During an interview to be aired Tuesday evening, Morgan asked his honored guest, “Which people that you’ve ever met have really impressed you?”
“I think Nelson Mandela,” responded the Dalai Lama. “Of course as individual, individual person, I love President Bush.”
“Which one?” asked Morgan.
“The younger one,” said the Dalai Lama
Morgan incredulously responded, “Really?”
“Really,” he clarified. “As a human being. Not as a president of America. Sometimes his policy may not be very, very successful. But as a person, as a human being, very nice person. I love him.”
