[clinton vintage] performance noted by gop

Interview continued ...

CLINTON: You didn't ask that, did you? Tell the truth, Chris.

WALLACE: On the USS Cole?

CLINTON: Tell the truth, Chris.

WALLACE: With Iraq and Afghanistan, there's plenty of stuff to ask, sir.

CLINTON: Tell the truth, Chris.

WALLACE: With Iraq and Afghanistan, there's plenty of stuff to ask, sir.

CLINTON: Tell the truth, Chris. Did you ever ask that? You set this meeting up because you're going to get a lot of criticism from your viewers because Rupert Murdoch's supporting my work on climate change. And you came here on false pretenses and said that you'd spend half the time talking about --

WALLACE: I --

CLINTON: About -- you said you'd spend half the time talking about what we did out there to raise $7 billion plus, in three days, from 215 different commitments, and you don't care.

WALLACE: I -- President Clinton, if you look at the questions --

CLINTON: I thought you'd (have an audience here ?).

WALLACE: You'll see half the questions about it. I didn't think this was going to set you off on such a tear.

CLINTON: You launched into it. It set off on a tear because you didn't formulate it in an honest way, and because you people ask me questions you don't ask the other side.

WALLACE: Sir, that's not so.

CLINTON: And Richard Clarke --

WALLACE: That is not true.

CLINTON: Richard Clarke made it clear in his testimony --

WALLACE: Would you like to talk about the Clinton Global Initiative?

CLINTON: No, I want to finish this thing.

WALLACE: All right.

And finish the thing, Clinton did.
