Clint Eastwood on RNC: When you're my age...

Actor Clint Eastwood speaks with CNN in his first television interview since the RNC, telling CNN that he does not care about the reaction to his stand up routine at the Republican convention, which drew more attention on the night Mitt Romney accepted the presidential nomination.
"One advantage of being my age is that you know what can they do to ya?" said Eastwood, 82. "You just have fun and do what you think and then you can say what you think, you don't have to edit yourself."

RNC: Tough primary good for party; discusses Mitt Romney wins

Reince Priebus, RNC chairman, explains why he thinks that a tough primary is good for the Republican party.

Priebus says, “I know that people argue over whether, you know, having a tough primary is a good thing or a bad thing. I just happen to believe that it's good for a party, as you and I have talked about many times.”

He continues, “And I think in the end, independents will come our way based on where we are as far as whether or not we're better off today than we were three or four years ago, where are we in regard to the economy and is it better or worse?"

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs week mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
