viewpoints of the republican presidential field are richard norton smith, scholar in residence at george washington university, and michael gerson, a columnist for the "washington post," who also served as chief speechwriter to former president george w. bush. gentlemen, good to have you both back with us. michael gerson, let me start with you. we know they are all critical of president obama, but is there an underlying philosophy for all of these republican candidates? >> well, it's interesting. on economic issues they generally agree on tax policy, on size of government issues, but there's a division, a philosophic division among republicans on that stage tonight for some like ron paul and jon huntsman they want to be more inward looking focused on the american economy, less engaged in the world. then there are people like gingrich and romney who are more hawkish internationalists. self-consciously adopt the reagan mantle so i guess the thing that won't be very interesting is that the two front-runners share a lot of ground as we saw on iran and other things but there are serious philo

on the sentence? >> well, as you can imagine, judge george o'toole who presided over the trial told the jurors they could not take that into consideration, a defendant's demeanor and actions in court had nothing to do with this, but it would be hard not to. the only motion he shared at all is when one of his aunts from russia was on the stand and he wiped away a tear, blew her a kiss. he didn't engage with any of the victims. i only saw him once when jessica kenski who lost both legs rolled past him, he glanced at her stumps. i saw him once look at the jury at the time the judge was charging him. for the most part, he was laid back, slumped in his chair, pulled at his beard didn't look around the room, wasn't curious as to who was there. we'll never know whether his attorneys advised him to do that or not. they haven't said. >> woodruff: we just hearksd emily, from one of the family members of one of the victims. are you getting a sense of what the other relatives of the victims are saying in reaction? >> we've gotten to know a lot of them. no one's throwing balloons but there are t
