Former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk, interviewed by CBS News' Brian Goldsmith, talks today about his buddy Barack Obama -- and about his "very good friends" Bill and Hillary Clinton, who, he notes, have been "very good to me." It's a very long Q&A interview in which Kirk tries to choose his words very carefully about the two Democratic candidates -- he's all about the Obama, for whom Kirk's been known to do a little paperwork, but Kirk tries awfully hard not to bad-mouth Hillary Clinton, who he calls "a very gifted public servant [who is] strongly committed and passionate about the issues that she cares about."
