Clip: 12/04/2018 | 10m 24s

James Baker, who served as secretary of state in the first Bush administration, was a close personal friend of George H.W. Bush for decades. As part of our remembrance of the former president, Judy Woodruff sits down with Baker to discuss how his path and Bush’s first crossed in Texas, a momentous 1980 telephone call from Ronald Reagan and Bush’s lifelong commitment to “selfless public service.”
