I felt comfortable on the back -- my -- Joseph Trippi a democratic strategist working on the dean campaign.
Worked and Ted Kennedy's.
That's when sort of Ted Kennedy in 1980 and 1980 long time ago that that taught us not to challenge and incumbent president exactly that's that's.
And how you think good can come and you work for Gephardt dean and most recently -- John Edwards who went -- we will go there but hey thanks I was supportive though.
I like the UK LSD and I realize it about two Americas was the right one -- look do with it what we're going -- right now there are two -- out there today what what it -- -- -- about the message but the messenger often.
And then of course let's let's talk about what's going on here I mean Herman Cain it was it was her meant them going on for awhile yes but that we -- we thought they could -- that even without the allegations of sexual wrongdoing if they're -- or -- I can't imagine.
He would have survived as a front -- -- I don't think so I -- you see it every day Jesus -- he's just not ready ready for this I mean I think it's it's a good exercise -- him to go -- also a lot of -- -- and those kind of things -- -- it is about I think I've always -- -- -- he's not running a presidential campaign here I -- it happens every cycle so there's always a couple people and it summer and it's for -- maybe a cabinet job -- others -- -- a period yeah yeah yeah or you're exactly.
I think that's why Biden went.
You really believe -- oh yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Which really doesn't play and it but I think it might have -- pledged some of the other people that momentary bumps up in the in the polls you know I think and I.
Thought for some time that Newt has the best chance of the non Romney.
They can actually hold on running down tonight -- 2% I think I think and has actually a real shot in India with -- with the nomination I mean there's no one else standing I mean who else is his last we Huntsman and you don't think Romney's inevitable.
Oh no not at all I think Romney's on the weakest front runners I've seen in it in.
In my I think he is the weakest front right you don't think Romney has a better chance of -- Obama than almost anybody else.
He certainly -- better than anybody else against the.
Per unit you know.
He this year reminds me a lot of 1984 on the democratic side there was this guy named Fritz Mondale the -- for a former vice president from Minnesota.
On the border with Iowa.
-- -- Like -- New Hampshire in in Massachusetts.
-- Yes senator.
The movie the right stuff -- just come out he was.
Everybody in the media was sure it was -- -- on him and he went to single digits after his rocket ship into the race.
Then you had any guy -- Alan Cranston who started beating Monday on all the straw votes.
In the press would -- Cranston land and then.
A guy named Gary Hart got 19% of the vote took second place in Iowa and everybody finally said.
That's the other guy yeah.
And it -- rewrite -- scandal after that it BS but what I'm saying is this really makes me that's what's going on.
This is a party in search of the other guy.
And and so that's.
Perry that's -- that's and when we may find out who the other guy is yet he's going to give.
A run for his money today Romney's not prepared for this I mean just this is being I -- Mondale and in 84.
We lost like eighteen straight states after the world figured out who the other guy was and we we did win the nomination yet but we earned it with Yahoo! is giving -- -- It was Gary Hart who is Gary and Gary -- Venus and eighteen states.
Everything we do we eat it.
So what did Barack what is Mondale -- cart uses the I because I think he I think Mondale thought he had -- -- he I think -- really wanted to break him.
The barrier again and critical element or it's a wonderful thing to do it.
But I think I think what's going on now is that it.
This party has a weak front runner.
Or firmer as the party is not happy when they keep looking at these other candidates.
They think they see some thing and then there's -- guy blows himself up on it in a debate and I.
Did it already blown themselves with a Tiffany's thing -- -- campaigning in Hawaii when everybody else was an actual states where there -- primaries and you know I EE.
He that's that's true but now -- you've watched the mall implode and yeah I guess Romney can win it out of complete default -- don't think that's gonna happen somebody.
Somebody's gonna take second in Iowa.
Or -- -- to win in Iowa and it and that's in this is where it's the real danger for Romney.
Romney's state is New Hampshire.
