george w. bush in the white house, the american people were hungry for your message of hope and change. so after seven years of the obama presidency, do you feel you're responsible for aertain hunger out there for the message that donald trump is putting out? >> the message that donald trump is putting out has had adherence a lot of times during the course of our history. up kn you know, talk to me if he wins and then we'll have a conversation about how responsible i feel about it. but i'm pretty confident that the overwhelming majority of americans are looking for the kind of politics that does feed our hopes and not our fears that, does work together and doesn't try to divide us, that isn't looking for simplistic solutions and scapegoating but looks for us buckling down and figuring out how do we make things work for the next generation. >> so when you stand and deliver that state of the union address, in no part of your mind or brain can you imagine donald trump standing up one day and delivering a state of the union address? >> well, i can imagine it in a saturday night skit. look,

dole or george w. bush but the newt gingrich victory signified a grass roots uprising taking over the party in south carolina. is there anything to that? >> that's the big question. do we go back 50 years to that genteel politics and statesmanship in south carolina or do we go to recent history of people like newt gingrich winning here in south carolina. i don't think the question has been answered yet. what i do know is that south carolina is twice as big as new hampshire and iowa combined, what happens here will be very important as we go forward in this race. all the campaigns have a lot of work to do and i think there are just a few tickets out of south carolina. >> do you think the crowded field, we always talk about how new hampshire is going to winnow the field, new hampshire and iowa winnow the field, chris christie is out of this race now but pretty much everybody else came down to south carolina. does that play to trump's benefit the longer it's divided like that? >> maybe, but i think new hampshire instead of giving clarity this cycle certainly expanded the field again. the

. thank you. bringing in form rp white house communications director for george w. bush, nicolle wallace. and nbc news political director and moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd and steve kornacki. chuck, did this debate do anything to change the status quo at least at the top of the pack? >> if you're talking cruz and trump, not really. they had a bit of a bromance last night. when you look at sort of the third lane here, trump has his own lane and cruz is becoming the evangelical. the establishment lane where rubio is sort of the candidate on the rise, he took incoming last night. i think he handled himself well doing it. we were reminded he has got probably the wrong stance on immigration to -- for where this republican party is. he may be able to overcome it, but he'll have to. jeb bush had his moment with trump and chris christie had moments. the establishment lane got more crowded. that would be the one part of this that shook up. the top of the polls, cruz and trump one and two through the holiday break but there is a jumble now. christie could make a move -- the christie mov

how george w. bush responded in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 saying we are not at war with islam. contrasting that with what you haer from republicans now. is there room in this republican debate, in this republican field for the kinds of things that george w. bush was saying just a decade ago? >> i feel like sometimes you shift the debate so far over to one side that the middle ground suddenly becomes a very unconventional middle ground. so at this point when you have someone like marco rubio who's saying maybe we shouldn't do a database but we should be monitoring mosques or places where they are having un-american activities. that rhetoric may be five, ten years ago would be considered a little bit uneasy but now it seems almost centrist. so the short answer is i'm not entirely sure. you do see people like jeb bush coming out and saying, let's slow down. but not totally. then people like john kasich who is the moderate governor in this case. you wonder where is the middle ground on this debate. >> the poll numbers, donald trump is inching up so carson's falling back but you lo

back to in part of george george's campaign. but the benefit that cruz has with so much focus on donald trump right now, it's increasingly made ted cruz an affable figure in the campaign. i don't think you'll see as much potential fighting between trump and cruz where you may where the real substantive policy issues exist, like trump and marco rubio. >> let's talk a little bit about rubio. in the past consensus has been that he has done very well in debates, however, that hasn't necessarily translated into coming into the first tier. >> and that's kind of the rub, right? you look at how his -- he's gotten some momentum. you've seen that post-debate boost in the polls but it hasn't necessarily translated into voter support on the ground. now, the campaign sense is slow and steady, play the long game, there's still 48 days to iowa. the strategy, i don't think you're going to see much of a change. i agree, i think the rat have ratcheted up the rhetoric, really pushed each other hard to point where both have i oted to attacking the other. >> and chris christie is back in the race as

struggling in the polls? with me now, leslie sanchez, a former executive director in the george w. bush white house. leslie, great seeing you. >> great to see you. so what should carson's strategy be tonight? >> carson has a lot off questions he's going to be responsible to answer. i think that vulnerability is that people are starting to think he's not necessarily forthcoming, he's not as truthful as people had thought originally he was. so he's going to expect pointed questions, he needs very clear answers and he needs to continue to show why he has solutions that can move america forward. i think that's the biggest part that's been missing other than the allure of a nice kind of agreeable candidate, where is his leadership especially on some of the big issues of the day which is going to be immigration in this debate. >> and also that's i guess the question i would have for you, what is trump going to do with those questions? i mean the economy, but also immigration. >> as much as these candidates tonight are going to -- are going to want to talk about the economy, moving america for

bush name still in south carolina. george w. bush, obviously, winning here in 2000 when he went on to beat john mccain after mccain lost in that 2000 primary. so, at this stage, it's not totally clear exactly how senator graham could help bush win here. it's possible that the forces of the insurgent candidates are going to be so intense that there's no way to overcome it. but senator graham is hoping he can at least make a difference. and one issue, jose, that i know you've obviously talked a lot about is immigration. and senator graham worked very hard on that gang of eight immigration bill that provided a path to citizenship. that's something marco rubio has, of course, repudiated as he's run for president. that hasn't sat very well with senator graham. jose. >> kasie, stay with me while i bring in steve kornacki. a lot of people are saying, well, what's the importance of senator graham endorsing bush or anybody else he was unable to get out of single digits, wasn't able to clear, though, i guess the 2% mark ever. why is this important? >> well, i think it's potentially important wi

