    This is a rush transcript from "Your World," August 31, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

    NEIL CAVUTO, HOST OF "YOUR WORLD": Unique, rousing,

    entertaining, just some of the words to describe Clint Eastwood's chat with

    President Obama last night.

    And then there's this.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    LAWRENCE O'DONNELL, HOST OF "THE LAST WORD": Clint Eastwood

    was a disaster.

    AL SHARPTON, HOST OF "POLITICS NATION": They did not

    think that he would get up there and erode in the front of the whole world like

    he did.

    RACHEL MADDOW, HOST OF "RACHEL MADDOW SHOW": I don't -- I don't -- I don't know.

    It's -- I don't -- that was the weirdest thing I have ever

    seen at a political convention in my entire life.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    CAVUTO: I was at the convention. Mike Huckabee was at the

    convention.

    I -- maybe we were at different conventions.

    First of all, this was a silly thing. It wasn't meant to be

    this great, cerebral moment where a guy like you takes the stage or another

    governor takes the stage. You know, am I missing something?

    MIKE HUCKABEE (R), FORMER ARKANSAS GOVERNOR: No, I think you

    got it exactly.

    Clint Eastwood -- it was the surprise vice guest. It was in

    part I think to respond to the Super Bowl ad, where some people had surmised

    that he was out there supporting the Obama bailout of the car companies.

    CAVUTO: Right.

    HUCKABEE: He came back and walked that back and said, no,

    that had nothing to do with it. It was about America.

    So, Clint Eastwood is a great American and he loves this

    country. He is conservative and tends to lean a little libertarian. He's very

    comfortable to go there. I thought it was a -- you know, it was Clint Eastwood,

    for gosh sakes.

    CAVUTO: You know what happened? For those -- he wasn't

    reading any script.

    HUCKABEE: Yes.

    CAVUTO: He -- so we noticed a teleprompter, which I noticed,

    because mine goes down and just the show -- move up a little bit -- the show is

    finished.
