David Rockefeller turns on the snot and discusses how Bush is just not like the Republican Old Guard: "[He] was raised in Texas, didn't travel to Europe, and unlike his father, didn't know the pleasure of discussing things with people across the world before becoming president."

David "Never met a dictator he didn't like" Rockefeller explains the reasoning behind all those friendly encounters with Castro, Boumediène, Pinochet, Botha, and Saddam Hussein: "I've always thought it useful to meet people who have different thoughts from you. It's the best way to bring about change in the world." See how he changed Myanmar, for example.
