I -- speaking of so far so good cal Thomas the standing by.
-- -- -- -- It's nice to hear -- you Jamie thank you very much especially with that introduction.
Absolutely so aren't since what they used to be especially in Iowa.
Well let's take a look at the de Moines register there was a really interesting online -- by Nate Silver in the -- New York Times posted late last night and he rights and on average across the eight races.
Eight election cycles.
The candidate receiving the endorsement of the -- register.
Has outperformed the polls by a statistically.
Insignificant three point margin.
The four Republican candidates in the sample meanwhile he -- have on average done slightly worse.
Then -- -- -- projected so it's kind of a mixed bag but not that big a deal.
The other factor is that fewer and fewer younger people are reading newspapers so they're not even reached by the endorsement.
And what about the fact that -- was mention.
Is that it.
-- Rick Green the editor of the -- -- -- a fine fine newspaper because securities my column of course of course nevertheless it tends editorially.
Toward the left he was on another cable program this morning.
And he was getting his rationale for the editorial board endorsing.
-- He said in -- the endorsement was because the other candidates would contribute to the partisan gridlock that currently group's Washington.
-- -- You I am old enough to know you're barely old enough to know the -- past several election cycles we've heard all these promises about what elect me president.
I'm gonna come in and solve the partisan gridlock we heard that about Barack Obama we heard it about George W.
He extended the hand of friendship to that house speaker Jim -- It never works it.
I just -- I'm amused and amazed when people say that the only way to end the partisan gridlock in Washington from a liberal point of view.
Is for Republicans to do what Democrats want.
When a Democrat president is in the White House and as a Democrat majority in the congress.
The end I had no problem with partisan gridlock because the Democrats get what they want so it's it's a game they play here.
You have any thoughts on North Korea and what President Obama -- -- shouldn't do them.
Well I think he's probably gonna wait and see what happens there's a other front page stories of course Washington -- New York Times today lot of speculation whether it be.
It and who's in his twenties and has been groomed by his father but hasn't hasn't really -- enough yet I think.
To do to tell whether he's actually going to be able to solidify his control of the country there's some generals in that army of theirs which each regularly unlike their people.
Who are are reportedly he had me want to -- for leadership position and I would be the first time that's happened.
In a very very long time.
So I think the president would be wise.
Not to say anything that would exacerbate the situation their press reports this morning that North Korea's fired some kind of -- test -- missile they do that a lot.
So I think you just wait and see attitude -- cautious attitude would be the best approach of the moment.
Everything cautious where North Korea's concerned right getting him.
He's glad I'm gonna unregistered I had another topic before we leave what do you think cal about the fact that we are now out of Iraq.
Well it all depends I mean Iran has been a member of course in all of this some of the united editorialize -- around the country has been.
Kind of relief now we can get back to other things like finishing the job and again in Afghanistan but.
That that's just not gonna happen -- is going to -- I think you're going to see our next cheer us some serious and terrorist attacks.
Efforts to destabilize the Maliki government.
I think you're going to see a more terrorists invading.
Iraq from Iran or those supported were already in Iraq by Iran.
They have done this before even with US troops now US troops have been.
Pretty successful in keeping them out -- hunting them down if they do get in but with -- gone now it becomes very problematic so.
I'm not looking.
Towards stability in 2012 and Iraq I think it's going to be a continued problem -- sometime to come.
I sure hope we don't have to go back.
Cali and drives have a thank you -- Merry Christmas my good news about a thing.
