our interests are in that nation? >> well, you stated it exactly. look, george bush was coexisting with the taliban. they aren't very nice people. a lot of countries are run by people who aren't very nice. but we don't go around overallowing them all. we couldn't do it, it wouldn't work, it would be counterproductive. we went into afghanistan because osama bin laden, having murdered a lot of africans in the '90s then murdered a bunch of americans. and we said to the afghan government, you cannot allow this man to use your country as a base and they refused and that's why we went in. we went in to get him and he's now gotten. >> i want to get this, you're distinguishing between al qaeda and the taliban. this is a distinction that has been lost to a certain extent. >> george bush became president on january 20th, and until september 11th, we were not trying to overthrow the taliban regime. they were both a part of the same time. >> now you were privy to a lot of confidential information that you cannot share with us, but what is the best estimate you have of how many al qaeda members

get, you know, warm up to. so why him? she apparently had george cloob clooney at her beck and call, john cusack, and she ends up with anthony weiner. >> well, you would know better than me what women look for. but i think a sense of humor. he's noted for that. and his intelligence. not evident lately but of course over the years. he's courted her actively. when he met her in the 2008 presidential campaign when she was by hillary clinton's side so long, he met her there and actively pursued her and obviously was victorious because 11 months ago, bill clinton performed the vows, officiating at their wedding. >> and that is what was so interesting to me. what happens when all of this breaks? she's not by his side but we hear she caws hillary clinton. he calls bill clinton. and, you know, this is a woman who has been with hillary clinton through the lewinsky scandal. hillary clinton goes from first lady of arkansas to the secretary of state of the united states. is she a person do you think that has political aspirations of her own? >> well, one would think. actually, she told the "vog

being part of the intellectual engine of the george bush foreign policy, and in the past few years you have been very crate cal of president obama's handling of foreign policy. and yet when i look at the two foreign policies, i see more continuity than change. so do you disagree with me about that? isn't president obama's foreign policy right now very close to president bush's? >> i think in some key respects it is. and i think that it reflects president obama coming around to accepting a number of positions that he had not only not accepted, but had pretty severely criticized when he was a senator and a presidential candidate. for example, the concept that the terrorism problem has to be dealt with as a war. and that's in some ways the most significant decision that president bush made in the hours after 9/11. and it was something that senator and candidate obama severely criticized. but now has come around to. >> if you would agree with me that president obama is following essentially the outlanes of president bush's foreign policy, then is question is it working? is it succeeding? l

military threats we faced before. >> daniels was george w. bush's budget chief and they called him the blade. in indiana, he's turned to state state deficit into an $800 million surplus, irking some conservatives by raising sales and cigarette taxes. if he were still in washington, taxes, as in tax reform, would be on the table. let me talk about the republican budget proposal, because as you know very well, it takes on medicare. but it doesn't do anything on the tax side. >> here's what i think about taxes. we need a lot more tax revenue, revenue, dollars in hand. we'll only get them if we have a period of strong growth. question is, how can you change the tax system to make it more pro growth and more pro jobs and we all know what the answer is. wipe out a lot of the preferences which incidentally tend to favor upper income people, and lower the rates, make a lower, flatter tax system that -- with far fewer distortions of economic activity. you know, people who are -- >> that's what the deficit commission suggested and some republicans including paul ryan did not sign on to that.
