"The most consequential decision of President George W. Bush's term. It still is a stain on the Republican brand because so many people in the country believe Not only that they don't agree with the war, which is a defensible position. But that George W. Bush lied us into the war. 75% of Democrats believe that in the purveyor of that big lie, a reporter named Ron Fornier has never had his Facebook page. Shut down. I'm just saying You watch the Kentucky Derby, Mr McConnell. Medina Spirit one Dina Spirit is now tested positive for a banned substance and may be disqualified. Yeah. Which means that the runner up the horse that was owned jointly by a bunch of kids from Brown University might win the race now. You're having investigation. We won't know for about a month, but I don't want this forced me to squat. I hope it's Pardon me. Yeah, The trainer claims he's in its trainer claims he's gonna set the horses deserves the presumption of innocence. You know, horses are deserving of the presumption of innocence, too. Only Donald Trump on Lee Donald Trump. Because Democrats To a refer to Liz Cheney as a moderate. And be defend a woman who a month or two ago they would have called a hard liner that they wouldn't have spit on if she was on fire. Let me ask you this list. Cheney has Bean is her moment in the liberal spotlight people on the other side of the aisle, appraising a rightly for her stance against their own party in favor of truth. But what about the argument that Liz Cheney herself Isn't a stranger to quote unquote big lies. She backed the Iraq war. She denied Bush era torture. Maureen Dowd's Your C backed the Iraq war. See, ever just roll off his tongue. This guy. This guy's with MSNBC, huh? You just roll off his tongue. He just basically said that the Iraq war was based upon a lie. Isn't a stranger to quote unquote big lies. She backed the Iraq war. Look at that. You don't know this is a big deal. You don't think this is a big deal. MSNBC host. His name is Madi Hassan. Just roll off the tongue. This Chinese no stranger to big lies. She backed the Iraq war. What Robb Silberman Commission. Look it up. Nobody lied. Rob is a Democrat. Silverman is Republican. They both came to the same conclusion. The Intel was bad Intel with wrong all 16 agencies said at the highest level of certainty that Saddam Hussein had stockpiles, not just wt stockpiles. George Tenet, the CIA director who served under Bill Clinton, whose retained by George W. Bush, he said. At the assertion that Saddam Hussein had stockpiles of WMD was quote unquote, a slam dunk. Intelligence agents all over the world from Russia to France to Britain. To the Israelis to even Hans Blix assume that song was saying had stockpiles. Hans Blix argument was that we should give him more time give the inspectors more time. But very few people doubted the assertion. It was unanimous among all 16 intelligence agencies, the only discrepancy with over how far along he was in getting a nuke. Bill Clinton's Persian Gulf adviser, wrote a piece in the Washington monthly and said, You know, I don't believe you should have gone to war when we did. But there's no question that the intelligence upon which George W. Bush relied with the same intelligence that we had, and that was that Saddam Hussein had stockpiles of WMD. You can quarrel, he said. With the timing. Whether not you think it's a good idea to go to the war go to war, But there's no question we all thought this. This is Bill Clinton's Top Persian Gulf adviser. This thing on Obama saying We know he had chemical weapon because he used him on the Kurds. We he used him on the Kuwait used them during the Iranian Iraq war. He was stealing from the or for food program. He tried to assassinate the first President George W. Bush, You know that? Here. This guy is on MSNBC. Ha just rolls off the tongue. You know Lynch? A, uh, She may not buy the quote unquote big lie, but she's no stranger to big lives. After all, she believed the big lie about the Iraq war Unreal. But what about the argument that Liz Cheney herself Isn't a stranger to quote unquote big lies. She backed the Iraq war. I mean, live, not lynching You lend lend her mother. You see what just happened? You ask a Democrat to name the most Egregious decision any Republican made in the last in my lifetime, and they said the Iraq war A lot of people in the left still say it was our Gravest foreign policy. Mistake. B. S B s. Triggered all sorts of things in the Middle East. And when Obama pulled out all the troops Against the advice of virtually his entire national security apparatus. Including Hillary Little by little. He put troops back to the point where they're around 5000 by the time he left, which is exactly the number that George W. Bush and Dick Penny estimate it will be necessary for stay behind force in Iraq. And this man goes on MSNBC hall. Just Lively, says Lynn. Liz Cheney, believed in the big lie about the Iraq war. What big lie? That's what I'm talking about. This is the world we're operating it. You have a whole world I have the country. This kind of stuff is said and believed, Never mind the Rob Silverman Commission. And Judge Silverman wrote an op ed piece in the Wall Street Journal. He said I contacted Ron Fornier of associate questions. What are you doing? I called him. He e mailed me to. Well, you know the interest the intelligence was interpreted a certain way and he said Intel Commie interpreted a certain way you say lied. He offered no proof whatsoever..

