So Herman can there's going to be another debate -- Nevada.
And Herman Cain according to the New York Daily News -- President Obama what does that mean really hit it.
First of all -- generic Republican has been being President Obama for some time.
And when matched head to head the only candidate who really has.
At this point on the Republican side can't close the president beating him are statistically tied -- Mitt Romney now to have her McCain their shows that his message.
It's frankly resonating -- -- has one.
Every single debate almost without question the last one at Dartmouth might have been the only one you could say well Mitt Romney actually.
We have stepped up his game in South Carolina the first time that most of the nation saw her McCain.
The overwhelming consensus was He had the right message He was the right guy.
He just took a little time to get heated up now he's right there right at the heels of the president.
The issue for her McCain's gonna be this primary caucus schedule which is number one very accelerated number two highly focused on such a small targeted group of voters.
Episode number three means does -- -- have the organization.
As as it stands today He doesn't but does that mean He can't build it I don't think that these are pretty.
Short timeframe to get that done though but you know what I ended -- -- doing.
Well what's -- this there's always been.
On both sides this this whole tradition of keeping New -- the first in the nation and and and I was the first caucus.
A bigger state like Florida starts to feel like wait a minute isn't it about time that states like us much more reflective of the country much larger in terms of a political importance have a little bit more say you have these issues in the democratic primary 2008 Florida did a very similar.
Maneuver were punished by the DNC because -- so that -- that's what's happened is Florida moved up.
But it didn't keep itself to give itself any any -- because everybody else moved up when -- it's all to gain more power in selecting the nominee.
Can understand how everyone wants to be the most important and influential I I see that but it Herman Cain.
-- needs money because He had a little bit of a bomb after the straw poll in Florida and people started to pay attention.
But President Obama is out on the bus tour and he's meeting in creating in the money's coming in like nobody's business and He thinks he'll raise a billion dollars should anybody else even -- -- Was there -- bother and I think the I think we are really I visited -- -- keep my money in the bank -- you were saying earlier you asked me that Herman Cain and whether he'll sell file and you -- Romney could also.
Bloomberg certainly has in the past Mayor Bloomberg in New York.
A billion diet.
It's it's the economy it's a lot of money but just all Herman Cain has to do is go back to -- -- dean.
In 2004 to see that money isn't everything Howard Dean was was ahead in the polls.
Raising a tremendous amount of money probably a precursor to the Internet fundraising that -- so would Obama in 20072008.
But all we had left with his screen at the -- -- the day because He lost.
And five dollars a person in this country can add up the kids -- -- that's actually an excellent point the Howard Dean campaign.
Cultivated -- the grassroots progressive base of the Democratic Party in a way that.
Really hadn't happened and at least effectively in a long long time and Obama definitely picked up on I think a lot of that infrastructure her McCain has.
The time because his message is the one that most Republican voters in this primary seemed to be.
Most attracted to because it's so simple and it's so clear.
And at the same time so broad and sweeping it really revolutionize this the way we think about collecting taxes in America.
They're spending money as a government in America so.
If there's one lesson all these professional politicians can alert from the one Diana -- -- is not a politician at all.
It's have a message -- that people could understand and buy into and you might have that same kind of success the more impressive polling numbers for -- McCain in my opinion.
Are in the state by state polls he's number two in South Carolina -- -- ahead of Rick Perry in New Hampshire he's in the top three in Iowa that's all very impressive numbers for.
A gentleman who has not spent a lot of time campaigning -- and he's not skipping any of those states when.
