as the the governor you supported trade as long as workers are protected. do you support this bill? >> i think so, charlie. i haven't seen all the details. the senate is going to look at it. look, we want to have a strengthened group of people in asia to interface against the chinese. and trade can help do that. my concern about trade is when countries dump material into our country we wait for a year, two years before we get a resolution as to whether they cheated or not. so by the time we find out they dumped, people are out of work. i think we need an expedited process, somebody to stick up for the american worker. so free trade but no looking the other way. no bureaucratic slowdown. >> inclined to support. not only in terms of economics also in terms of foreign policy. strengthening us around the presidential race. on issues. whether immigration, on gay marriage. on obama care. do you think the party's platform need to evolve on those

3:40 am
legalization. it know it practical to think we are going to go take, 10 million, 11 million, 12 million people. how are we going to get them? ship them to the border and yell get out of our country it is not practical. by the way the folks who are here, many of them are creating a wonderful, stronger america. so, i think -- i think this can pass. see in this campaign we should stop talking about pie in the sky. and start talking about real solutions. i have been a reformer my entire lifetime. but i know huh to land a plane and get it done >> the question is has your party moved to the right so far that as a conservative, a long time conservative, it's too far right for you and you're too far center for them? >> i think i have a right to define what the party is, charlie. look, we have risen. i was up in second place in new hampshire. we have come down. the polls are volatile. we have the best organization in new hampshire. we are building out in iowa, south carolina. look if i win, i have a right to define what the party is. along the way i am defining what it is. a party of economic growth. and economic growth. not an end unto itself.

3:42 am
so, that's. >> that's what we do. here's what i wanted to say. you can build a campaign where you rise real fast, but you have no underpinnings we have seen this with a candidate who ran and dropped out. building the base to be sustaining. >> let's get you on foreign policy. the big headline in syria. what russia is doing. deliberately targeting u.s.-backed rebel groups. >> sure they are now. >> you're sure they are now. >> reading the press reports that they are. >> what would you do to stop president putin from doing that? >> i called for a no-fly zone, a week, two weeks ago, whatever it was. sanctuary for people. any body violates the no-fly zone. i didn't have red lines that i dent stand by. you come into the no-fly zone. you will suffer the consequences. >> you would shoot down a russian airplane? >> if anybody violates the no-fly zone. i don't believe in painting a red line. >> what is a severe consequence? >> you know what it is.
3:43 am
you got to be steady and you got to be calm. i served on the defense committee 18 years. everybody would understand what i am saying without having to use fiery rhetoric to get a headline the don't violate the no-fly zone. we should have been supporting the rebels we must suppot the opposition to assad, it is an iran, assad, russian deal. the russians are there. they're there because there was a void. but on top of it in the long haul, russia doesn't have the influence there that they are seeking in the middle east weft have to reassert ourselves in many ways, establishing a no-fly zone, helping the rebels. training people. creating a relationship with the kurds, with the sunni. we can make a big difference there. send multiple messages about the strength of the united states reasserting our leadership. >> who are you picking for your runningmate? >> are you available? you are looking -- you are smart, you look great, you're
3:44 am
articulate. would you think about it? >> i will give it some thought. >> you have to get married first. >> no, we'll take her. we'll take her. >> that would be a winning ticket. >> thank you. >> the cbs overnight news will be right back. yeah...just wait 'til we hit ten thousand feet. i'm gonna take mucinex sinus-max. too late, we're about to take off. these dissolve fast. they're new liquid gels. and you're coming with me... wait, what?! you realize i have gold status? do i still get the miles? new mucinex sinus-max liquid gels. dissolves fast to unleash max strength medicine. start the relief. ditch the misery.
