Former Defense Secretary Bill Cohen joined Andrea Mitchell to discuss the joint statement by all ten living former defense secretaries by both parties calling on the military to stay out of election disputes. He said they issued the joint statement to make sure the message went to not only Pentagon, but also the local ranks in the field. Cohen also said the President is 'capable of virtually anything,' and 'there is no level to which he will not sink in order to achieve his aims.'