morning british are finance minister george osbourne filling in for prime minister david cameron dismissed calls for trump to be banned from the uk. that was twwhat a petition was asking for. >> frankly, donald trump's comments fly in the face of the founding principles of the united states and it is one of the reasons why those founding principles have produced such an inspiration to so many people over the last couple of hundred years. and i think the best way to defeat isis is to engage in a robust democratic debate and make it very clear that his views are not welcome. >> nbc's keir simmons is live in london with more. good morning. so trump's words are really resonating elsewhere? >> yeah. what you are hearing there was prime minister's questions -- happens once a week in the house of commons. two normally be the prime minister david cameron. instead, this week it is george osbourne, the chancellor of the equivalent of the treasury secretary but basically the second-most powerful man in britain. he really is the prime minister's right-hand man. you'll know that those prime minister's

feeling emboldened? what happened last week in south carolina was the comments about george w. bush, the comments on the eve -- we've been saying this for six months, he's finally gone too far, this will watch up with him. but really the last week seemed like the ultimate test of can donald trump go too far. >> you look at who he was fugd with, the pope, george w. bush. >> i forgot about the pope. >> steve. >> you know it was a big week. when you look at all of those fights it was a rough week for donald trump and to still pull out the margin that he pulled out in south carolina is really a testament to the loyalty of his support, something that you hear him talk about frequently. something else that he did is he shifted the attack on ted cruz, obviously he has the ineligibility argument that he has been pushing but then he also kept saying he lies so much and calls himself an evangelical. he's questioning faith, a little there, exactly what he yelled at the pope for doing but he's also saying, look, ted cruz is a liar and as much as exit polling showed that people thought donald tr

rating higher right now than president obama's and president george w. bush's, but trump sees an opening. >> i think he is fair game because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled to put it mildly because of all of the things that she's talking to me about. >> while it's the party's front-runners feuding for now, bernie sanders argues his policies would be better for his supporters. >> the real issue is the fact that donald trump thinks we should not be raising the minimum wage. he believes that wages are too high. >> trump taking offense to that on twitter, where he's also attacking his republican rivals. as 2015 comes to a close, all eyes on 2016. while new hampshire is the focus today for donald trump, some of his rifle vals -- in iowa, it's cruz who is leading the pack, number one there, eamon. the question is how cruz could do after a strong showing in iowa here in the granite state. >> hallie jackson is live in nashua, new hampshire. appreciate that update. let's turn to steve kornacki. what struck me the most out of that editorial is how scathing it was.

george w. bush in 2000 before 9/11 talked about how we needed to have a more humble foreign policy. if that's the case, do you also think that we've spent too much on defense spending and that sequestration is actually a good idea and we should use that money that we're not spending on the pentagon to rebuild our infrastructure? >> well, i think we have to really rebuild our military. that doesn't mean we have to use it. i think we've used our military far too much on certain things, and certainly, we haven't used it very well. but i think we have to rebuild our military, frankly. i think our military is in shambles. i look at general odierno saying we're least prepared as we've ever been as a country, and probably today we have to be the most prepared. you know, the world hates us. they truly hate us. so, i'm very, very pro and very strong on the military, but i'm also strong on rebuilding our infrastructure in our country and rebuilding our schools and taking care of our educational systems. >> how do we pay for that? >> we've spent $5 trillion in the middle east, okay? >> right.

it is no republican has won with the majority of the latino votes. right? george w. bush won twice. got 44% of the latino vote which was at the time a high water mark. do republicans need latino voters in order to win? >> well, absolutely, they do. mitt romney got 27% of hispanic vote and that was one of the things that helped doom his campaign. so what we're seeing so far from the republicans i don't really see much that appeals to hispanic voters right now. but the question now becomes how important is that hispanic vote? the numbers keep going up. the hispanic electorate just keeps skyrocketing, up to 27 million, up from 7 million -- potential voters, eligible voters. the question is whether they get out there. and because of that stat you just showed that nearly half of them are millenials, we know very well that young people don't vote. so the question is can they get mobilized, can they get out there and have an impact. >> what kind of impact can young people have in this election? >> well, for any group, they need something to get mobilized. we saw that to some degree during

george w. bush. ed, after watching the debate, it appears as though sanders played to his base, hillary clinton played to her strengths, which is the smarter political option, do you think? >> i think they both did what they had to do. bernie sanders, i think, is going to stay in the race and be a relevant factor all the way through iowa, new hampshire, nevada, south carolina. he displayed not great debating skills. he didn't look all that presidential. i mean, hillary clinton dwarfed the other four candidates when it came to looking presidential. but bernie gave his base enough to hold most of them in check. he may have lost a few on the gun issue. i didn't know he voted five times against the brady bill. that's really shocking to me as a democrat and as a progressive. but hillary clinton did a great job. and you know, in debates, people look at particularly for executive offices, mayor, governor, president -- people look at the field and they say, who can i imagine as president of the united states. and clearly the person who portrayed himself or herself as the most likely to

dealing with a serious problem. we have failed and george bush has failed. do i think this is the best thing for any governor to do? no. >> now a lot of people looked back at that moment in the fall of 2007 going into that debate, hillary clinton had a very healthy lead over barack obama nationally and in the early states. the momentum in that race began to shift to barack obama after that debate. a lot of people think that the sort of evasiveness that she showed in dealing with that question had something to do with obama's subsequent rise. now what hillary clinton's tried to do in the run up to this debate, she's tried to prevent those sorts of opening, an issue like the keystone pipeline. you could see a few weeks ago that was something they were going to press her on in this debate. she's now taken a position -- she's against it. the tpp, transpacific partnership, she had no position, now she does. she says she's against it. she's rolled out a wall street reform package. that's something you can expect bernie sanders to be raising. so she's coming to this thing tonight with a lot m
