Eastwood on Bush:...(H)e genuinely believes--I just don't happen to believe with him--on making...converting people to a democracy overnight or even in a ten year period. I just think that's a little bit naive to approach it that way...

Remember when Million Dollar Baby came out and the Michael Medveds of the world attacked it because of the euthanasia aspect of the film?

Cavuto only wanted to keep pushing Eastwood to defend scenes which didn't relect the FoxNews conservative/jingoistic viewpoint of the world and Eastwood easily brushed them aside.