And everybody knows who he is from Massachusetts -- August.
Iowa picks the other -- in in -- case Iowa picked the other guy then we went to New Hampshire where if Iowa picks the other guy.
That person may beat Romney in New Hampshire why.
The same reasons everything's -- -- gonna win here everybody already knows him up there they've seen him for years as the governor from Matthews has been in the media market -- -- -- -- -- and -- what -- not for him.
So if it's him at forty vs.
All of these other and it gets went on to one person really quickly he could be beaten there and then guess what it.
That person in is and I think the idea that you -- that person.
Today yes I don't know anybody I don't know I mean they're McCain said something that did another.
Did another oops moment I guess yeah they're all they have and he had a moment -- him Milwaukee journal sentinel today the main Rick Perry.
Looked like he knew three things.
That's that's what the moment was like -- -- an imperious actually been doing good sense.
He's usually -- Jack as governor is in I think he had his moment and you know he as he goes -- he can't do it anymore so now reacting to have fun and that Gingrich at the beginning.
Believe he was running for president yes I think he really didn't -- I've got joining -- I think news is the one person.
Who may understand what I'm talking about when I talk about 1984 he's an historian I think he looked at this -- that he did Obama he's figured.
Can I be the last guy standing against Romney like car was against -- I think he's really can -- -- the president of you know -- I don't know if he can beat them or not I think I think the right now I don't see who are now think -- he's going to be you know.
I just don't believe that.
But I do think this I think nude in Obama would be the kind of debate that may be the country.
Ought to have I mean I think it's actually very right people and -- know the issue right they know -- and I think Newt would stand his ground.
You know you you don't we don't you don't have to agree with -- you can you can -- -- but he'd be and I think -- be in real argument about.
The direction the country know this -- -- Flip flopped and all I said this in the primary but now saying that -- the general like we're probably gonna get out of Romney.
I have to I think knew we'd that is standing and it probably -- three of a bunch of money from Fannie -- -- Ireland but I mean -- that no I mean that.
Is is -- could have problems via lol yes he's gonna have problems and his general what I'm saying I think that'd that'd.
The level of the debate might actually be one we're we're you know you could make some kind it.
You know intellectual decision about what you're doing here where is.
I would be any of the others -- just candidates -- Georgia is our guest but if it's not -- is not an.
I can't -- Bachmann.
Not Huntsman can't.
I think it should be -- -- -- -- Atlanta is shutting Huntsman Huntsman is is saying.
Well there'd be another person I think you get it to you there'd be you you we'd actually have a debate about what -- I think Larry Johnson trying to and he is Jerry Johnson and Italy is known is not -- Buddy -- to me is a Smart guy who upbringing in Romer was my.
My I mean gosh I would've -- of -- Romer.
The better man in the debate hello doubt how was -- a guy like Buddy Roemer former Democrat.
Fully -- made.
And yet we have people in in the these debates who have no business being and no I know and Romer was like I mean.
What you knew about them -- truth teller truth tellers I mean you could again disagree with somewhat down -- Man he gave you know always who it was a -- -- -- -- -- has seen him what does it out to Republicans that they would have cane for a period of time.
At the top of the heat.
How could they possibly support -- With even forgetting the allegation well I think actually I think there's a lot of reasons there's I mean that the biggest thing is right now -- on both sides.
There are a lot of people who don't want it who do not want somebody who's been in politics for years there's actually the same but I want somebody who knows -- -- it without the same in a lot of ways the same at deficit -- pushed Obama passed Hillary Clinton I mean.
All the things that we -- The we're gonna help and Hillary and here's this guy was to state senator two years ago they've been in the US senate for two years and it and we and and and so I think I think allows and that same inertia against somebody who knows the ways of Washington.
Which is interesting about new -- because he doesn't if you predict right now it's not going to be running yeah I don't think it's right it's going to be news.
Yeah I think so -- Can can we -- back to find that.