"It just wonderful. I guess they feel like crap. They still have the same arousal needs and they want to do it again, and they're just hoping that they can go run off with Epstein again in two or three weeks. It was Bill Gates one of these guys, They're not. I don't know. But why else was he having Why? Well, Susie running off to see Epstein all the time, which apparently was enough to make up Melinda. Wanna ditch him? US admitted Bill Gates looks the part, doesn't he? Find that that could be See the thing about saying somebody looks. The part of being a pervert is once you know there are pervert you build into your mind that they looked the part of being the pervert. See, that's what makes it a little tricky. You say Bill Clinton looks like a pervert, but so does pee Wee Herman look like a pervert that they were both perverts, but they don't look at all alike. I mean, you could. Maybe we think that Bill Clinton looks like a pervert because we already know that Bill Clinton is a pervert. Like is that other guy that's accused of perversion? Woody Allen is the ultimate. I mean, he made a career out of looking like a pervert. He played a guy that seemed to be halfway a pervert. I mean, he does look like a pervert. I actually don't know that Clinton looks like a pervert. I mean, if you just if Clinton was just sitting there, it just looks like a guide as it may. Do you think Bill Clinton looks like a pervert once he starts to talk? I mean, he's Bill Clinton. I Bill Clinton If he was not If he had not gone into politics. He would've been a hustler and a con man. He would have been selling aluminum society or something like that. What of the great movies that had enough people ever watched was tin men. Do you ever see Tin men say you got this? Netflix or all these? I don't know which one of them aside and all that. You. I had my I have Apple TV know that allows me to search. So it tells you which thing It's on. You have that. So you could figure out if it's on something and then see if you have it or DOD. Yeah. Google let her do it. Kidman was a great great great will be about aluminum siding salesman. It was set. It was done by the same guy that did diner. Very Very something I wanted to say Levinson, but that might not be correct. He also did he did a bunch of shows. On git was set in Baltimore, just like diner was they were overlapping stories. But the Tinman was about an older generation of people's over a bunch of guys that sold aluminum siding, you know, to homeowners and probably the seventies or whatever ad They were unbelievably competitive. And there were two guys that hated each other. Danny DeVito and Michael No, not Michael Douglas. Richard Dreyfuss. Think about him and Danny DeVito and Richard Dreyfus hated one another to the point that they were like, Why didn't get even with each other, like having sex with each other's wives, and so on. They're just extremely competitive people. And you know they were all in the aluminum siding business end. Selling a little bit of siding based on this movie and also what I know in life. It's People who sell aluminum siding or not selling aluminum siding. They're selling themselves. I know a guy. I know this story first had. I mean, I know this story to be true, because I know the individuals involved. I know a guy who sold aluminum siding to a family that had a brick house. I do. Not like a little not like put the a little bit of a little bit of side against tribute, the whole house. Beautiful brick, and they put a little bit of sighting over the side of it. I was on a sales call with the guy. Don't think I don't think everybody involved in this story other than me is dead, but I still don't want to give the names. You know, he goes out on the sales call. And Paul Harvey's on the radio. And the guy comes in and make some comment of a Paul Harvey something that Paul Harvey would do or like he had his birthday Mentioner the anniversaries that the guy comes in the salesmen that I know comes in to make something they did He done the anniversaries yet or something. That he's got the tape measure and he goes outside and he's on the ladder, and he's measuring this and he's measuring that, and he's measuring the other thing. I'm watching. He's not writing anything down. He was measuring anything. He just was moving the table. He's you know, guys like this. They they eyeballed the house up. He knew exactly how much it could cost. The rest was just all show. And then he went in, and he buttered up the couple and so on and calculating how much can I overcharge these people that get away with that was the whole tak behind, and it was not only getting the job but then figuring out What you could quote and be able in be able to get away with the whole thing. Well, that's a Bill Clinton What? Abed? And I suspect a lot of people would have fallen for bill tended because a lot of people did fall for Bill Clinton. That's a guy I was talking earlier in the program, but eventually the truth comes out. In the case of Bill Clinton. The truth has come out. Is there anybody who actually doesn't think Bill Clinton did everything he was accused of even Democrats. You know, we're in an era now where they're in the Obama era, not the Clinton era. I think even you're going to get very fiend Bill Clinton. What do they? What do they care about him anymore, anyway? I don't believe that there any people out there, including on the left who believe the bill Clinton didn't do all this stuff, right and the left, he's now they've washed their hands of him because they've moved on. We're in this new What? Well, it all of them and and you know, and that's why they're not paying any attention to Hillary anymore. This is the Obama team running Biden and you know the Marxism and the revisionism that they're all throwing out that, for example. The welfare reform that Bill Clinton did do. He did do some positive things that he cut the deal with Gingrich stealing, essentially stealing Tommy Thompson's Wisconsin welfare reforms by and wants to get out of the whole thing and the fact that that happened under Clinton The Democrats have watched their hands about that kind of proves my point. Eventually, the truth does come up about the time it comes out again..
Fresh update on "bill clinton" discussed on Donna and Steve
"Your friends you can check out some of every shows featured segments. There's conversations about pop culture, all sorts of stuff. So, yes, Go and check it out. How about this story, guys? Melinda Gates apparently began working with divorce lawyers well over a year before her split with Bill Gates. Oh, boy. But wait, there's more. This was partly over concerns about her husband's dealings. With convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein say the last sentence out loud again. This was partly over her concerns about her husband's dealings. With Jeffrey Epstein, who is a convicted sex offender, especially when it comes to underage girls, not boy. So apparently Melinda spoke with attorneys from several firms as early as October of 2019. Saying the marriage was irretrievably broken. And she cited uh There were documents that were cited in people in the know that said that she had a lot of unease about Bill Gates ties to Epstein dating back to 2013. He, um, wonderful spokesperson. No, it was. The New York Times reported in October of 2019 that Bill Gates had met with Epstein several times and one state in his New York City town house. And then a spokesperson for him said at the time Those meetings were centered on philanthropy. But It seems like there's a little more to the story, doesn't it? It does. Yeah. So As we know. The couple has said publicly that they plan on Remaining co chairs and trustees of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Billionaire Warren Buffett serves as the foundation's third trustee, You know, and they all have that on They've all vowed to give away a majority of their wealth. So Interesting. Epstein when he was in New York, in a New York jail, named a little known bio tech venture capitalist whose name was Boris. Neat. Nikolic. Okay, as a backup executor of his will, But Nikolic had worked as a science adviser to Bill Gates. And more recently funded more than a dozen firms and gene editing and other like health technology, So there's all these like, interconnections. Sure, but in an emailed statement at the time this Nikolic Told Bloomberg News that Epstein had not Consulted him about his will and that he had no intention of fulfilling those duties. So Hmm. Seems like there's a little something else going on. And if there is, it makes sense that we had the story that the kid's air team Melinda Here is from the business Insider. Um, they say that there was a report that Bill Gates and, uh, Jeffrey Epstein met more than once from 2011 to 2013. The outlet reported that Gates Road on Epstein's private jet from Jersey to Palm Beach, Florida, though Gates had previously Tonight he'd ever traveled with Epstein. In a 2019 interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said. I didn't have any Bill Gates set. I didn't have any business relationship or friendship with him. I didn't go to New Mexico or Florida or Palm Beach or any of that There were people around him. Who are saying, Hey, if you want to raise money for global health and get more philanthropy, he knows he knows a lot of rich people philanthropy. Every meeting where I was with him were meetings with men. I was never had any parties or anything like that. He never donated Any money to anything that I know about. And then they say that the two men's relationship appeared to cool in the fall of 2014. According to the Beast. This following a $2 million donation to MIT media lab by Bill Gates that the lab's former director Claimed was facilitated by Epstein, a representative for Gates denied that claim to the journal saying, although Epstein pursued Bill Gates aggressively Any account of a business, partnership or personal relationship between the two is simply not true. And any claims that Epstein directed any Programmatic or personal grant making for Bill