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. >> yeah, i think it is good for u.s. not only in terms of economics also in terms of foreign policy. trade can make a difference in strengthening us around the world. >> let's talk the 2016 presidential race. you have taken a risk, differing on issues. whether immigration, on gay marriage. on obama care. do you think the party's platform need to evolve on those issues? >> first of all, i am not for obamacare. i don't flavor it.

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. but also can help people who live in the shadows, mentally ill, drug addicted tell you who
else. the people in their 50s who faced job loss because their company left america or company shut down. they have become depressed. alienated. lonely. these are people that have to get opportunity to be trained so they can get work and support their family. i think this is a conservative message. >> let's talk about the poll numbers for a second. in your own state you are down. donald trump is beating you. people say you are one of the most experienced, most qualified. what do you need to do to break through. what's your strategy? is it frustrating for you, governor? >> my approval rating is well over 60% in ohio. i got like, very little negative. and very high positive. nationally, my positive ratings are very high as opposed to my negatives. i have a big ceiling because people don't know yet. look, you are all experienced. you know that places like ohio, like, iowa, and new hampshire, are launching pads. if i do well in new hampshire, you are going to have me back every day. so, that's. >> that's what we do. here's what i wanted to say.

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 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 s-sinumax liquid gels. dissolves fast to unleash max strength medicine. start the relief. ditch the misery. let's end this.
