On the conflict in Bosnia, Baker believes that the U.S. should provide technology, air, naval and logistic support. Europe should provide ground forces.
When asked whom he favors for the Republican presidential nomination he replied, "There are many good Republicans who have worked hard for the nomination; I will support the candidate of my party." As for his political future, he has no plans to run for public office. He said he is content practicing law in Texas. Baker claims that with the American people, lawyers are at the bottom of the pile alongside members of Congress, union leaders and, some would say, journalists. He said, "When people ask me what I do these days, I no longer say I'm a lawyer, I say I'm a politician."