Gates is completely false. Somebody's lying. Somebody's lying. They can't both be true. Interesting, huh? Very much. So Mm. Makes you want to scratch your head a little bit things that make you kill what we ever I don't know what we ever learn with him. Was like a loose follower of this Epstein situation, Steve, But like what did we ever learn of all the big names that were attached? I thought we learned anything that they stopped reporting on. You know, we haven't heard too much. I know there was Bill Clinton's name was attached. Um Prince Andrew's name was attached. Um We just We don't know if I mean There could have been meetings just Among rich guys and people with, you know, business dealings without there being any crazy business. But it seems that there are Also Case cases that seem a little suspicious a lot with the Glenn Maxwell trial with her computer that they have and getting that information names, and I think that when they get that trial going, won't they kind of have a little more answer to what I would think so I think we'll find out. I think it just kind of been waiting for that trial to come through, because once they have to start talking about those names and testify, especially a criminal investigation, they're not gonna like show the public call there. Cards right now, so I think well, it will come out eventually. I mean, I want to know. Hopefully it does because there's a lot of my eyes suspicious activity there with a lot of important names, not saying that they were tied to it like you guys said, But Let's get clarification here because there's a lot of sure things going on wonderful. Ronan Farrow's doing any Someone like a Ronan Farrow doing big trying to piece together some bombshell piece. That would be great if he was. I mean, there was a whole documentary whole theories on it, and I watched the whole thing with all these young women. And they all even the women who did not even know one another had the same stories about how they were groomed and how they were told they were going. Is it West Palm and then? What's the other one? That's right across the bridge, West Palm Beach and Palm Beach E think and one's the fancy side, and the other one is like kind of the other side of the tracks, and they would get these girls to come and give this rich guy Epstein massages, which turned into Just this ring, boy of just sexual abuse. Just disgusting anyway, I'm sure. Yeah, it's probably getting close to that time. Yeah. All right, guys. Well, we should lighten things up. Let's do that. All right. I have a list here, Steve, that I think would be really fun to go down and listen it. We could look at the flip side, too. I have a list of what's not nearly as attractive as guys think it is. Then maybe we could flip it. Yeah, and Grant and I could sort of speak on behalf of guys like us. Let's do it. Okay. It's all coming up in, according to a new study when we come right back on Donna and Steve on my talk, Another lorry and Julia moment was to con Sam. If the nose knows the show's knows, or whoever they might be safer for. You knows. No Yes. What does it mean when you want to dress up like a box of cereal? And have mad sex with a bowl of milk. Okay? Is a 60. Lucky? No, but not to be confused with the first, you know, first, probably haven't going pretty good here during covert and wear masks all the time, Right, Right. Have to change a thing. Oh,.

"To the doll head every week. I your host will mcfadden deliver a hot fresh tasty tale directly to your ear earbuds. And you don't even have to tip listened. Storytime day on the iheartradio apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts. You know he'll not binge watch grey's anatomy for years and we vote everything so we were fateful watchers check in on them every now and then i feel i know these people the thing that means the most to me today about your characters and i'd like to talk to you about it is that you don't paint people in black and white you do nuance you. Do shades of reality you. You don't turn your heroes or your villains into two-dimensional cartoons and i think one of the things. That's really hurting america today. And over the world at one of the reasons for the rise of all this rampant divisive nationalism is that we're all being turned into cartoons and it's happening in every aspect of our life including the way we get normal news information. I mean when when john kennedy was president. The news was an hour long. There were three networks enough to keep each other honest and competition but also to keep each other financially and psychologically secure enough that they could tell a story the average time when the president was on television in a news story the average exposure was forty three seconds but at the time i became president was down to about eighteen but the time barack obama became president was down to about nine as it kept dropping. It was tailor made for someone. Like donald trump. I thought the most valuable thing about scandal and in a different way about your owner shows how to get away with murder and especially about grey's anatomy. The reasons lasted for seventeen years. I think is that people are inherently interesting because they are constantly revealing themselves in ways that are surprising turns out were not cartoons and when we navigate the world is if we are seems to me that we're creating a hell of a problem for ourselves in a world is tough enough as it is you think about the i about that all the time and i find myself having that conversation more and more all the time. There's something to me about. Sort of what i call the struggle. It takes to remain human. That feels vital in storytelling. For some say that you want sent me a letter saying that you really enjoyed watching you. Hillary really enjoyed watching grey's anatomy and i framed it and it was for a long time in my office. The only thing framed and hung on my wall is very excited. It was like it meant a lot. and then as a gift. I think you so you said something in an interview where he said. I just love everything. Shonda rhimes does and my staff got me a t shirt. That bill clinton loves everything. I do and i wore. It was really cute but it also was like this affirmation so thank you for that. Now go back to your question. This idea that people are not just these two dimensional paper doll cutouts that that everybody has a humanity to them that everybody has pain and sorrow and and love and enjoy that everyone believes they're the hero of their own story that they're not just acting because they're villains or because they're you know like the love interest every character that you're writing about has to be the hero of their own story and you have to treat them that way is a really important thing both in storytelling. I think and in life. It was very interesting for me and scandal which i'd created as sort of a fable. You know when we when. I created scandal. My idea was that washington was so not like that there was no way. Washington was like that that that that it was kind of kind of going to be fun to explore. What the dark. Dark side of politics could be This idea that really they were there was sort of the monster among us running our country and we had missed it. But it's always fun to tell a go story in. The lights are on but then we moved to place in their country with the lights. Were off and it stopped being as much fun but those characters all of them you know cyrus being is that was very dark character and a very sort of people used to say like and i would get very offended and i would say cyrus beene. It's not evil. Cyrus beene as a patriot because in his own mind. That is why he was doing what he was doing. He was doing it because he loved his country more than anybody else in his mind and that he was doing everything he could to save his country. More than anybody else. Every last character has to be somebody who you can step in their shoes and walk around. Every story has to provide a window and mirror to can look through and see somebody else's life and also yourself in there and we should be treating other people currently like that too. And i find myself having this conversation more and more the generation. That's coming up right. Now they they are. I think they've been conditioned to not look at the world that way. Unfortunately and i get a lot of pushback when i say You know donald trump. Whatever he's done you have to look at him. Like a person and think if i was walking in his shoes what would that mean as hard as may be for somebody and to them. That's like i'm i'm saying you know. Set yourself on fire or something equally as ridiculous because it's very hard for them to believe that things are not black and white that there are these shades of gray out there you know. I will always tell people. This is the framework through which i evaluate this. You might not agree with it. That's fine but if you don't you need your own framework because you need to understand. It's more important to understand before you take assad and when you take assad if you wanna avoid calamity you have to understand the other side. When i was president my staff used to laugh at me. Because i never made an argument when i wanted. Boris yeltsin to do something or to convince the of it sock rabin or shimon peres netanyahu to do something. I would never argue about why i wanted it. I always stated why. I thought it was best for them to do it. I said you might not agree. You know your own interests more than me. But here's why. I think it's good for you. I think we we just don't do that enough anymore. Our when i when i was thirteen years old so there's been a more than sixty years ago. I remember this like it was yesterday and my last day of eighth grade science. My teacher vernon dokie. Who's an ex coach. He was married to a beautiful woman. Who taught me history and was great. He to put it. Charitably was not a handsome man and teacher didn't make any money and he was always trying to let out his belt and coming out of his shirt and he had a coke bottle glasses and he smoked. Cheap cigars out of.

