c-eastwood.jpg Clint was at Pebble Beach with Neil Cavuto and spent some time talking about his films, Iraq and George Bush. Cavuto kept prodding Clint in that swarmy style he has about the big, bad "Hollywood liberal" theme, but Clint gently steered him away from it.

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? Eastwood replied that there was no agenda, other than to tell a good story and make you think. 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.
