Current President Obama shares some of the conservative views of Cleaver presented here, advocated over 20 years ago. Favors private over public enterprise, charter privatized schools over public, "free market" favoritism of the wealthy ("capital") over the poor and middle class, here and abroad.
Cleavers insightful support, on this portion of the interview, for ending the horrendously failed "War On Drugs," an unpopular view then, is now typical of numerous libertarian Republicans, including the late author-publisher-talk show host William F. Buckley, and the late Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman.
Eldridge Cleaver sure had had a long and interesting journey from co-founder of the Black Panther Party, successful novelist, to political prisoner, to candidate for the US Senate.
Quite a dude, and quite another typically excellent Charlie Rose interview of persons in the news.
