what was successful was the surge because at the time of barack obama's inauguration, iraq was secure. it was fragile, but there was a stability there that was abandoned. the creation of isis has been created by the void that was filled and i think that's the lesson of history is that you geeshet to stick with it to make sure you create stability. and what trump is talking about is conspiracy theories. literally talking about impeaching the president. everybody got the same intelligence information and great majority of the people concluded he had weapons of mass destruction. >> let me ask you about your quest for the presidency. you pin finished sixth in iowa, fourth in new hampshire and fifth in south carolina. what when dow 'do you have to start winning? >> i think we'll finish better.

the country and of congress versus the white house. >> he says the president really has two ways to go. a conventional pick like federal appeals court judge sri srinvasan who was unanimously confirmed by the senate three years ago. but guess who else was a consensus pick by voice vote to the federal appeals court. clarence thomas and look how contentious his supreme court nomination was. >> this today is a travesty. >> reporter: the point, a nomination to the highest court is a whole different ball game. >> we try to draw analogies and parallels but ultimately it comes down to political argument. >> reporter: with republicans blocking any nominee the president could make like attorney general loretta lynch.
