Probably day here at Packard bell absent is Doug -- as busy doing something which couldn't be as important as this show but he'll be back -- this in two weeks.
For now in the section we called the big picture which takes a big picture look at the next year leading up to the election.
And you know why we gonna have Obama may be as the democratic nominee but.
Pat you and Doug have been writing consistently for the last year including two weeks ago in the Wall Street Journal and today.
In the Politico.
Piece called draft Hillary now which explains a year.
Long held belief that someone should draft Hillary put her on the ballot in the New Hampshire primary.
Could knock the -- lot of Obama and change the whole.
-- as well the whole race could change dramatically who are you lose us the people have a right to choose this dictating who's allowed to run and not want to -- And you know we're saying people talk about the Arab Spring we saw what happened in Russia.
All of these things -- place.
The Democrats who -- unhappy should have a right to speak to this.
We made the case the lot of other people mentioned herbicides us.
There is a web site up that does not ours we had nothing do with we've heard people go inside but we said look it's two things New Hampshire -- right in state.
It is French propensity.
To do that anyone can vote and -- they're Democrat or Republican Democrats or independents can do that.
And we're not asking her to do anything -- -- -- -- -- undoing we're asking the people we said there are two things one is.
That there -- -- genuine movement there which could be created this environment today in two weeks the secondly that a few Democrats -- means.
Help make that possible by putting the option before voters if -- courageous enough to take the credible to Chicago White House will do them.
But unwilling to stand up.
And the argument is she's the -- that could win she could unite the country.
And we've all and we were at the point of saying it is impossible as our thesis has been that if he gets reelected and there is a good chance he could be reelected.
But he will not be able to govern and that enables this terror of the country apart right because in getting reelected he is -- terror this is the only way he can do when Pratt and deserve.
We're so and so for Republicans had a house were both of congress after what he did it goes -- the Republican nomination.
The chance of working together not that they're working together -- -- words Jim I don't know what he has no.
Interesting governing -- interest in him being reelected -- this is a credit for Democrats who care and by the way of writing -- the working class Democrats.
Which to -- removes a champion of and we have one in the article which I feel.
There's a mixed metaphor but not that much which you -- -- To abandon their talking openly of not caring about white working people.
Flat is part of the real -- of the Democratic Party so -- are you minutes if you jettison a piece of your heart.
Then you're gonna lose your soul -- they wanna be the party of the gentry delete.
That's what they're turning the Democratic Party into it and boom we dissent.
-- that was our -- -- that plays -- something we're gonna do a little bit later but let's talk about it now we talk about it almost every week.
Are they greater today or less today than they were a week ago today.
Third party candidate.
Even the race next year who could.
Well if you had a candidate who had the appeal the Ross Perot had in the spring of 1992.
Someone from the private sector who was running a senator slightly center right campaign.
They should take the country and with a good vice president look.
They -- looks like they're gonna call on the California ballot they're going to provide the platform.
The -- of people would be able to -- to -- have ballot access.
Question is there's a huge vacuum in the country who stepped into it and I think the odds today are better than they wore a week ago a week -- and -- keep getting better every not.
The reason I agree here is if if the odds are today.
More that Romney will be the Republican nominee.
And I think they are a little -- -- today Romney is and dispassionate.
Republican nominee with his huge block on his right.
That doesn't really love him.
Yeah they'll -- form against Obama but if -- third candidate.
Was just write a a better saner version of Perot that guy can get those votes.
Donald Trump's appeal.
Two blue collar Democrats so that this whole thing on the keystone for instance there's this issue the -- I guarantee you.
In this new bill we should talk about this.
If he has to decide keystone.
They're going to kill keystone -- you pipeline environmental laughed because they cannot afford.
There will go right to workers all -- are not willing to write I feel like you're playing -- or -- that is the Republicans push to add to force Obama to least make a decision on keystone.
As part of the -- -- -- studies keystone is a shipping the Canadians offered us a deal.
-- from the tar sands they're oil -- to allow us to take it down to the gulf -- refineries.
It is a huge.
Boost for us -- from Middle East oil.
It produces 20000 jobs immediately three or 400000.
Long term and by the way the Canadians are turning to say what you don't want it.
-- it was suppose it's already had three years a study.
There's some changes they need to do in the pipeline -- the Nebraska.
But this administration caught between blue collar union tour for.
The end of the and gentry lead environmentalists.
But I decided putt until after the election they're forced him to make a decision this decision will cost Obama one way I don't.
And -- the other thing that's going on before -- go to the Chinese probably Friday okay ascendant China if you don't want to look at that China Chinese water.
I -- it's amazing I that we don't have much time before you predictions very quickly.
The payroll tax unemployment extend an insurance extension.
Being debated right now in the house -- pass something in the senate.
Does this not make.
At that reinforce the opinion that Washington is completely out to lunch.
And also feed into this third party option to exactly who we had to deal the other night for two months we have no deal.
People get something for the end.
With this notion of patchwork this in political class it's just making people more happy right okay.
We're very quickly you know on do you think they'll be a third party candidate.
Stephen Mac notices yes -- it won't hurt Obama not the GO they know it could that you couldn't get a left Canada right now predictions.
