Former Secretary Of State Eagleburger Dies At 80

Lawrence Eagleburger, a longtime diplomat who had a brief term as secretary of state under George H.W. Bush, died Saturday at age 80. Eagleburger was the only career foreign service officer to become a secretary of state. Leslie Gelb, president emeritus of the Council on Foreign Relations, tells guest host Rachel Martin that Eagleburger will be remembered for his unique blend of blunt talk and charm.