Cuomo's Fourth Accuser, Karen Hinton, Speaks Out
"About Governor Cuomo. And we have with us here on the show his fourth accuser, Karen, hidden Karen, you seem as we were talking about before the break. Very protective and feel really bad, especially for some of these younger women. Um, you are the same age right as Governor Cuomo. So you thought you you had been experienced in terms of dealing with Politicians and a whole bunch of things. But of course, never anticipated what had happened here. Do you regret that you didn't come forward sooner? Yes, I regret it. Uh, but on the other hand, I Never. There was never an opportunity for me to speak about it because there had not been any other public accusations. And you know, at By the time I had turned 40 I was no longer working for him and didn't work for him again. Um, you know, we weigh moved my husband on my second husband. I boot from Washington to New York. He began working with Governor Cuomo as his director, state operation. And um, and so I wanted to be supportive of Andrew's position as governor of New York and I wanted him to do well and I had unhappy a great deal of respect for many of the programs and policies he's put into place. I mean, the work you did around gay marriage. Was was very moving to me and very important. To this country and the work he's done in Cove it even though he's now facing criticism and rightfully so. His handling of the Because the manipulation of the numbers or the nursing home deaths occurred, whether it was in the hospital of the nursing him. That's very problematic and rightfully so, and we should be concerned about it at the same time. He also has done a very good job of of one of the first governor because it was one of the first hot spot to really take control of the terrible situation and try to turn it around and the death and the case is dropped. And they're continuing to drop now. But do you wish like maybe do you think maybe if I had said something 21 years ago He could have. It could have illuminated his behavior could have stopped his being out late. Do you think we live in it? We live in a country. Even they, uh, you know, it's problematic for the young woman who are coming forward. Now they could end up losing jobs or not getting jobs in the future, and people may want to stay away from them. And so, uh, my decision to do it now we try to stay. You can't speak out. You don't be silent, Speak out and support these women so that they can continue to function and have vibrant Important careers because in 1998 When I'm working for Andrew Cuomo. And then, of course in 2000. This was a time when they've been so much that the board about Bill Clinton's womanizing. And I did not want to find myself in a position where I could lose my my job. I could not get another job. I could lose clients who might hire me as a consultant after I left Hut. Wait. The country was not in a position to try to believe a woman. Did anybody believe Monica Lewinsky at first? Did anybody believe other women from Arkansas who accused Clinton of inappropriate sexual behavior? No. They made fun of them.

You and most of the justices you have served with at least until now have a somewhat different take that the constitution was written to be elastic enough. As justice kennedy now retired but to accommodate changes in society. Could you talk about your thinking a bit.

Two more women accuse New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate conduct
"More women that just came forward on Saturday, accusing Governor Cuomo of sexually harassing behavior. Including a former press aide who describes struggling Free yourself from his repeated hugs and a young assistant who now says he left her feeling like just a skirt, former press aide Karen Hinton and dirty very long too long too tight, too intimate embrace from coma. Gently with Los Angeles hotel room in December. 2000, she told The Washington Post the married Hinton pulled away. But she claims and again these air claims. That he pulls me back for another intimate embrace, she said. I thought at that moment it could lead to a kiss. It could lead to other things, so I just pull away again and I leave. At that time, Cuomo led the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The current rep for Cuomo strongly denied Hinton's allegations of the newspaper claiming that it did not happen, but it doesn't end there. The other new accuser. Her name is analysts, a policy and operations aide who worked for the governor from 2013 to 2000 and 15 said he'd behaved inappropriately while on the job in Albany. The governor called her sweetheart and asked if she had a boyfriend. She recalled that to the Wall Street Journal This is the third former state employees and former woman overall. You accused the governor of varying degrees of sexual harassment Intern brings the total of accusers now to five. Now. The scandal sparked repeated calls for an investigation. Cuomo's resignation and moved the state legislative and finally wrote the governor's emergency pandemic related powers. Last month, former aide Lindsay Boylan. Detailed how Cuomo Allegedly kissed her on the lips without warning. Over the governor's Manhattan office last week. Charlotte Bennett, who happens to be 25 years old. Said. The second one to step forward by the way, revealed coma. Asked her inappropriate personal questions told her he was open to relationships with women in their twenties and left her feeling that he wanted to sleep with me, according to her now Former Biden campaign worker and a rush you might have heard of her. She came forward, charging the governor saying that gave her an unwanted kiss on the cheek at a big Apple wedding, saying the 2019 encounter left her confused and shocked and embarrassed now. Spokesperson for Cuomo said that Karen Hinton is known as an antagonist of the governor who's attempting to take advantage of this moment to score cheap points with made up allegations from 21 years ago. The spokesperson also said all women have the right to come forward and tell their story, but he slammed. Hinton's account is reckless allegations reflect nothing Maurer than common behavior in public receptions. Another Cuomo spokesperson insisted in the statement said that reporters and photographers have covered the governor for 14 years watching him kiss men and women. Posing for pictures now at the public Open House mansion reception. They claim that there are hundreds of people and he poses for hundreds of pictures. That's what people in politics do. According to Cuomo's people AIDS, I should say So. Here's my opinion on this whole thing, and I started the first like my saying, I think almost like a lot of other politicians. Unfortunately, scumbags. That will do anything. They can to make themselves look better and not take account for personal responsibility like a governor to sent this, for example, or a governor Abbott, But the difference here is now you have women coming forward that are accusing him of sexual misconduct. So my opinion is the same here. As it would be to Donald Trump or Bill Clinton. I don't care whether you have a nardine extra named Here's the difference. Obviously, when it comes to Donald Trump, he had women that accused him of actual sexual assault and rape. I think if you call somebody, sweetheart, I don't think that's something that you should lose your job over. If you kiss somebody on the cheek, it should be the responsibility of that person. To say, Hey, you know that I don't want that Now. I understand Cuomo's powerful guy in a powerful position, and I also understand some of these women were probably afraid to speak out. Don't necessarily see anything in these stories that would that would spill out. Oh, my God, he should be fired. Now if you withheld Or somebody in his camp withheld on purpose information about death toll stuff, public information, and it was changed. That's completely different circumstance and absolutely, but when it comes to these women's stories, It's borderline a little bit awkward and inappropriate, I would say borderline. Keep in mind. There's no sexual assault that has been Put forth by any of these women he obviously made. Some of these women feel little uncomfortable. There's no question about that. And it is if it's true, and we don't know if it's true, But if it is true asking a woman if she has a boyfriend in the workplace and asking her if she dates older man telling her that you date younger women, it's inappropriate. Is it a fireable offense? No, I don't think so. But it is certainly At a minimum inappropriate. And I certainly hope he learns his lesson from that because there are multiple women now that have come forward the

This isn't the right way to go on about doing the things that i want to help accomplish. That that need for for unity is is is so is so important that I think that this country will tear itself apart.

