'This Week' Transcript: Secretary Hillary Clinton, Sen. John McCain

TRUMKA: Oh, absolutely. Look, they have -- they had a different strategy. Theirs is a highway strategy. This country went on a low-wage, high-consumption strategy some time ago, cut wages for everyone. The major driver of the economy in the United States is consumption. You can't consume unless people have money in their pocket.

AMANPOUR: And on that note...

DONOHUE: Two points, quick.

AMANPOUR: Very quick.

DONOHUE: Consumption -- people are saving their money, and we're manufacturing more than we ever have.

AMANPOUR: Both of you, thank you very much, indeed, for joining us.

And the Sunday funnies are next, so stay with us.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: And now the Sunday funnies.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

STEWART: Let's get ready to Romney!

(CROSSTALK)

ROMNEY: Rick, you've had your chance.

(CROSSTALK)

STEWART: Do you know how hard it is to get a look of shock from someone in Las Vegas?

O'BRIEN: President Obama's TelePrompTer was stolen. Police are on the lookout for a thief who is eloquent and spreading a message of hope.

COLBERT: There are many reasons why Cain is surging.

CAIN: When they ask me who's the president of Ubeki-beki-beki-beki-stan-stan, I'm going to say, you know, I don't know. How's that going to create one job?

COLBERT: It won't create one job, because all of our jobs have been outsourced to Ubeki-beki-beki-stan-stanians. I just hope that Herman Cain did not offend their president, Chappa-loppa-dippa-doppa-dee.

AMANPOUR: Coming up next, "Next Week in Politics," your cheat sheet to the 2012 campaign.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: And now, "In Memoriam."

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PIERPOINT: They gather and open with a prayer and then begin their protest march.

CORWIN: So they've given up. They've finally done in, and the rat is dead in an alley back of the Wilhelmstrasse. Take a bow, G.I. Take a bow, little guy. The superman of tomorrow lies at the feet of you common men of this afternoon.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

AMANPOUR: We remember all of those who died in war this week. The Pentagon released the names of six servicemembers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: And now for a look at what's coming up next week in politics.

The Obama jobs tour winds through Glitter Gulch Monday, when the president visits Las Vegas.

On Tuesday, he's Jay Leno's guest on "The Tonight Show."

Mitt Romney makes like it's the general election already, with a swing state jaunt through Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. And he'll nod to the primary to the primary in New Hampshire when he files his official paperwork to get on the ballot.

Rick Perry rolls into South Carolina to formally unveil his flat tax proposal.

And Herman Cain's campaign/book tour hits Texas and Illinois.

We'll be right back.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

AMANPOUR: That's our program this week. Join us next week when our guest will be Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates. He'll tell us how to put America back to work and back at the forefront of global innovation. We'll see you all again next week.
