So actually welcome back your microphones former -- senator Scott Brown -- senator.
A great Ellen thank you as a magical and I appreciate very much now you have recently announced you're not running for governor.
And you weren't I would the other day kinda hinting about a run for president what have you -- -- what do you look at that.
Well -- close as anyone knows and every making very big decision like running for.
Changing a job burger meat and getting married or running for political office and takes a lot of thought analysis and planning had determining what the costs are the chatter chatter and I've I've done that I -- that people know by Labor Day and let them know before Labor Day the secrets as to what my process has been.
I have just found that.
I've enjoyed doing some of -- private sector things and I've been doing obviously working with fox has been.
Exhilarating -- hosting -- O Reilly show tomorrow.
Yeah absolutely that's enjoyable obviously I've been working when Nixon Peabody which is an international law firm and speaking all over the country in parts of the world talking about really the message of this and we need to be a larger tent party there is room -- me cruise Paul.
Christie Palin there's room for everybody has no one has a monopoly on good ideas.
And if in fact we're going to be a vibrant and healthy energetic party moving forward with real answers to bring this country together -- we have to start.
Having that larger ten and that's not demonizing and -- vilify somebody because they don't agree 100%.
Yeah I think it's important and I think.
A you know you know also need to broaden out to a -- except people of different skin color and never ethnicity isn't.
I'm presuming then perhaps you have a different view on immigration and some of the hardcore conservatives -- the possible.
Well listen I am a fiscal conservative and I'm national security hawk -- have been out of my Republican credentials -- against anybody's interest somebody to come out and -- -- because I voted XYZ am right now well I'd like to know what their definition of Republican is because of them my recollection.
And being from Massachusetts is as Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill used to fight like cats and dogs go back and drink a little.
Little or whatever card -- and work things out so I guess Ronald Reagan would be considered a rhino.
I agree with Karl Rove who recently said you know we should have he wants the most conservative.
Candidate but who can wind -- he can't win what's the point.
Well that's all that's all good that's actually true I'm not from other parts of the country and vice Versa.
Yet my youth vote is same as everybody else has voted to put gonna continue to.
As -- said demonize and work against members -- our -- party then we're not going to be a vibrant.
Ideas party were going to be full of ideologues are gonna have one way to look at things and quite frankly that's -- What I envision -- party having been I don't envision that's what it needs to be and that's not who I am.
We made a remarkable.
He had and he did a remarkable feat being elected as Republican senator of Massachusetts and I don't know when the last I -- Edward Brooke I think was probably the first and as there hadn't been any sense that right yeah well.
No constitutional -- know.
Congressmen or senators there's we have three out of forty in the -- we have thirty out of 160 in the state and the state House of Representatives.
-- -- 11% of home and it's always been an uphill battle on ten and one night last the last race Romulus -- 23 -- -- a little over seven.
And introduced the numbers Shuster were insurmountable I don't take anything away from senator Warren certainly.
But they have just for them and more -- But sounds to me when I hear you speaking when -- hear -- your messages.
Which is important as this thing for the country I think the country's better we have two strong political parties not just.
-- let me ask you a question and your listeners.
Aren't you all tired and the divisive missing us vs them haves and the have nots that.
A black person is why the rich verses -- mean it that -- you need to take a stand certainly but you also need to have a certain amount of respect him.
And and then treating people with dignity respect and find a way to come up with a -- with a with a solution to move forward -- seventeen trillion dollar national -- We have real problems where -- what was happening and obviously in Egypt and Syria.
All over the world we are and real apparel all in many fronts so -- -- one you know what I'm gonna work with whomever has a good idea.
Take away the authorship and just move our country for.
-- it has been an -- would ever -- obamas for their against in the house are certainly Mitch McConnell wants him out of office more than anybody.
And that I'm not saying that Obama's been the best either -- reaching out to the house or senate.
You -- and but would you say that there's a great deal of resistance almost anything you wanted him.
I would say anything I mean he's had you know -- -- some things passed and some big things some things he -- improv -- commentary maneuvers other things he's.
Work and reached out and gotten consensus so when I have found that when I was there.
That he only called when he wanted something he'd he'd never called justice say you know how's it going there -- -- -- It was there was always the full court press when he checked out and a lot of big issues whether it was working on the Extenders -- Trying to find a way to not shut down the government trying to find a way to.
