Well being media did the pulled the equivalent of an all nighter.
And that is Iowa was such a squeaker that -- almost everybody was up all night.
And on some of the correspondents it really share and especially because I'm teammate that.
But it was -- it was an amazing me.
Tight race no one had predicted it.
But soon it was over as soon as that eight vote margin was determined almost in lock step the media moved from.
The -- diner.
In Iowa to the diner in New Hampshire and we are now totally focused like a laser beams on the upcoming struggle.
For not only the number two slot between.
And of course the new flavor gives -- -- Santorum and that the lead here.
Romney it any criticism for that hit -- I mean I mean it's -- expected -- -- and you race that is there any criticism yeah I I think you know we've all learned about.
Just about as much about Iowa and is anyone needed or ever wanted to know -- I mean demographics.
The importance of the race I think all of that was covered.
Who has anybody -- -- caught I think -- -- Telegraph if you will what some of the challenges will be for mainstream media -- New Hampshire because.
We've we've been criticized this morning I saw on this day are you guys just want a dog fight you -- it down -- the last -- people you just want.
In the media that's all -- really -- ball a lot.
Yes well enough that we probably do want to be interesting if that's -- accusing them and I seen it you wanna live chat and but the fact of the matter is this is how we choose the next president of the United States and also.
Harris when the dogs themselves.
Announced that they want to -- And -- that does not sit in -- -- the race.
The time I -- Gingrich's.
Ron asks how nasty could it -- because Newt Gingrich's stayed away from all that nastiness -- something the last 72 hours before the cockpits make it any call Romney a liar and it was on like dot com.
That's that -- Kind of suggested even before he openly called at the leading national leader at the moment of the moment a liar even before that he said that he was not gonna sit back and just.
And I certainly you had it up preview of what's going I -- I think with the media are now focused on is really interesting is this.
Ganging up the -- -- determination -- news to kind of work for Santorum to unseat Romney as the leader of the pack -- and because they all want that slot and they think it's going to help.
Each of -- In the number two slot become number one if they do it together Romney has the money Romney has the organization he has the firepower he has the lead.
I think that a lot of people were saying a lot of pundits were wrong.
Romney would not win and I away he did.
Albeit by eight votes but he did win so now a lot is riding on New Hampshire and to fund to stop them the Romney momentum such as it is they really don't.
Ron Allen film and that Ron Washington.
Anyway I did I that I love Rick Santorum is that the coverage in the -- Well you know he is now going to understand what it is to -- -- front runner and -- The -- -- the ugly race especially the bad and the ugly because that's what happens to front runners that's what we've seen with the other front runners to -- word you -- U might wanna give Herman -- and call me.
It can I say I don't know how they're Clinton in all seriousness having spent time with a man on this tour bus.
-- correspondent to do that and I only say that because there really was not -- much access to him on the tour in terms of that.
I really have 45 people working with them.
Herman Cain learned very -- very fast what happens when you're at the top people take shots at but let me ask you question Harris was did that happen because in fact -- -- build a broad asset of I asked about that you know -- don't you don't just need a buffer you need someone to say.
Tell me something that you wouldn't want your mother to now.
Have never let me go dig for it and prepare for that's called -- campaign leader right right you need that person and that's hot spot to be able to save you.
Even though you may think you're leading you meet somebody else to kind of be run -- the show to.
I don't know that he necessarily have that kind of structure when I saw him back in October now is things changed I was with them in December -- Maybe he gave that -- but that's something that Rick Santorum it's gonna happen to at least.
Well he's used for the rough and he's very used to the rough and tumble of politics I mean this Pennsylvania senator you're absolutely not everybody always said he could never win he couldn't do way that he was vulnerable and yet he always managed to kind of -- in -- fight the fight.
He's in the really tough fighter.
