Excited about the idea of running for president that you felt in your heart it was something he should consider you encouraged him.

Do you think he still encourage and run.
Excellently it was -- right choice for us tonight we had several people though and I mean many people were encouraging him to run.
We discuss it -- as a family and our children are all and then.

They feel like you're fighting for the soul of this country -- -- -- that.
We really do with that what we're at a dropping off the impetus and we don't we don't like the direction that our country is going.
And I think that we need to get back to our founding fathers in the -- principles that our country was built upon.
As a woman I have to take one of the reasons why aren't really mind him getting at this race.
I'm concerned about the safety of our country.
And affecting my children my grandchildren.
And I want always had that -- -- -- I believe precarious Manning can keep us.
Part of this whole process that you have had to live through as a family -- the debate process which is -- I -- -- for every candidate how tough has it been for you to watch her husband's struggle in some of these debates and and how do you encourage afterwards.
I think he's really done -- yes he's -- a couple of little blenders.
I can't stand the debates I'm going to be honest with you I'm so nervous -- -- line.
I think he's really really done very well.
I think when he can articulate that message that he's been doing very well accidentally -- I think the American people get to know him.
After he -- remember the -- that he would like to eliminate almost a conversation you had with him after that to me now with just one of those.
Moments in time -- you're you're human and -- just telling them opting you know I think that's you know with the word I had not yet have been that would me.
I tell him liking -- really.
Wanted him to do not believe him.
I've got to be hard as a spouse have to watch the attacks on hand and questioning his record questioning his positions where -- stands.
Of error for spouses on the Caleb had other challenges Callista Gingrich delving into her personal life with news.
I'm great -- with allegations against her husband any advice to those women measure all -- -- on the trail together.
Our spouses are truly getting back to this country.
And so many people don't get to see this through our -- so I would just have to -- enjoy it if it's much if you can't don't look at those files.
Don't read the negative media.
You know it's not gonna help -- get through today.
I was in a place for people are very vocal about their faith that something that's important to you in the governor's well what -- play for you.
Faith is very important to us I think that's how we get through that day is when relying on Earth Day.
It is something you law had been very public about its -- secret.
Can be used to -- if your husband has been brutalized because of his feet what do you mean -- Well I think part of it is we knew we would be scrutinized I wasn't quite so sure about the national media attention that apple learned a lot of lessons along the way.
And I've learned there's a camera on me most of the time now some much more guarded than I -- -- I want to ask you that you -- the issues you're -- -- -- -- the daughter of a physician.
Do you think that there is -- need for Health Care Reform in this country and how do you think the president's -- -- getting it right or wrong is there any merit to what he's trying to do.
I grew up in this I saw have a community respected and loved my father because he -- one on one person he was really bad side position.
I want every American have that same opportunity to have the choice that they want.
To have that position that they want that's another reason I really encourage -- to get into this race.
I don't like socialized medicine.
And that's a path -- telling.
You mention the word socialism.
Became an -- scares a lot of people when that comes up do you think this president.
Is socialist some of his policies are socialist how would you characterize them.
I truly do and my father in 1970 -- the moment we check the dollar from the federal government.
They will tell us -- to start practicing.
And I've seen it as a nurse in a hospital.
An administration that certainly seeing that how we practice medicine by a book and have the diagnoses.
And how that you are paid by that and I don't think that's why I think truly.
You know we need to be paying for the very best that we can get so it to me yes it is socialized plan some people think public.
What they want to national health care nationalized healthcare.
That is what it is in my opinion.
On this journey -- chance to build friendships with some of the other spouses that are really probably the only people who know exactly what.
You're going through this point.
