that was offering the country a complete turn away from the george w. bush era in all things domestic and in terms of foreign policy. i think what you've seen is a president who has doubled down on that turn. when it comes particularly to the middle east, this is a president who opposed the invasion of iraq, who has been very, very much opposed to repeating what the administration believes were the mistakes of taking a large ground force, an american ground force into the middle east and not knowing the consequences of regime change. i think it's really important that this president's legacy was also shaped in the intervening years in the arab spring, that came from within countries like egypt and tunisia, turned out very differently. and tunisia turned out one way, and libya and egypt, it was a lot more complicated. you have the situation in yemen. so i think this is a president whose caution on matters of foreign policy has remained pretty much steady throughout his presidency, and who is very confident. this is a president who refused the idea of being a lame duck, and was incredib

, we had george bush at the time we were campaigning and an age of bipartisanship that had been introduced by republicans. i think today's time is quite different. we've had seven years of progress. hillary clinton sits on the stump all the time. president obama doesn't get the credit he deserves. he brought us back from the brink of this crisis, and now what people want is someone who has what it takes to keep moving us forward. i think president obama had some very nice, gracious things to say about hillary clinton the other day, but also in that interview he made some points about what it takes to become president, and certain points of the job, and having to roll your sleeves up and not letting the perfect rule the good. because where you make progress is being on the front lines of those fights. i think our two ads there highlight that difference in approach. >> one more ad moment. sorry, i don't want to be all about ads, but last night at the forum, it was interesting. hillary clinton was shown a bit of the simon and garfunkel ad that bernie sanders is running, and this is
