To the -- loudly in park city Utah governor Romney's three day retreat -- out some top donors and some possible to not be contenders.
But who is it not it's doling it's getting a lot of attention Florida senator Marco Rubio.
New Jersey governor Chris Christina both of these guys skipping out on the retreat we're told.
Yeah things to do to Mike Huckabee on whether this is any reflects -- on the Romney campaign a bit and optics are.
You know people in the media -- is pounce on these things and much ado about nothing -- I think so honestly.
They're not gonna make a dissent read back -- -- we're doing a segment on it some okay got a significant -- them.
You -- right.
Well it doesn't mean that.
The people who are there are necessarily the top picks okay because this gonna be a very methodical thoughtful decision that the Romney people are making -- that I had to base it on.
One try out.
But there are a lot of other potential VP picks there sure so so but all know -- Sharon is gonna say boy well this was the week.
We were told rubio wasn't vetted you out and then you ran it back right you've -- -- -- governor Romney down at bats and he most certainly is being -- It is doesn't just -- this argument that may be to rubio at least there's on and on -- Now I don't think so at all Marco Rubio is still a superstar he still very much in I think the hunt and very much in you know on the top of the list.
But we knew that it for a vote but you -- you looked at birdman came right now.
No no absolutely not is your name kept coming up right well but and -- in the media not by the McCain people that's a point cut -- couldn't what is the process with that.
Every person doesn't -- little differently I talked to Dan Quayle yesterday in fact and -- some.
For example McCain was pretty visceral.
It was a sort of a sudden he -- Joseph Lieberman no one would give him Joseph Lieberman all the party chairman around the country.
Basically said will leave the convention and it was going to be absolute disaster.
And you know everybody who is a part of it who has talked about it indicated it was a very visceral decision he says you know we need a game changer in a picture apparently on but it's.
A lot of it.
You do -- to keep people happy that they might not seriously think you view.
As as a running mate but they want to keep doing their -- keep you happy that you were and in the small groups of ASU tax files and transfer.
Any information to provide and then you -- like well at least I was.
Answered yeah I think there's a part of that but I I can tell you some guys who would been better than previous.
Process is who I know personally and her friends.
Who give gave all of that they felt like they disclose everything including the size of the Sox they wore.
And then it they just woke up one day and found that somebody else was being named a not so much as sort of -- -- Consoling phone call.
And it what was that it does that and lose the lose all the ones -- or bypass.
They don't get sorry it's not yet again it depends in the can right now Dan Quayle for example said that there were conversations going on for several weeks before he was an ounce in New Orleans.
Nobody he was on I don't want to list and that's right he was on -- 188 -- 88 he was -- nobody saw it coming.
Others and for example nobody saw George H.
Bush being picked by Reagan and your -- there was a deal that -- board member asked Roger -- or residency -- -- -- of -- and bush supposedly was over you know nursing a beer at a bar across the street from the hotel when he got a call said -- Ronald Reagan would like to talk to about being BP.
So you never know on indigenous processes that.
I never got far enough Saturday that decisions and you're -- has come up as you know.
There's a you know off fifteen names that have come off on my name is and it's so I well the last 51 now so -- that -- -- in all seriousness that.
When does it -- -- there's -- that the governor is gonna do this.
Well before the convention.
Is that a good idea.
It could be I think again one thing I have confidence in the Romney team they're very disciplined very focused very businesslike systematic and methodical.
I think they'll look at this.
From both the timing at a person's standpoint and what helps them best position.
To win the election they're focused on November -- from markets crucial swing state.
Completed bill that it is -- has been on president he can't -- that's the problem.
All right -- -- -- mean -- you might governor.
Boys could see my friend what he got -- on the switch.
We have a special on millennial we're going to be talking to those very people who help propel Barack Obama for years ago.
Now these are the folks -- come out of college that big debts no jobs will talk to -- the other is still excited about Barack Obama interest aren't.
Our governor is still the former governor of -- -- vertigo as vice president or whatever officials that you have illustrated Harrison never works.
Are well if you.
