly $220 billion to the program that provides food stamps over the next decade. the former republican senator from arizona, jeff flake, is a cbs news contributor. welcome, senator. we'll get to the budget in a minute. we know presidents' budgets are dead on arrival when they get to congress. i want to ask about something over the weekend. the conversation between two vice presidents. vice president cheney and pence. it was about foreign policy and national security. it was at the american enterprise institute's gathering. this is where the -- this is the republican think tank, or had been. vice president cheney was critical across the board about the trump administration's foreign policy saying it looked more like barack obama's. that's a bigger debate, isn't it? what did you make of that back and forth? >> i'm not sure how much it looks like barack obama's, but it doesn't look like republican foreign policy we've engaged in over the past couple of decades.
8:04 am
republicans have long believed in strong american leadership around the globe so this kind of protectionism on trade policy, isolationism on security policy basically going against your allies, that just is foreign to most republicans. so mike pence, while in congress, republicans were far more like dick cheney than the current trump administration. >> how is it -- >> sorry, john. >> with john bolt op, the national security adviser was from aei. that was putting on the weekend. so this tension exists even within the administration a little bit. but what the president would say is, hey, i was elected to get us out of these foreign entanglements. he said george w. bush should have been impeached for the iraq war. doesn't he have a constituency, too, which is why is america getting involved in all these messy business all over the world? >> not so much getting involved in these businesses but president trump was also very critical of barack obama for
8:05 am
pulling out ofprematy. and so doing or that's what he proposed to do initially in syria. he's now, greatfully, i think, slowed that down a bit. i think that certainly people don't want to get involved in foreign entanglements. but people value american leadership around the globe. and when you involve -- i was chair of the subcommittee on africa and we have a lot of involvement in africa. certainly after pepfar, president bush's program to alleviate human suffering, but it also helped us with security arrangements that we need to deal with al shabab and boca haram and when you isolate yourself, you -- the long-term implications s lpuics. certy m wo about where we are. >> what's the likelihood, if we stay on foreign policy, we see venezuela descend into chaos.

8:07 am
vote for impeachment of president trump. >> it's tough to see how it would. >> of all the democrats who have announced they're running and some who have not announced they're running yet, who do you think the republicans are most concerned about? >> well, the one that hasn't announced yet and certainly looks like he will, joe biden. >> chris coombs was here yesterday and said -- >> joe biden is -- i think that strikes fear in a lot of republicans. he can speak to those states that president trump won in the rust belt in particular. and he is seen as more of a centrist. he was a senator for 30-some years. he knows how to work with the senate, with the congress, and i think that that's certainly one that worries republicans. >> and you -- when you were here last time, i missed you last time, but you made it clear you were not thinking about running against donald trump. is there anybody in your party who you have heard is secretly considering it that you would like to share with us today? >> no -- >> that was sort of your wife's

wolf who became jan's friend. >> it broke my heart that a man who could love this woman so much couldn't remember, she could not remember who he was. >> a year and a half after jan passed away, mary nell and i got married. >> the hardest thing for me is people who don't know, but decide they can judge what i'm doing. >> we've got the 800 pound gorilla in the room, she's white and i'm black. >> so many people jump to conclusions and judgment, that don't even understand what alzheimer's is, and what it does to a person, to the patient, the alzheimer's patient as well as the caregivers. >> i so respect what you're saying, and respect you guys and what you're going through because it's a definition of love and nobody understands what a caregiver goes through.
8:36 am
i write for a couple hours every day, it restarts the brain. greg o'brien has alzheimer's, a lifetime journalist, he's written a book about what he calls embedded in alzheimer's. he and mary katherine raised three kids over they're 42 year marriage, she's gone from wife to caregiver. >> do you know what day it is? >> not sure. >> people think that care giving is a daytime event. >> oh, ah >> it's a -- it's an all night event. how do you sleep? how do you recharge? how do you rest? >> i say one eye open and one ear open. i live in a nightmare and a day mare, everything i have to do is to mitigate her everyday irrationality because she doesn't have that ability, maintain her dignity, and try to keep my sanity. >> this disease robs everything. it robs your brain slowly. like a sliver every day. my brain is like an iphone now,
8:37 am
it's still a sophisticated device, but it has a short-term battery. it pocket dials, and it gets lost very easily. >> oh. >> yeah. >> i try to say to people who have been critical of our relationship, you are one diagnosis away from knowing what your life will be. >> in our situation, even though greg is still functioning, we were the house that had the super bowl parties and the patriots and the red sox, and we were the house that everybody came to. >> the party house. >> i mean, we just did 30 or 40 people, summertime deck parties. he can't do that anymore. and so our socife hery close fr >> and people run away from you. >> you have to -- >> it's not comfortable sometimes to be around him. >> what do you want for mary katherine in the future? >> i want her to be happy.
8:38 am
i want her t marry a better person than me. and i want her to be at peace. i just don't want her to marry someone who's handsome. >> what you said greg is what my wife said to me, i want you to go on, because if you truly love someone, you don't own them. and what you said is the true, to me, expression of love. >> so greg asked if we would -- now that we know you, if we would watch out for you. and the answer is yes. >> yes. >> yes, definitely. >> resoundingly yes. >> so meaningful. >> so the question for everybody at this table is, havd to do it you're young enough to discuss this, by the time the person you love isia mer's, is already too late. >> it's such a very powerful
8:39 am
story, barry, that you're sharing and i think it's so important for people to consider it. a lot of people judge, as greg said, they judge and don't know, i know dan and i've met alex and she's really lovely and very dedicated to helping barbara get through all of this. i'm so glad you told their story. what was your take on them as a couple, the way that dan has devoted himself to barbara in a very, very huge way? >> well, i think that let's give credit to alex because she came into this relationship. >> yeah. >> she's now a co-caregiver, you know, he said he did it because he vowed that he would tell the truth. but there's one other thing that's important. the fact that he's willing to talk about it in this way means a lot of other people who were in this situatio oh god, i'm not alone. >> how important are the bonds? >> you too, thank you for doing that. >> yeah. >> he's taking care of barbara when she's way -- when the disease is really progressing.
8:40 am
isn't that unusual too? >> way past when i would have been capable of taking care of jan. i'd already made the decision to put jan into assisted living. but it's 24 hours. i cannot stress how much this is. you never really sleep. and i just have such admiration for his doing this. but i don't want him to do it to the point where he gets sick. >> how important, and how cool are these bonds? it seemed like it was, watching the piece between the couples. >> well, i think between dan and alex, and obviously between myself and mary nell, i think these are life-saving relationships, literally they keep you from falling under and dying. so i've talked about this for a very long time and i say to people, listen, you can't help the person who has theis bee we don have s help the person who's the caregiver because they're the ones who are struggling to survive. >> and don't judge when you're not in that situation, that's a very important message to send. >> we made a presentation one
8:41 am
time to a group, among them many professional caregivers and one came up afterward and said, you know, it never occurred to me, i only do this for eight hours and i get to go home. >> wow, we are tracking a dry cold front that will kick up the wins for us. we have breezy to windy conditions with a mix of sun and clouds. increasing mid to high level clouds with plenty of sunshine with warm temperatures as we eezy twind and then warm-up, especially by the weekend.
8:42 am