Define that compromise to have it wasn't for quite frankly the vice president mentioned many issues -- we would have been at different financial situation right.
Having Joseph Biden worked his contacts in the legislative branch seemed -- a minute that's that's a big plus for the president it has to do.
He may not reach out as much as he probably -- writes no oil -- Highly -- are all the news it's the vice president and then rightly so he has those connections I certainly appreciate the vice president efforts he's.
In some respects a regular guy I don't agree with them on a heck of a lot like the person I've -- -- them any time and you know -- that's fine but that doesn't mean I'm gonna agree with a lot of issues that America is a good idea.
-- haven't -- -- for -- that the -- our country forward and it and it stepped us back from the financial abyss were approaching a mall for a.
And I get the sense -- -- appear anxious to get back I mean it's great that you fill in for a -- in -- here on Fox News you get a chance to garment and share your message all over the country.
But I get the sense -- in your heart apart you would like to be serving on a public level again -- Let me misleading you and your listeners -- I -- I don't -- being there.
But I do miss I do -- certainly some my colleague senator -- and and others Lamar and others they have a good.
People like -- number Brothers and older brother to me any Democrats he suggests that I had a great relationship with the with a lot of a lot of Democrats and that's what dish you know that you have to work with people to get -- Just can't walk -- and ignore people and structural and bombs and rocks all the time.
That being said.
I don't miss it all the dysfunctional way that they they were Kerry Reid and Chuck Schumer there just mucking up the works and -- really aren't getting anything done looking forward to the next election.
Because wherever they control they control the senate and unfortunately.
There -- a lot of good things that we can be doing and they just choose to.
And yet you single out Reid and Schumer for -- and those particular.
-- and -- to the leaders of the of the senate they control the senate.
And I know firsthand a lot of the backstabbing in.
Black balling him and underhanded things that they do and it's just it's it's wrong it's that putting their own personal on their party interest -- for a country's interest and it's shameful -- you know that's the way it has.
What would be your dream job.
You're actually I -- -- the mainland -- me sometime you want to do it until.
Until then to let me look at me I'm and I think you'd be great do in the little radio and they're just just let bill know -- authentic strain religious wells Lipton we stuck -- in the executive -- let -- -- Certainly actually I'll be happy to do that you are we have the tape now we have senator's Internet that in admitting dearly like to do it and are kidding aside I had -- order a time -- -- bit.
-- -- -- -- -- -- You know I'm the luckiest guy in the world and I'm not saying that the -- priorities -- you saying that because.
-- -- IEU mom and dad were married and divorced four times each you know and seventeen houses by the time I was eighteen I had a lot of trouble with the law growing up and to think that I would all those challenges that I was able to represent this great country that you can even if it was only for three years I him elected and the.
-- you looking at running for president when -- extent.
Let's finish 2013.
I don't know if you heard but my daughter just got engaged on the congratulations running to do is actually find a way to pay for a wedding and the USA now.
Outlets and I'm gonna take my message to Iowa to New Hampshire to every other part -- quarter of this country.
And see if there's an interest to people.
If people feel that it's its own voice it's lacking then things -- And I don't know interesting is when you mention those particular station know those are the battle that's the states where you go when you think -- -- Alumni put some ninth generation in New Hampshire my wife is six generation from Iowa -- who were on the family farm this past weekend -- You we have a lot of connections there are you know -- -- from the many of the other people considering it so.
Once again I'm not gonna shy away from -- -- saying what I think is important because I don't think that messages is being addressed and.
The governor wouldn't governor be that if I'm a very good stepping stone let's say toward a future and for the white -- -- -- Believe that executive experience on that level really helped to -- -- run for president.
If you can compare people's credentials mighty.
Collect almost two decades of public service successors -- state -- states and the United States senate 34 years in the military still serving in the Pentagon.
Business experience certainly having a business and and and now serving on boards and learning and growing I'm still learning.
And growing I'm happy -- saying I am I'm exhilarated by the opportunities.
I'm getting now I feel I'm growing as a man and and as a as a person and I don't wanna I wanna continue -- that process for awhile.
I don't want to have to drop everything and then you know you know -- hold until everybody in -- -- you know.
Go here do this do that -- want to be able to do I think is right in the in my gut feels good.
