7:15 am
nominee and his presumptive running mate together on "60 minutes." what is your take on that? >> what did i take from that moment? mike pence was very eager to be on the team and the body language was interesting to watch. these men don't know each other very well so when mike pence testified to what a good man donald trump was it seemed less evidence of long time spending together in a cabin and getting to know each other intimately. the theme is donald trump is a good person and his family will attest to that and don't worry about him when he is in the oval office. he has a good heart. donald trump interrupted very quickly to say he has a good head too. >> they are using excruciating and awkward marriage. >> if look at mike pence's time
7:16 am
in congress and what he has stood for pro free trade and very progressive on immigration, very supportive of a culture of civility in our politics. he would speak out on things like trump's proposal to muslim ban. the two couldn't have more opposite polar views. when you see mike pence sitting next to trump. he is signing up to pence's world view, it's a little awkward to watch. >> i notice that after trump chose pence, you tweeted and said this was disorienting because you had talked to pence in which he talked about his dislike of many things that trump espouse to. >> i've been a huge fan of mike pence over the previous years and encouraged him to seek higher office. i spoke to him during the primaries and let's say he had deep concept activiskepticism. >> do they share the same views
7:17 am
on social issues? >> no. mike pence has been one of the leaders on issues related to anti-gay rights and life issues. these are not -- this is not the area in which donald trump has been immersing himself over the years. they are a look at odds with the -- >> they have different styles but their vision is the same? do you think that is true, john? >> both the same in the sense they want to both win the election. that's the end of it. >> more agenda? >> well, john, what new voters does pence get trump? >> i think he gets some republican voters who were nervous. in talking to delegates and party folks who are here, they were very nervous coming in and what the pence pick shows is not just that donald trump has somebody around him and who might be able to help him understand some of the traditional republican views but also it sends a signal to them that donald trump is listening when they say, hey, you need to
7:18 am
do things that are more a part of the compulsory acting of running for president. you can't run-and-gun all the time. i think he shores up the party what he does going outward outside the party? that remains -- >> i would say this is -- this signals i think a major problem for the trump campaign. you see a lot in the vp pick a nominee in the higher command are worried about. what they are worried is unifying the republican party. here at the convention they are fighting in the primary. mike pence is a pick to calm republicans down. >> and it will do that? >> trump has about 75% of the polls and republicans supporting him and they need that number 90 percent and i'm not sure mike pence will do that. >> cbs news will have special coverage from the convention tonight at 10:00, 9:00 central. you can find continuous coverage all day on cbsn.

>> it's okay. >> it's probably obvious to people that our styles are different. but i promise you, our vision is exactly the same. >> would you answer that? would you go in -- >> one of the things i found out about this man he is appreciates candor. >> you would go in? >> i would like him to do that. >> would you listen to him? >> i might not apologize. you said apologize. >> i did. >> i would absolutely want him to come in. if he thinks i am doing something wrong, mike, i want want him to come in and say, really, that is okay. i accept that from my consultants ae and my people. >> i promise you when the circumstances arise where i have a difference on policy or on presentation, i would have no hesitation. my privilege to be vice president to walk into the president's office and close the door and share my heart and i know this good man would listen.
8:35 am
clearly this man is not a politician. he doesn't speak like a politician. >> he has done pretty well. >> he speaks from his heart. >> i think it's a good thing. >> he speaks from his heart. >> well, i speak from my heart and my brain, just so we understand. >> nancy cordes and major garrett are here with us in cleveland. >> good morning. >> let's talk about mike pence in "60 minutes" first. people are suggesting that it wasn't exactly perfect p.m. there was some little bit of uneasiness. this is a presidential candidate and vice presidential candidate. do you examine it to be the same? >> mike pence comes from a quieter and i think it's fair to say. >> not negative. >> not negative. he is just different. i can tell you paul manafort was very cleveland there was some sense of chemistry between them and the body language wasn't alarming. it was okay.
8:36 am
and that is a good place to begin as far as they are concerned because this is an evolutionary process for them both. >> that clip we just played where mike pence says he speaks from his heart and donald trump says, no i don't, i speak in my head. >> they are still learning each other. it's a process. >> but the vp doesn't overshadow the presidential candidate, i think everybody guess that. >> zero chance that happening in this case. >> just made the point that trump just made a point, look, if he thought i was doing something wrong, i would want him to come in and tell me. >> right. he may not have that proximity to trump as the campaign goes on. they may be in different place. one of the burdens for this convention for the trump team is make sure that social conservatives are energized by the pence pick he is not an afterthought. the trump people have to make it clear that pence is a player within the campaign. >> with social conservatives? >> exactly. if they don't, the positive vibe that pence initially created may
8:37 am
go away. >> different party unity do you think that is working so far? >> certainly a lot of conservatives who are very happy about the pick and to some degree this is what happens any time presidential candidate picks a nominee. there are always going to be at least a few issues that they disagree on, whoever hillary clinton picks, they have to explain some of the issues they disagree on. she disagrees with elizabeth warren and tom vilsack and tim kaine on different things. you have to say how are you two aligned on pretty fundamental issues you disagree. >> can you tell me who his second choice was for trump? >> newt. >> it was newt? >> yes and then christie right behind. those were always the final three. >> the reports this morning that chris christie was livid that he hasn't chosen. >> livid was the word? >> bummed out a couple of days ago? fair enough. yeah. >> he put himself out there pretty early on for donald trump. >> let's talk about tonight.
8:38 am
melania trump, donald trump's third wife will speak tonight and likely be introduced by donald trump. >> he'll be here to see it, yeah. we are not exactly sure if he is going to introduce her but he is going to be watching and probably speaking. >> irresistible for him to introduce her? >> most things involving a microphone and candidate are. >> pull a pence and introduce her the same way he introduced mike pence and talk mostly about himself instead of pence. >> 30 minutes of throat clearing before you get to the actual production? we will see. >> we talked a lot about this. what has to happen in this convention to make it a win/win for donald trump? >> this convention has to speak to the turbulent times of this country. this is not happening in isolation. this is not a convention like i've ever covered before. what the country is going through, the country is seeing, feeling and responding to, this convention has to speak to in a way that either persuades the country or maybe doesn't. we will find out that the leader of this party is going to be able to harness these times and
8:39 am
understand these times and led e the country in a different direction. if it fails to do this, the convention is a net negative. >> what does it tell you about the tone and image that the trump campaign wants to project, nancy? >> strength. strength i'm going to be tough. hillary clinton is weak. that is what you hear from donald trump over and over again. i think the challenge of this convention will be to put a little bit of meat on the bone. nobody expects his speech to be -- >> live at the convention center and testing the microphone while you're speaking. >> exactly. nobody expects this is a long policy prescription he gives on thursday night but he does have to show that he can go beyond the slogans and he can go beyond i'm going to be tough and i'm going to keep you safe. >> his point about he is aware of answer can speak to the fact that become a very turbulent world domestically and foreign. >> right. and that anxiety and strength are complimentary but you have to say something more than that. you have for give a larger, broader context. >> what you would do it?
8:40 am
>> right. >> i think the country is hungry for a positive vision. we have heard donald trump and hillary clinton define each other. he is terrible, she is terrible and she would keep us less safe and he would keep us less safe. i think someone wants to hear someone say here is how to make the country better. >> thank you both. >> you're welcome. >> thank you. ahead, one of the biggest names here in cleveland not called lebron. that's good. the cleveland owner, his name is dan gilbert and he's a big deal. he joins
