Brent Scowcroft: “Many parts of the party call me a ‘RINO’ – I don’t think I’ve changed my views at all”

The Sunday, April 29th edition of FAREED ZAKARIA GPS included an interview with former National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft (Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush Administrations), about current national security challenges and the state of the Republican party.  On the latter, Scowcroft answered his critics who say he is no longer a Republican and says he feels there is room for people who share his views inside the party – and that the party has been through evolutions before but history suggests it will evolve to a moderate place.  The exchange from this portion of the interview is below:
