george bush. when barack obama got elected president obama got elected in 2008, in denver, it was a crown a real crown so to speak of a difficult primary contest between quality competitors who have remained at odds with each other even up to an including the convention. the republicans don't do that. they become conversant with each other, really soon. it's almost as if they showed up in a bar and it's 2:00 and there's nobody else and they've got to go home with somebody. the republicans are in that position when they show up at the convention, that's where they are. in 2008, that's not where we were. we were still hillary clinton's camp, you know, barack obama the emergent guy nobody knew or understood. you add the ethnic flavor to the whole thing, there is nothing like that on the republican side. you've got a whole different deal. what you do have, though, is that you have unknown qualities suspected qualities how they use the man from new jersey, i'm not sure. everybody is looking for him to put it out of the park. if you are suspected to be a phenom and you turn out not to be

. >> if they acknowledge it. >> if they acknowledge it. >> george bush never made a mistake. >> and the bankers never made a mistake. if you look at clinton, reuben, green greenspan, all those who created the architecture of what we're dealing with. if we said, we have a new technology that we can district mathematically on computers and we want to experiment where we think it's possible to create all these new capital flows and all this wonderful thing, that's a reasonable proposition. i remember talking to them at the time and thinking this is interesting. but i would be lying to you if i said, oh, this is pretty cool. so where i really get frustrated is it's not in the experiment, it is in when the experiment failed. because we don't have the capacity to acknowledge the failure of the experiment we're now doubling down on a failed experiment. and you're allowed to experiment and you're allowed to fail. it's encouraged but doubling down on a failed experiment pretending that it hasn't failed is the most dangerous thing you can do in the society. >> we have to move the mass. how do we

liberalling leadership of the city and in many ways, a very innovation and brave leadership, george masconi who opens up minority to gaze and women. he got involved with jim jones because jim jones delivered the votes. he was politically potent. willie bribe and others, harvey milk, himself, the great go leader because they knew jim jones could deliver troops. they canvassed campaigned for him. jim jones new all of the weaknesses and he knew how to play them. >> you chronicle a lot of those weaknesses in very rawdale but also in light of that, you also are balanced and you paint a wonderful picture of george masconi, the idealist and a very good relationship with harvey milk and the city recovering after that the assassination of both milk and masconi and having gone through one of the toughest decades imagined and working its way out. >> this is, to me, the birth of what we know today as san francisco values, the values that drive fox news crazy and progressives get very excited. these are the values of a shared sense of humanity and i think in the early 'yates the city had the ult

remarkable position, puts him at adds with dick cheney and george bush and many others. >> it's a very dangerous game. it's going to be really interesting. the truth of the matter is i have always felt like just as with civil rights, you know, with the african-american community and everything, it's going to get worked out and it's baby steps and now we just got shoved way forward. i think that it would be really kind of cool if everybody would just stop politicizedding this thing. we're not going to be swallowed up by the earth if i get to have a wedding in malibu. you know, so that's just my feeling. >> you bring up enter racial marriage, the supreme court add adjudicated of overturning the laws in that famous loving vs. state of virginia. it's remarkable, you look back and roll our eyes that we had these laws in the states in 1967. 70% of americans opposed enter racial marriage, so the whole idea of prop eight the rights of the minority is inconsistent with the history. >> that's why i said it's all going to work itself out because we continue to shoot ourselves in the foot, but ult

interviews george clooney said, stop trying to be interesting. you're supposed to be interested. i was shocked. that's what i was not doing right. the idea of being able to be open to be a good listener, not just a good teller. to hear what the person was saying to empathetically listen, and allow them to engage you so it's a pitch catch pitch catch. that made them metabolize the experience. they owned it. it wasn't yours that they were imitating, and they carried that forward. here's the beautiful part of it. if it's authentic and authenticity is key to the whole thing, you know that what you want to do is surrender priority prioritize of your story. you're governor, you're leader, when you give someone an offer you want them to pay it forward. you don't want them to digest it and store it away? pay it forward. their experience of your time with them. and then inside that, and he's a good guy and vote for him or buy his product. you know why? very simple. 40,000 years of reading. >> gavin: you talk about congruency. what do you mean by congruency. >> that's code word for authenticity.

crazy dollar destroyed nixon destroyed jimmy carter undermined george bush and none of them knew what hit them. president obama has no appreciation that the volatile dollar that the fed has done is making his task infinitely more difficult. they don't understand it. it has not been taught for decades in the schools. the eyes roll over when it comes up. who shot up lately. so by default bad things happen. >> gavin: some are concerned about money in politics, and the rise of the super pacs. we always had indulgences with wealthy people on both sides with independent ex-pen expenditures. is this healthy for our democracy? are you concerned honestly are you a little bit concerned about what is happening? >> what should be done is take that 76 law which put caps on giving and then the supreme court syd no for individuals and going down this path for 30 years. just throw the whole thing out. from my own personal experience i can tell you that election laws are in rival of tax laws in complexity. i've always taken the position open the thing up. if you give somebody something it's on th

told. you worked under george bush and you find your way to san francisco with a democratic mayor. you directed me with a ten-year plan with chronic homeless. i wasn't the only one. you did this for hundreds of mayors and county executives across this country and your impact was profound. i'm grateful that you took the time to be on the show. i don't think many people have had more impact in this decade on this issue than you have. i'm really honored to have you. >> thank you so much. >> gavin: i'll never forget early in my life, i remember it was 1984-85 listening to ronald reaganen saying people choose to be out there. we can't help people who won't help themselves. is that true? that people could possibly choose-- >> it's a widely held stereotype. my experience speaking to homeless people across the world, again when you ask the customer what they want, they say they want a place to live. they want to go into housing. but what we did for years was we offered people everything but the one thing they wanted because we didn't check in with them. we didn't ask the customer if they wante
