Our power while Williams spent the week down in Charlotte at the DNC convention yesterday caught up with -- president Obama's key advisors Valerie Jarrett take -- -- -- grant you three things coming at their true that you met with Hillary here.
Early on about -- MVP okay.
-- okay thank you called off the bin Laden raid three times.
Not a single time alone three times never had a conversation with the president about -- -- didn't want me that you never ones that you kicked out bill -- Rahm Emanuel of course not they're from Chicago their own and that -- -- -- -- on that note the president that you.
Push the president's hand in terms of requiring churches.
Church affiliated institutions to offer birth control as part of their health insurance we -- that that recommendation kaine and Kathleen.
All right Warren joins us now from Washington you -- a lot of those questions there I want and by the way your education special was terrific.
But tell us -- What do you think of marriage she happy.
She is -- -- -- questions but I mean.
Not a -- if -- -- big -- but you know her aides -- around this thing in case Toews who's a producer with the five was with me and they were telling her to cut off the interview and then.
At one point -- -- -- the path that you're gonna ask me three things because then I went on to ask her some added questions.
And -- cheat -- -- is okay but it was clear I was pushing the limits there with her you know.
She's known the president for 21 years she is his closest advisor everybody's profiling -- -- the real power.
In the Obama White House Thabeet was they -- his mother figure whatever but.
You know when I think are you really his -- -- -- I'm not that old.
You know I listen to your question you -- her and about 45 minutes later I heard the answer actually did pack a lot of those questions that -- -- question one on this.
I am credit watch -- get my email I want to suggest.
Jarrett if thought it was it is there anything in the last four years that President Obama did wrong.
Well you know I think Richard Lovett was after the -- okay how how does.
I he has every -- but you know when you ask her questions like that she keeps coming back the idea.
That the president is inclusive like I asked her about Sandra Fluke you know I think hey Bill Maher said worst thing about conservative women -- -- the president didn't say anything about that.
And she said look that nobody questions this president in terms of his ability to reach out the people to be inclusive.
So I think she's really Smart invasive didn't give me great answers even though I thought the questions were quite pointed OK I want to move onto another -- Our view in view here on site you get -- first when I promise.
No huge that you didn't move our -- to -- ten people oftentimes -- hope vice president Biden's that this thing about put your back and -- spend their charges that the Romney campaign is race beating.
With their welfare attacks will work to welfare requirement they think of the -- watered down.
And finally -- their charges that with the voter suppression effort.
In terms of voter ID requirements by the company that that is racially motivated.
Is there a racial element of this campaign that's.
To -- to your mind dangerous and unfair that people will say that UN the president playing the race.
No I'm not concerned about that at all because I know what the president wakes up each and every day thinking about.
Is how to move our country forward trying to make it an inclusive currency had a -- -- that there is room for everybody at the table.
Are blind not to play the way -- -- a regular credit risk to that question Cuba you on this wanna -- Yeah idea I mean one coming away from that and be spending that time that she did with -- do you sense -- that you know she really does have the driving force in the power within the administration and presently and you think she's gonna continue to.
OK a really absolutely you know what struck me was she is so intense I don't know you know how long -- we can hold your stay here.
But she was staring right in my eyes the whole time that really struck me that this woman.
Is on her game and she's got the president's back I think she sees herself.
As his tough guy in that -- has that other people may have political or personal ambitions.
Her only ambition is the president's best interest and she feels that that's her role.
And she's gonna protect him -- I think during the interview.
The reasons -- -- -- volleys questions I think.
If that she wanted to make sure that she was on -- wasn't doing -- answer me she's gonna deliver the president's -- -- one on the list a -- -- here did you wanna as your question.
Well I guess the one things I think I would have been interested to here is why I haven't had a cabinet meeting since January at the state of the union why they had -- -- jobs council.
I mean does she feel any responsibility.
In the situation -- there and now they knew the jobs numbers were going to be that they're going to be and then not really done anything to protect the president on that level.
Well no I think that from her perspective look she feels that the president has a plan and I asked that question I think you know.
You know given the numbers and given the fact that.
People conservatives are always saying hey look at these numbers are we better off than we were four years ago actually -- I opened the door I think so how do you feel the you're so close to president do you feel that he has improved the economy.
And -- that look this president's working hard he has a plan and he what he went into the same -- that you heard during the president's speech last night.
So she said you know he was the build infrastructure all like kind of that the -- -- I think a lot of it is affecting you that this points they have bite -- that's exactly what she -- she didn't get off -- -- While we have just a few -- a Greg has a serious question where.
Guys it's gonna do I love -- terrible twos and the guy goes.
That's good they got the wrong guy wrong orbit and -- Gallup poll came on Joseph the Obama got a big -- didn't -- of course lost ground.
Yeah like you know I don't know if you know this is -- -- amazing to me that the audience the audience even -- Wednesday night when the football game was on.
Was bigger for Bill Clinton and it was wore the same night during a Republican -- convention.
I -- marry the size of the audience and the bond the go I think that was deteriorated in your greatest job and good for Obama for are -- -- -- --