8:44 am
8:45 am
i'm happy. am i ridiculous? >> you like narrating your life. >> you know, there are psychological studies that say when people are happy they look desperately for things to make them unhappy. >> that was emmy and tony award winning actress christine baranski starring on "the good fight," she's best known for playing diane lockhart on "the good wife," and cbs all access "the good fight," baranski's character reflects on life while spending quality time with her husband kurt. what was happening in that episode? >> you could tell from my line a bliss in her newly refurbished bedroom and her husband has decided to cut back on his work
8:46 am
so he can commit himself to the marriage. and it's a perfectly happy and it's all downhill after that. we were doing a tv drama that happens to take place in the current political cultural climate. so how can anyone wake up and say i'm happy, and for that to last for long? so diane's life gets complicated rather quickly. she finds a little blond hair on his jacket and says, what's that? >> and she doesn't ignore it either. >> no. >> she confronts it, very interesting to see who that blond hair belongs to. >> yeah. >> but i love this diane lockhart character because you played her on "the good wife" for so long, i thought how will they make this work in another iteration. se seems to be having a really good time. can we describe that about you as well? >> oh, my gosh, for seven years i played diane lockhart, and she was a powerful woman who, you know, ran her own law firm. and she was always in the room where it happens she was
8:47 am
and you saw this woman, and i feel like the culture's finally caught up with diane lockhart. now there are six women candidates for president and we have nancy pelosi, just answer the questions. and then we have you saying i'm just going to sit here until you answer the question. it's a great time to be a woman of any age, but certainly a woman with experience, a woman with life experience, education, a sense of herself, confidence, and -- >> how are you feeling, christine? i look at you, you seem to be working harder. looking better. doan as an insult. i feel that too about myself. >> it's the best time in my life. i raised two beautiful daughters, i have three grandchildren. i lost my husband four years ago, but my life has continued in aam nowbe onen call sheein myself in the lead of a show,
8:48 am
making more money. and last year i did ""mamma mia!" and singing and dancing with meryl and cher, my life's pretty good. >> is what you're saying that people recognize all of that genius that you just described, or you have -- you don't have to push as hard as you would have 20 years ago? what do you think the difference is now? >> good question. >> the great thing is i never -- maybe because i didn't consider my beauty or my prettiness, i never was the pretty leading lady, i never defined my life by my beauty or my youth. that wasn't my commodity. what i had was, you know, a level of talent and ambition and ability to work very hard. i've just kept doing it. so i would say to young women don't think of, you know, don't think of your life in terms of your youth or how am i going to hold onto it for dear life? ats mostbls the hat as you cultivation of good work, your
8:49 am
character, your life experience, the people whose relationships you are comfortable with who are worth knowing. and i have all that in my life. >> well said. >> so i have -- >> where's the wood? >> i have a good life. >> people are taking notes. >> i marvel at this role, you didn't know what it was going to be and you just said i'll do it without a pilot. >> there's a good reason for that. we had seven happy years of doing "the good wife," and juliana carried that show on her back. about her story, she was the wife wronged by her husband who slept with a hooker and that brought down his political career. doesn't that sound quaint now? anyway -- >> less than five seconds. >> okay. but they conceived of a spinoff for this character. and it's worked out mainly because i wanted to work with those writers. >> you're a bad ass christine, ♪ oh, yeah
