and, in the years since. >> more importantly on a grueling campaign. >> yeah. >> if any body is concerned. you should be the one. if any body should tell us exactly what is going on, you are the one. >> yeah. >> i was glad. today she made a decision. which i think was correct. to, to -- cancel her -- campaign day. >> right. >> to take one more day to rest. but she looked like a million bucks this morning. could tell she is feeling better. >> she has pneumonia. >> yeah. >> some times that can take a while. the recovery. >> it can. >> is it possible she will be away for weeks from the campaign trail? >> no. not a shot. ha-ha. i'll be lucky to hold her back another day. >> the question is also -- why not. because of these questions. release every possible medical record you can. because there is a concern out there, because people saw that video. >> well, there are -- the campaign said they were going to release medical information. don't know what it is.
>> wouldn't you encourage her to release everything. >> i have. encouraged them. >> why not do it yesterday? >> i don't know. the answer to that. not involved in it. >> you are encouraging her to release everything. >> yeah. >> but you know, if -- if a martian came down from outer space and watched america unfold over the last six, to eight weeks. it would be hard to see all of these earnest pleas for disclosure. which are entirely one sided. i mean we also released 40 years of income tax information. almost 40 years. >> people are demanding donald trump release income tax returns all the time. >> nowhere near the same kind of story. you know, we will just see. i don't know itch he f he is go or not. >> he will release his medical records. put more emphasis and pressure on her to release would it not? >> it would be refreshing if the there were one thing in life where he disclosed more than she has. i don't think there is so far. not even one.

>> why are they attracted to donald trump? >> well because he promises -- >> who lives high above manhattan in a luxury penthouse. >> because he told them that he, he is brilliant at rubbing salt in their wound. he makes them dislike other people. and says i will fix it all. and make it the way it used to be. >> why is secretary clinton who has an agenda, economic ajen darks havi -- agenda having less appeal to working class americans than you did. your constituency. she has a program. donald trump is getting more of that vote. why is that? >> that's been steadily the case. started in the 1960s. just kind of going on. a lot is cultural. trying to get the third term of a party winning a third term in a row is difficult.
and i will say again. the level of disillusionment with the economic, political and social order, all over the world is very high. >> you know how to speak to these people, why doesn't she? >> oh, she has done fine where she got a chance to. but, nobody hears most of this. >> last time you ran for president, 1996. you were elected. >> long time agem. >> 20 years ago. 20 years ago. at that time, you made the democratic party a centrist party. there seems to be a consensus today that it moved to the left. people say they witness that in the primaries of this democratic process. in which bernie sanders seemed to move hillary clinton to the left. on trade. on -- on health care. and on other issues. has the democratic party become a much more leftist party than you believed in as president? >> i think not much more.
it's slightly further to the left than it was. the republican party has moved way more to the right. than the democrats. >> true too. talking democrat party. > i know it. i know it. just want to point out. >> this is like physics. every reaction inspires an opposite reaction. but i think there are reasons -- good reasons, why the democratic party should be more populist than it was. and i and i would look to explain why. >> i want you to. that's the word they aplid to donald trump. populist. >> yeah, but there is all kind of populists. there is positive populism. and negative populism. >> go ahead explain. >> no nothing movement was populist movement. basically gave birth to the klan and all that. a populist movement. >> populist says throw the rascals out. >> yeah, throw the rascals out. play on popular passions. but bernie sanders i think was a much more positive populist.
he wanted to do things. had an affirmative agenda. so did hillary. they argued which was better. >> my question, why is this race so close? >> partly because of the time we live in. partly because it is hard for any party to get a third term. partly because -- of the design clammer of every day which doesn't allow people to really, i hope the debates will cure this. to make a judgment, if you look at what she is advocated and what she has advocated. she is advocating -- positive change. how do you build on the good things done in the obama years, but go well beyond it. he is advocating a return to trickle down economics. on steroid. which got us in trouble in the first place. >> of course, donald trump's supporters don't believe a word of that. we'll speak to a number of trump voters when we return. you're watching the cbs overnight news.
