in a military commission. >> now we're seeing with afgh afghanist afghanistan, this is george bush all over again. but let me ask you this question, as a lawyer, as a legal analyst, does this matter as much as people are saying? i don't want to talk about the politics of it right now. how fundamental difference is there between the case that would have been presented in federal court here in new york city and the case that will now be presented in guantanamo before a military tribunal. in respects that are very different. a military judge, a military jury. in the united states we have civilian judge, civilian juries. that's a very different symbol. in terms of the actual procedures in place, it won't plo look that different. certainly symbolically a room full of military people looks very different than a jury from lower manhattan. >> you and i as lawyer, i started reading today a lengthy document that compared the rules. surprisingly few differences. that's why'm wondering if this is a mountain out of a mole hill about how the case will be handled? >> i don't know if a mountain ou

. right back with president george w. bush and not what he wanted to do. >> uh-huh. >> anyway, back to libya. when revolution hit tunisia and egypt, we thought the changes would happen overnight but libya is a wake-up call. this is a civil war. tonight, we hear word of a death toll somewhere in the thousands and the calls for no-fly zone may grow as we see more pictures of what happened today. the forces bombed the oil town of ras lanuf. meanwhile, ground fighting continued in other areas. we go now to tripoli where nic robertson has the latest on gadhafi's push to secure areas around the libyan capital. what's the latest? >> reporter: the government has a lockdown on the city making it more interesting walking a few hundred yards from the hotel and talk to people. they're angry at this government, they say they want to rise up and all of supporters are the ones with the weapons which is what we saw on sunday when they were out celebrating some victories the government said they had to that didn't occur and it's very clear the fear of the opposition here in tripoli is that the gadhafi

. joining me now are david frum, former speechwriter for george w. bush and krista freeman global editor at reuters. you just wrote a fascinating article about this phenomenon, what did you find the actual impact of globalization has been on the middle class? >> so -- thank you very much, eliot. my piece was based michael spence, a nobel prize-winning economist. he's an adviser to the chinese communist party on their five-year plan. he's someone who knows globalization and believes in it, right, but he did work on trying to figure out what is it doing to the american middle class? what he found is global capitalism isn't working for the american middle class. not only are the jobs going away, but the jobs that people have are moving into sectors where people are paid less. so those 07% who said things aren't working for us, they're right. >> mcdonald's hired 50,000 people, that's great news, 50,000 jobs, but eight bucks an hour and the new hires are at $24 bucks an hour and not the 48. david, you're dissenting on this. >> if the problem were global capitalism you would expect the problem sh

for republican nominees. bob dole, john mccain, even george bush. they were not true emoters. so it's not a hazard getting to the nomination. perhaps when you're up against somebody as gifted as president obama is, then it becomes a problem. i think when you look at what mitt romney has to offer, what they are banging on is that this country has to be about dollars and cents and jobs a year from november and they are banking that his credentials as a businessman and as a certain extent as massachusetts governor will stand him in good stead with republican voters. >> candy, he went for what i would call the economic jug gu lar. he has taken the economic model from europe. it's hard to imagine anything more critical. you're european. >> horrible. >> absolutely. >> but he went through the litany of legitimate economic data, unemployment, foreclosures, everything that has the public deeply concerned but did he given as that will touch a nerve that is sufficient? >> listen, i'll tell you two of the biggest applause lines -- and when you say answers, there were not details. but he did talk

the popular movement that george w. bush articulated. that makes sense. i'll give you the last couple seconds. you obviously thing i'm wrong. tell me why. >> i think bush is wrong. clinton was wrong. this guy is wrong. it's just not going to happen in the way you think it's going to happen, sir. even if it did, if we had democracy from more taina to jordan, those democracies would have to reflect popular opinion. what you would have is the greatest anti-israeli movement than you've seen in your life. israel is hated more than anything in the islamic world. >> michael, time runs short, you're going in a different direction about is israel. a whole different set of issues. i look forward to having that conversation with you in a couple days. michael, thanks for joining us, we will have that conversation down the road. >>> up next, with dominique strauss-kahn in jail, what's the future of the organization he ran and the impact on french politics? i'll ask fareed zakaria to dissect the fallout when we come back. ...and? it helped balance her colon. oh, now that's the best part. i love you