You don't have to win everyone. Heck i'll on lost. Two elections forum ran for president. But i think this is important. We got to get young people to get off the sideline than into the arena and even myself had key. When i voted i i turned eighteen the day before the midterm election twenty eighteen i was born november fifth and the election was a member six and i were to vote in september. You're able to serve seventeen years ten months and the day of i. I don't see my registration online. I'm that keep checking every day. And i assume they'll put it in on my birthday because you on monday and the day of i don't see it so i called the the elections office in in. Houston it's run by a republican. And i asked him where what were you know where my destruction was and they said we don't have it. I don't we don't have you in the system and i said but i have my registration stuff right here. And they're like okay. Well you need to come down to the election office before we close. Also you know. It's like thirty minutes away we close. I'm like forty five minutes. So i you know. Wake up my mom. Who's who's taking a nap and we rush over to feel elections office and a handover my my receipt. That i register to vote and they signed me up to vote. And i go the next day after school. I go to vote at my precinct. Local fire station. And i give him all my information and they say that i'm not in the system and they're like you're going to have to vote provisional and so i'm annoyed i fell on my provisional ballot and vote in my happy about voting and i go home and three weeks later. Receive a letter in the mail stating that My perverted the provisional ballot board. Who reviews all the provisional ballots had denied my vote. Because i had voted in the wrong precinct. The thing was is that. I hadn't and i knew that i hadn't and i knew that i made sure everything was right. But they told me that i did. And so i had to contact the aclu of texas on my behalf to research and to reach out to the offices than their investigation concluded that I had met obstacles every single away from the loss of my registration to not being in the system on election. Day to being having my right to vote or be disenfranchised effectively by vote counting because of an error made on their part every step of the way luckily in that election republican was ousted by democrat. Who assured me that That they would make sure that this never happens again and they and they. They kept their promise on that. Because houston in harris county introduced countywide polling places that you'd be able to vote anywhere in the county. Well let's just follow up on that the the one thing that you don't learn and boy state that there's nobody there trying to stop you from vote. Everybody gets to vote right right so it is what it is and the demographically it might not like your community and people might not be buying what you're selling but at least a few if you can register or you can be deemed as registering and it's on the level.

"We're going to start in the early nineties back before this shift. When the old rules about government borrowing still applied. Bill clinton had just been elected president. He appointed an economist named laura tyson to be one of his top advisors and she looked at the economy and she saw this glaring problem year after year. Both government deficits and interest rates. Were going up and then he said omega if we don't get a hold of this federal deficit than that trend will continue. Those rates will continue upward. That was a very significant concern. Higher interest rates were concerned for a couple of reasons for one thing. Obviously they meant that the government had to pay more to borrow money but also when interest rates for the government went up. Interest rates also went up for everybody else. And that's it up this whole cascade of problems so we're people won't buy as many houses. There won't be as many houses constructed in their wealth as much capital equipment invested in and investments in important part of the Economic growth in your all sorts of every interest sensitive part of the economy the way the government runs a deficit. The way it borrows money is by selling bonds treasury bonds. The government says to really anybody. Okay lend us whatever one hundred dollars and in say ten years we will pay you back with interest will pay you back one hundred twenty dollars. The bond is basically the government's i. Iou you that it will pay back that loan with interest and during the clinton administration because of that link between deficits and interest rates. Everybody in the white house talked about treasury bonds about the bond market time. James carville was a political advisor to president. Clinton was just an obsession. In the early days of clinton's everybody say what's the bond market could house bot mocking react to hell multiple. i don't know it just became this omnipresent. The heart of every conversation. James carville was not an economics guy but as he spent time at the white house he realized that sort of bizarrely all these people who worked there making policy the people who had what seemed like the most powerful jobs in the world. We're in fact terrified of the bond market so when a reporter from the wall street journal called up carville to talk about the bond market. He came up with this line that became sort of famous or at least bond market famous kid. I wanted to grow up with four hundred hitter. The pope and the president. But i just want to be the bond. Market's gonna scare the hell out of everybody pleat. What did he say. A what a hundred hitter like in baseball pope the president baseball. I cannot tell you how many times he said that's me. Every meeting every meeting a lot of my memories are about carville sort of making jokes about you. Know you issues as a bond trader bond traders. These are the people who work in finance all around the world who manage a bunch of money. Generally other people's money pension funds or college endowments that kind of thing and every day they decide what bonds to buy and what bonds to sell what companies and countries to lend to and what companies and countries to not lend to to stop lending to and like with any lender bond traders worry about lending more money to a borrower who is already borrowing a lot because all that borrowing makes it more risky and so to compensate for that risk bond traders demand a higher interest rate. They stop lending until rates. Go up and this bond traders demanding higher interest rates when the government is borrowing more money. This is the scenario that everyone was so worried about people. Were so afraid of this that there was even a special term for the bond traders. Who do this bond vigilantes. Bill clinton has convinced. The bond vigilantes are scary and in fact he decides the us needs to bring the deficit down. He decides to build a whole economic plan around getting rid of the deficit. One of the economists he brought in to make that happen was jason and a central argument. That we made was if you do this. It will lower interest rates and interest rates are lower will have more investment and more economic growth and sort of amazingly. All of this happened. They did raise taxes and cut spending and get the deficit down. In fact by the end of the clinton administration the deficit felt all the way to zero. And what came next was sort of a golden moment for the economy in silicon valley. There was the dot com boom but really the whole economy was doing great businesses of all kinds. Were doing well. Ordinary workers were getting breezes lower deficits lead to lower interest rates which led to more investment. And that was good for basically everybody. The system was working. The next big moment in the story comes right after the financial crisis of two thousand eight and this is the moment when everything is about to change when this big shift in the way the world works is about to happen but nobody quite nosy yet. Brock obama has just been elected. President obama brings in clinton's guy. Jason furman as one of his economic advisors and ferment. Goes into this meeting to discuss. How big of a stimulus. Bill obama should push for as he takes office. We met with the president-elect december sixteenth two thousand eight and we're all crowded together in a conference room. I think it was in a law firm in chicago and he wanted it to be big. He wanted to be bold but there was this worry. The stimulus was going to be funded with deficit. Spending government was going to borrow the money. And some of obama's own economic advisers worried that borrowing and spending too much money might actually harm the economy for that classic reason
Genocide, why won't world leaders call it what it is?
