PERVEZ MUSHARRAF, FORMER PRESIDENT OF PAKISTAN: Yes.

BLITZER:  What was that about?

MUSHARRAF:  Nothing.  He wanted to meet.   Maybe exchange views on exactly what it would be - a talking off –

BLITZER:  Did you get the impression he's thinking of running for president?

MUSHARRAF:  Well, I think - I did, yes.

BLITZER:  You did?

MUSHARRAF:  Yes.

BLITZER:  So you think he will?

MUSHARRAF:  You need to ask him, but I think - I thought - I did get that –

BLITZER:  I mean, I agree with you.  I think he will run for president, too, but I just - I haven't met with him personally, you did.

MUSHARRAF:  Yes.

BLITZER:  But you came away from that meeting –

MUSHARRAF:  Yes.

BLITZER:  - thinking he's going to run.

MUSHARRAF:  Yes.
