-- -- -- -- tonight there is no question sixty minutes interview was a big win.
For -- Obama and Secretary Clinton they got very good PR out of it joining several Washington Fox's senior political analyst for Q now yesterday.
You told Chris Wallace and you think Hillary Clinton should not be described.
As a great secretary of state what.
Well first of -- is not easy to be a great secretary of state -- policy is the province really of the president the secretary of state is the person.
-- his emissary.
And he's expected to -- to directed diplomats to carry it out so that's point one point two is.
That she has worked very hard she's travel all over the place at some record -- 112 countries.
But the list of achievements that can be attributed to poor.
Is is not long and it's not major I mean.
How well as -- reset with Russia worked -- which she was very much involved in in and in starting.
How how are things between Arabs and Israelis closer to peace in before -- -- Iran North Korea their nuclear weapons programs -- they binge retarded held back halted.
No I don't think so.
So you can you look around for a Clinton doctrine has she articulated as a kind of a foreign policy intellectual.
It's a new way of thinking -- -- -- conference in doctrine for.
Foreign policy or -- -- any particular reason I would say not what about major treaties -- she engaged in and in negotiations that led to the to the to do signing a major treaties or any major treaty -- -- and all those questions appears to be no.
And these are the kinds of things that might put you in the category of a great secretary of state I'm not seeing a shift and try to RG certainly worked hard she's -- -- dignity with a certain grace.
And all of that no big blunders and sent to boarding up the wrong thing in the wrong place does -- homework.
But great I don't think great.
Now you do still whipped off a litany of stuff -- you left out the Arab Spring which is developing into a debacle.
Syria another debacle.
One in Steve croft after those questions -- -- -- secretary of state President Clinton right there -- -- just -- a laundry list of hang in all look at this.
Look at that Afghanistan that really gone our way now.
-- and ask any of that.
No he didn't and I've been on the trying to put lots of in his position and I've done some interviews with presidents over the years I remember particularly -- one was.
President Bush 41 and 43 together.
And there was a novelty factor about seeing them there together like that which -- -- me to focus to some extent on on their relationship and what role.
-- the first President Bush and played as an advisor to his son and so forth those questions are kind of natural.
There was some novelty to this interview to -- very unusual croft remarked upon that but he.
The whole interview -- devoted -- to their relationship and guess what they have a group.
According to them a great relationship ways that last word the way I'm not so I'm not saying it is on this thing of -- but it's okay well it's one thing it's one thing to devote part of an interview that.
It's another to kind of basically turned the whole interview over the I don't know what I have -- questions but look I mean both of us know -- and crosscourt right he's good.
Do you think he's good errors and Gasol I think -- I think Steve cross I've always admired pays.
Although I mean how will say this if you look back through the history of the interviews that he's landed with with Barack Obama has never been tough on about that he's never never never have an abomination and.
-- we -- -- the Obama people.
And they still take our calls and they said we -- putting restrictions on -- he could have asked anything we said he had thirty minutes.
I he could ask -- and we didn't -- -- that not I don't dog about Libya -- -- talk about the Arab Spring it on dog tag down they -- -- -- about anything.
So I don't know why there may be I'll get I'll run to Steve someplace in Manhattan and ask them.
But it was a soft interview we didn't really learn anything other than the world is a complicated dangerous place did you know that before Hume did you know the world is a complicated but it was it like OK good I can so -- -- do all that net.
And we learned it again which might have been instructed.
So we got nothing that of that and then you have Hillary -- stand and believe me out I I think red is got -- may -- greater -- -- -- Greta has Greta has her she's only she's added that it tough situation he's got twelve minutes.
It's tough -- you know twelve minutes -- -- -- take twelve minutes with the secretary you know on talk about we got Colin Powell him on that.
We have fifteen minutes from Colin Powell when he see this -- Wait till you see this I look forward to because just a matter of budgeting your time as -- mom taught you the budget.
He can't be for entering -- away with questions like old.
You guys -- feature a little more.
Parents are the that I didn't want to delay -- worried you had enough for me well I'll just say it you know.
And it's always a little difficult to do an interview -- -- president in this sense that that a president is total level of respect and courtesy that other officials including former secretaries of state for example are not view the court so he could do that zeroed and I Taylor is at our gets you at a moment.
-- -- -- a -- even with all that it was a pretty saw that there is no way around and -- and he's in good company have been a lot of soft -- -- the press I presume everybody.