"Sounds like term from antiquity. The kind of thing that there might have been an eleventh commandment forbidding it is not the word dates from as recently as nineteen forty four when it was coined by the polish lawyer raphael lampkin to define the holocaust he survived and which dozens of his family did not genocide is also a relatively modern crime though. Humans have fought clan clan tribe on faith on faith and nation or nation for as long as they have been humans. The ambition of completely wiping out an entire bunch of people was substantially thwarted for most of history by the limits of technology. They are arguably cases to be made for rome's destruction of coffee in one hundred and forty six bc and athens conquest of mills to hundred and seventy years before that but the industrialization of extermination is in general and as raffaelle lincoln recognized name modern blights pilot. And i think that's the spirit. The unanimous bill family the biscuit behind by all allstate ratified mile parliaments at the earliest date inaudible advised acumen rights. Forgive given the protection of international law for the sake of progress and international. Lincoln's legacy is the un's nineteen forty eight convention on the prevention and punishment of the crime of genocide and the row continuing unto the present day over what genocide means who is entitled to accuse him of committing it. And what should be done about it if someone has this week. Canada became the second country to officially describe china's repressions of it's largely muslim week minority as genocide. Well after a fashion though the motion passed parliament. Two hundred and sixty six votes to zip canada's prime minister justin trudeau and most of his cabinet sat out. The motion was put forward by the conservatives. Who called on the liberals to send a united message about human rights. The vote was non-binding although it was backed by all opposition parties and some members of trudeau's own liberal party with the pragmatism or cowardice or a bit from column a and a bit from column be this abstention highlights the reason that governments are often pretty reticent about accusing anybody else of genocide. The convention on genocide does not merely oblige signatories to not commit genocide. It obliges them to act if someone else does. It's right there in article one. The contracting parties confirmed that genocide where the committed in time of peace or in time of war is a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and to punish the trouble with invoking. The g word is that it implicitly summons an assumption of accompanying action which puts into context the motivations of the first country to accused china genocide against the week as the united states in the very lost hours of president. Donald trump's term so possibly laissez noble statement of principle and more the diplomatic equivalent of sewing prunes into the curtains vixen incoming tenant although intriguingly president joe biden's administration has thus far stood by the declaration. We're going to stop the chinese from their actions. We should be gone to the un immediately and so at sanctions against them in the united nations. For what they did. We have to be firm. We don't have to go to war but we have to make it clear. This is as far as you go. China the difficulty is that stopping the genocide very often necessitates confronting the people committing it and this can be risky expensive and difficult to sell to voters whose interest in the travails of people in place. They couldn't point to on globe cannot be taken for granted. This is the conundrum that to site. One inglorious example lead to the us administration of president bill clinton wintering squeamishly about act of genocide in rwanda in nineteen ninety-four had the us formally called the acts of genocide. An actual genocide questions might have been asked about why words were not being accompanied by the eighty second airborne

"Last year. america found itself in a battle against to the disease first covid nineteen which is now claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and up into the way we work live and interact with each other and the second is a major reason why covert was able to claim such a devastating toll the malignant spreading of misinformation and downplaying the seriousness of the virus. There were people within ideological agenda telling the public cove. Nineteen was far less dangerous than the flu. The different drugs or supplements could effectively treat the virus without any supporting evidence and social distancing and they use of masks or unnecessary long. After the science shown other ones that the number of cases hospitalizations and deaths were overblown even said that the doctors working tirelessly on the front lines and risking their own lives to save patients were inflating numbers for monetary gain and the list goes on and on. So why am i telling you this because you can't effectively confront any health crisis without clear signs. Drouin information for the public. I'm very grateful. The new biden administration is empowered scientists and public health experts. Like dr fauci. Speak to the american people and got our response. And i'm very grateful to to all those who worked so hard to cut through misinformation so that people can stay informed and keep themselves and their families and safe. And that's why. I'm glad to have someone with me today. There's been one of america's most trusted medical sources for decades and especially over the last year. Dr sanjay gupta. Cnn's chief medical correspondent and an associate professor of neurosurgery at emory university hospital in atlanta throughout the pandemic sanjay's dispatches have given practical tips for staying healthy and build trust in science and medicine including recently taking the cove in nineteen vaccine on camera to prove it. Safety is also a prolific author. Who's new book keeps. Sharp is full of ways to improve brain health. Something i have always been interested in. And at the age of seventy four now virtually obsessed by so sanjay. Thanks being here today. what an honor mr president. So delighted to be with you. I can see you the listeners. Cannot you look fantastic. I'll just throw that in there as well. Well i'm trying to follow the advice in your book. We're nearly a year end of the pandemic of what a year ago seemed to be concentrated in new york and washington state and california has now spread across the country and it's still claiming a couple of thousands of our citizens everyday so briefly. Tell us in broad strokes. Where are we now. What should someone listening. No and do as we continue to navigate and hope for times of return to a more normal life. I when i first started reporting on this there was all these models. We would look at and i always sort of picked a a mid range model to share with the public as part of our reports. You know. I justified it by looking at all. The various factors didn't want to give the best case scenario because that didn't look like it was going to happen based on what we were seeing initially but the worst case scenario is really frightening over the last couple of weeks. We have surpassed the worst case scenario model. And i'm even careful how. I want to give that information to the public. I mean what value does serve but the but the truth is that is the case that even if you looked at all the worst-case models were pass those. It's it's it's pretty. It's pretty dark days. There is going to be a peak and then we will come out the back side of this curve. The question is how high will be that pecan. How long will we stay. There will we. How long will we plateau there. And and and what's happening right now will dictate that. And that's all human behavior. The the the other thing i will say is that the vaccines are incredible. They really are can. Can i just tell you the story. Because you probably know the story. But i i am so blown away by the story and i think it's also one of the brightest spots this pandemic just three or four days after the genetic code for this virus was shared with the world just a couple days after that the vaccine platforms were set. I mean the amount of scientific these were guys who took a code and were writing down their their platform on the back of napkins and sharing it with other scientists. And doing this over you know over zoom calls because people were talking all over the world. They came up with the vaccine platform. Really fast and two months after that genetic code was initially shared. Trials were started shots. Were going into arms. So it's an incredible incredible story of medical innovation. And i just you know it's been so few things celebrate. Be honest with you. Mr president that i may be Get particularly excited about this but there are diseases that you will know. Hiv aids forty years. Been trying to get a vaccine and we don't have one to have to authorized vaccines within a year. By the end of two thousand. Twenty was truly a remarkable thing. And i think frankly probably has changed medical innovation forever. Not just around pandemics but just forever what we were able to do with our backs up against the wall. The system doesn't get pressured like that very often during times of conflict. Yes a pandemic some of our greatest medical achievements. Come about during these very dire circumstances and that was the case here as well a lot of just ordinary citizens do wonder if there is any chance however remote taking this vaccine could alter their dna and answer to that as no. But why don't you explain to him. Why why can't it alter madina. It is genetic Based vaccine but it's an messenger aurigny. This isn't a blueprint for anything that would come in there and Basically compete with your own blueprint. If i can miss president fight just on the healthcare workers so many healthcare workers who are not getting vaccinated as well Have a distrust of the entire system Because many of them who who may be Black or brown. Healthcare workers have seen some of these vaccine trials in the past. They've seen other medical trials that have been outright discriminatory. And i think there is a real long standing hangover effect from that. So i think that's that's driving a lot of vaccine hesitancy among african-americans among latinos. Well we've seen that. And there's been these incredible outreach campaigns like morehouse school of medicine and you've had people coming lead vaccination campaigns but i do think that's driving it and that's been another theme we've seen throughout this pandemic these these disparities based on history but this time there wasn't effort to make sure we had a diverse pool of people on whom the vaccine assessed.

