David Frost on George H.W. Bush: "He knew what he was determined to do"

Piers Morgan is in London tonight and all this week leading up to the royal wedding. Earlier today Piers sat down with Sir David Frost, the man behind the film "Frost/Nixon" for a revealing interview that is set to air tonight. Piers asked Sir David if he could choose one person to lead the country he was living in, who would it be? He said George H. W. Bush.

"The reason is I just found him somebody who – – he was wise," he said. "He was cautious, he knew what he was determined to do." One thing that stood out from the rest: "he was a man of his word."

Catch the full interview with David Frost as well as interviews with Katie Nicholl, Ozwald Boateng and others on "Piers Morgan Tonight" at 9pm ET/PT. For behind the scenes footage head to the facebook page or @PiersTonight twitter account.

    It will be seriously REMISS of you if you do not do a story on this Queen's Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment's trooper Denton John.

    Unbearable to watch the Frost/Morgan interview. Very little about the Royal Wedding. Way too much about Watergate and Frost/Nixon and other Frost stories that we have heard too many times. Isn't Piers in UK to make each night leading up to the Royal Wedding exciting reporting about all aspects of this event. If he wanted to go back in history couldn't Piers have focused on British Royal History/Weddings/marriages and the likes? Historical significance of Westminister?

    It certainly wasn't the time to rehash the Watergate/Frost/Nixon interview. Now we have lost all interest in tuning in to Piers Morgan wedding reporting. Why David Frost rehashing these few days leading up to wedding?

  7. sincerily yours,p

    Bush is going to go down in history as the empty-suit president who says publically he will do it one-way but intentially does it the complete other way. I realize that power corrupts-but come on guys,enough is enough draw that line in the proverbial sand.

    Bush to be a power broker for a complete human being, if possible-if plausible can finally walk around with that sanguine look on his face because of the look of defeatism or perhaps maybe that of losing his wallet or best friend-i do beg to differ. In absolutions forever with my head always up high.

    Thank you, too, for your interview with Sir David Frost. I remember his great interview with Sammy Davis. (perfect example of how David just lets people roll).So sad to hear about the watch being stolen. If only the robber knew how precious it really was.

  10. truth shall set u free,

    Bush will go down as a has been reliving past glories-unlike the Iraq fiasco to the chagrin of countless Americans.Mcain-is from worst to extreme -a typical rabble rouser in the making.Mcain-instills fear as his prime motivator amongst americans-you will see what i mean,in living colour-too.

  11. truth shall set u free,

    Trump a personage who has been living in glass houses for years and years dont you remember what dad tried to teach you about not to throw stones.Dont you realize to judge is to be judged and when that happens all your money wont help you-you will see what i mean too, just keep on trying to be the straight-man Donald.

    Trump keep it up with all your attention seeking rituals and when that happens you will be the true apprentice that you are-nothing more alot less in all actualities.

    Trump with forever mainly on ones mind the two-main things that are stackable in Trumps mind is his money and the unstoppable B.S. Logic. that is also unreachable.Donald needs to take a crash course in ethics as well as one to be a human being.You will see what i mean one-day. Too.

  15. another life to live.

    Trump take your suitcase and hit the road because your middle of the road politics are not welcome here nor your disruptive agenda as you see fit. Today not tomorrow your procrastinations will not even bear fruit-you will eventually see to learn anew without being skewed in the processies. You know-something like that too.

  16. anew begining too.

    Trump are you okay? did you take your medication? Those thoughts of yours are not preordained so get off your soapbox and leave obama alone.Dont you know his plate is full without some rabble-rouser with his attention seeking rituals stirring the pot.Dont you know tough guy ,the story behind too many cooks stirring the pot? Just remember donald what dad tried to teach you in your troubled youth about when you live in glass houses whatever you do dont throw stones.

    Mcain isnt close to presidential material nor his walk through the tulips in Libya scores any points with me but be it as it may if he is willing to go that extra mile and i dont mean maybe and show his willpower and virtual stamina and stand up to Israels illegal settlements and i mean not just mere lip service either.Maybe then Israel that its not just them in the overall equation and we are all gods people and he is very saddened by their one sidedness.

  20. foreveryours,

    Trump must get pretty lonely with only him-himself -the onlyone that is really there.Irealize that politics makes pretty sad bed-fellows or strange Palins forever waiting for mr. right for her ticket to ride.Thanks but no thanks for the tea-party Sarah Palin blusters.

  21. foreveryours,

    Sarah Palin s adages are to keep obama vestiges pressured beyond compared.Liken that to apples to oranges but in reality keeping her pregnant teenage daughter pried and obvious out of the damaging politically u.v. rays.After that was fiercly contested by Mcain in order to politically ride with him.

  22. foreveryours,

    Its funny that after the environmental disaster in the gulf of Mexico that Sarah Palin no longer says drill baby drill because her script writer is in overdrive.Time for another cup of tea at the party she blusters as mcain looks on citing damage control which is always in tow,he musters.

  23. foreveryours,

    Trump i got news for you since you insist on to be in the public domain-there you are without remorse for being a disruptive influence in obamas life.Talk about riding someones shirt-tails to lift himself out off the doldrums of his lifestyle espescially having done that seen that 1000s of times and needing a viable change before midlife totally sets in to a crisis.Donald your not last will and testament or even still judge and executioner-what gives you the right? The sweat would really become apparent if say the internal revenue service investigated his back taxes for say the last ten years.Trump those skeletons are in your closet too-remember Donald for what its worth you cant lie to yourself or the guy upstairs no matter how many times you justify it in a vain attempt to sound it better.

  24. suddenly.

    Remember Trump de lump the curse of madame curies salon when you were a troubled youth-you tri to stiff her with one of your famous port-dated cheques-for the removal of donalds virgin-hood. What did you subsequently say-ah yes,your fired because madame curie tried to make you the true apprentice-so she cursed trumps eyebrows and they have been growing together since-his troubled youth.

  25. sincerilyyours,

    You know trump i guess you think all your money gives you a license to be rude and insolent towards the president-i dont think so you two-faced back-stabbing troubled-youth who never became aman.You would never be my president of my americans,my liege or and i mean this sincerily-my boy whose true-colours showed un beknowest.Ha-ha your what the famous author said-the unperson.