Is it too late to get in to Bitcoin?
"Back in the day when amazon i one public it shot up roughly after some fits and spurts. It went up to about ninety dollars. You it was like i'm too late. Missed it gone. And then it capitulated down at shot all the way down to two and i was like it's gone amazon's finished not even gonna look at it and then it went back up to ninety. I missed it. I missed it again then. Went up to three hundred to four hundred. It's this constant m. I too late emmett too. Early internal struggle that we have in our brain. What do you think about that. Yeah i think this is exactly so what you're really describing is Things being relative and this is actually think the fundamentally challenging concept with something like bitcoin which is a paradigm shift so people think about bitcoin relative to other assets. If you call a lot of conversations i had in two thousand nineteen twenty twenty where around bitcoins volatility right but bitcoins volatility relative to what because volatility is a relative measure price when we talk about price it's a relative measure because what am i Pricing bitcoin and typically people are pricing in dollars so relatively speaking yes. Bitcoin is volatile compared to holding dollars. But if we compare bitcoin to say equities if you quainton bonds if we compare bitcoin to precious metals the volatility doesn't look so extreme. What really happened at the start of this year. In march of twenty twenty the world shifted the world changed completely and forty years of capital markets. Beliefs were shattered like smashed with a hammer completely shattered. Now changes really hard for people and one of the things. That's really interesting For me personally. I want things to go fast right. Because i've in crypto and things fast and like wait why has it taken a six years to get to this point but in reality as you know the arc of time is very long and it takes a lot of time for the world to change for people to internalize that change and adjust their mental models right and a big part of this in a big part of ice than so much time talking and writing and trying to teach and communicate is. It's really about giving people new frameworks mental models to help them. Integrate this new way of thinking these mental models into how they view the world trade. That's really important. I think there's so many. Brilliant people in crypto. Who do this in different ways. So we have this really broad cross section of people communicating a lot of ways talking to a lot of different audiences which is amazing. The we had this fundamental shift happened. Everything got everything else got crazy. It's not that bitcoin got crazy. That everything else got way freaking crazier and what i love is when i talk to people about. Bitcoin bitcoin to extensive. I'm like let me ask you a question. Did you did you. By tesla five hundred and yeah. Of course i did. Like tesla's going to and i'm like okay. So tesla has appreciated more this year than bill. Clinton has tesla appreciated close to seven hundred percent in two thousand twenty yet you bought at the high and they clean appreciated two hundred and fifty percent and twenty twenty yet. You refuse to buy so help me understand right even if we're using the same of dollars even if we're looking at the same volatility measure somehow bitcoin Why and then he will start thinking. They're like wait a minute because math is hard this we know the people just. They're not thinking logically for some reasons for some people when they think about bitcoin their brain goes into like a tailspin and logic goes out the window. But this is again why i think the collectibles narrative is in so interesting to me because when i say to people like do you know what a honus wagner card is. They're like yeah. Of course. I know i'm like i don't know like okay. One honus wagner card is two point five million dollars. Do you think bitcoin at twenty five thousand thirty five thousand forty thousand is expensive in there. Like probably not right. So let's dig into that tesla coin thing. What part of the fact that. Bitcoin is effectively. Founded by an an-and sushi. Who we do not know if it's a he she it what vs on. Musk pop very public. Are we in agreement. That's the toshi was the aliens. Are we doing alias. I'm kidding shocking. Oh every time. I hear that especially in clubhouse. Everyone's like oh yeah. It was created by the alien somebody yeah. Let's not do that you know. I'm already speculating. That twenty two thousand one. The aliens are finally come here and just completely take over. But i don't want to hear that. The ashley also created the nsa taverners been around for a while and then there's a holiday larue like there. What what part in in psychology because you talked to a lot of institutional investors to you talked to a lot of big money. What part of that psychology. That one you have a very public figure with ilan and then too you have associate whom no one really knows who it is what it is. What part of that you place until list. Yeah so i actually think. Bitcoin and tesla are very similar in one regard both are aspirational and let me explain what i mean by that. Bitcoin invites you to conceptualize the world in a different way. Tesla what eon has done with business. Ilan has memed a new reality into existence. The way he talks about tesla right is completely detached from the economic realities of that business. Completely detached from the economic realities of that business but it doesn't matter because the vision that ilan describes the persona that he has the cult of personality he's created around himself is aspirational grit song by the way cult of personality. That's a great song. it's also great like psychological phenomenon. And what. I think eli done so effectively is. He's the zeitgeist okay. Markets are just sentiment machines. And it's it's been really interesting. Because every value investor. I talked to like twenty twenty. Made their brains explode. It literally made their slowed. They're looking at these stocks trading at fourteen hundred two thousand three thousand acts he for pe ratio rate and their brains are exploiting. That's our valued. And i'm like you forgot that nothing acid matters anymore. We don't live in the world that you lived in two years ago. this is not about value. We live in a world where there is a lot of uncertainty uncertainty about the future uncertainty about the stability institutions uncertainty about our role in this world. That's unfolding and in times of uncertainty. What people look for is vision. Right and what elon. Musk articulates when you talks about going to mars when you talks about. Putting for tesla on mars. That's vision right. I think satory she in so many ways and what we're doing with. Bitcoin is very similar. And i caught this. I've been really obsessed with the idea of building cathedrals lately. It's like five hundred years ago. Right if i was a visionary and had suggested for the future and i wanted to express that the only way for me to create something that withstood the test of time right to create quote unquote immutable. Truth was to build a cathedral and cathedrals took hundreds of years to build and people who built them dedicated tremendous amounts of resources to building these amazing like technology a technologically very advanced like gravity defying beautiful structures and. Whenever people saw them they would feel inspired. Right like cathedrals were how we painted a vision for the reality we wanted to live in. Okay tesla is a cathedral. Bitcoin is a cathedral. The stocks that are soaring the assets that are doing well their assets that are aspirational right and their people. Whether it's a non community of people an individual it's groups of people who believe in a vision for the future that is radically different from the future. We live today but it creates a motion. Right people look at it and they're like that is beautiful. And i wanna live in not future
"bill clinton" Discussed on Can He Do That?
"I shall resign the presidency effective at noon it time all right with me as David Maraniss. He won the Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of Bill Clinton's presidency and he's also the author of the first in his class. A biography of Bill Clinton. It's great to have you back on the podcast. You're you're all the way back on our ulysses s grant episode sewed. Now you've returned if paint a portrait for me of Bill Clinton's childhood and in in particular. What in his early story you think should make us? You know surprised on the one hand and not surprised on the other hand that he ended up becoming president. Well he certainly came out of nowhere. southwest Arkansas. Born in Hope Arkansas. Small town near the border with Texas In August of nineteen forty six The first wave of baby boomers He was born without a father. His a father had been killed in a car accident a few months before little billy was born. He was born with a different name. He was William Jefferson Blythe. That was his father. You're he was born with essentially two women fighting over him His mother Virginia Cassidy and her mother. Edith both both of whom were nurses and had very different personalities. But you can see from the beginning sort of both of those personalities in the later. Bill Clinton Edith Cassidy was very regimented. She would wake him up in the middle of the night to feed him Virginia his mother was much looser and freer career. A free willing personality and both of those are parts of Bill Clinton. The one thing they had in common was That they voted over him and they thought he was special and he was going to be something someday when he was five years old. His mother remarried That's where he got the name. Clinton Roger Clinton was was an alcoholic He was part of the fairly established family in hot springs. Arkansas although it was the brothers others who would who are in politics or in business and Roger was sort of the near dwell of the family but very appealing attractive charismatic. And in Bill Clinton's mother fell in love with with him and I would say that another aspect of Clinton's character that you can see from their childhood is sort of as has the child of alcoholic always trying to Sort of bridge the gaps in the family mend the fences and Gordon achieve leave in the outside world to bring some honor back to the family. he was also very good at compartmentalizing from a very early age age. Many of his friends is close friends. would be at the house all the time. It had no idea of the internal dysfunction within the Family Clinton was able they keep that from them for a variety of reasons one being that he did not really have a father another being that his mother was a working mother. Aaron was gone much of the time including a couple of years. She went off to nursing school. In Left Grandmother Bill Clinton was always in need of affirmation and love in love and People he had an incredible need for people from an early age. Some of his his high school friends would would say that He'd invite fight them over to the house just the watch him do a crossword puzzle. You know he was just that he had to have somebody around so I would say that the combination nation of growing up with an alcoholic. Father having this this neediness To be with people both really shaped the politician that would come so everyone talks about his charisma. Even political opponents will say that there's something sort of uniquely powerful and compelling pelling about talking with him and being in a room with him What exactly do you think is behind this? Can you put your finger on it. Well charisma is is a mystery and Bill Clinton is one of those people who has it. Some of it is physical. He had big soft oft warm hands. he was constantly touching people. Heart of it was the way he he was able to Make you feel that you are the the only person in the room and that when he was talking to you it was the most important thing in the world whether he really felt that way or not often he did not but he made you feel that way. he also had an ability to both be intellectual. You know he'd trained the best schools in the country. Georgetown and Yale and Oxford and yet have a down home sensibility so he was able to mix those two in a way that few politicians are so you can see more than either way. I've often said of Bill Clinton Got I mean this mostly as a compliment that he's an authentic floaty in other words wherever he is at that moment. It's the Real Bill Clinton and he can make you feel that that's really him and it is for that moment but it might be a different Bill Clinton in five minutes later and I think that is a part of his personality. That plays into that charisma if the ability to make you feel that what's going on at the moment is incredibly important. He's he's there with you. To what extent did do you think. That's just an innate quality of his versus something that he seemed to to get better and better at over time I would say that's mostly a need. That's not to say that. He didn't work at many other aspects of of his political a personality and character He certainly grew better at a public speaking. He worked incredibly hard at networking and and Developing Ping Literally shoebox full of contacts from around the country at a pretty early age but the actual what you would call charisma Or whatever it was that capacity to to connect with people I think was innate but also political in the sense that he was actually much better at doing that with strangers then with people who knew them too well which is not uncommon among leaders are often much better at connecting with strangers than with their with their nuclear family or with close aides in people work for them? What are some of the character traits of his that you think might be a bit less well-known really yeah definitely has an angry streak in him the purple rage that would come and then go very quickly He is not east. Got a nice Sense of humor. But he's not. He's not very good at telling jokes. You Know Al Gore for instance. WHO's considered wooden? Steph is actually much better jokes than bill. Clinton was Clinton's just Sort of good at at repartee. He's got a near photographic memory if he met someone As a young person if he saw them thirty years later he would recognize them He's probably knows something about maybe twenty or thirty thousand people enough so that when he would meet you he would remember not just your name but a story about you in a way to connect with you personally. That sort of feeds into that charisma thing so you know. He's got a near photographic memory about everything I would say except his own life and there's sometimes it gets fuzzy okay so just to give the quick occur -nology of his political rise. He attended Oxford University and Georgetown than the law school which is where he met his future. Wife Hillary Rodham mm-hmm and just a little anecdote about their first date They both wanted to go to a museum on campus. That ended up being closed but Clinton got them into it by sweet talking the guard all right so they get through school. Eventually Clinton Returns to Arkansas and he runs for seat in Congress in Nineteen seventy four which he loses a year later he and Hillary got married and then a year after that he was elected. The Attorney General of Arkansas. He does that for two years and then he is elect tin governor of the state. He's thirty two years old. He served one term and then he loses reelection but two years later he's right back at it and he's elected governor again. He ends up eventually serving five terms before deciding to run for president of the United States. Sir David let's back up now and take a closer look at some some of these moments What do you think? There's some a couple of the most important political lessons that he learned earlier earlier in his career before the presidency when he was governor for example well he learned some even before that his first political campaign he worked for the father of one of his girlfriends Judge Holt was running for Congress in Arkansas and Clinton started to learn from that campaign that you have to respond when somebody criticizes U Because judge would not.
