At a Time Warner Center in Charlotte they can squeeze at least 1000 attendees in this -- not the 74 downs and I think.
They -- in the stadium next door but that's not to be.
20000 in -- year different venues so it could be cozy.
Out of -- He's among those organizing mission -- of this poor gentleman has not had any sleep -- I'm quite certain governors he sits down and talk -- -- very good at constant -- that I always you know.
Wagoner began -- -- on for Bill Clinton's an ideal -- filled assessment.
-- knock -- out of whole at a park no doubt Bill Clinton always does.
Bill Clinton loves this he does does any time you know there are a lot of Democrats.
Who might look at him you know congress and say hey I remember that kind.
He he he was better than this guy.
When it -- could that hurt.
And then -- could hear him say and this is a guy we need to continue with the kinds of things that I did I don't think there's any.
Space between what Bill Clinton's gonna say they -- -- Obama wants to do and so it's going to be very helpful if there is a great memory Bill Clinton.
Because the ninety's were a time when we were just going gangbusters with jobs so.
He's got a message and and Bill Clinton just knows how to deliver a speech and really get excited inspire so I think people really -- importance.
-- after yesterday.
-- well Michelle Obama knocked it out of -- ready you know -- your caddie through I wonder raised this with -- somewhere saying hang.
Did she went up Hillary Clinton and run for president.
You know Michelle Obama.
And I don't think he's just -- Commander in chief at the home she could easily be a commander in chief if you want to tune in as the head out of the speech again way to use thousands tens or not she articulate them brilliantly just -- -- Bill -- used to say.
You know well my best to put him upright my wife you're right you know what stands out of congress and today has -- -- your thoughts.
Not a word mentioned about the -- No -- that we -- sixty trillion.
Speakers that -- didn't even have to.
Oh I think everyone is talking about how you move the country forward so you can get rid of the deficit they've never said debt.
Well I think we've we've talked about it quite a bit -- that they know they had a -- is right up here.
You -- -- he's admitted to do it and you're right.
But it's almost like it's the issue that -- not be mentioned.
No no no I I think give back what's it what's most on the minds of the American people -- if you get jobs going if you get people working.
You start to get rid of the debt the biggest deficit we face today in this country.
Is it jobs deficit and so absolutely we got to get our fiscal house in order the best way to get your fiscal house in order to give folks back working again.
Do you think -- in retrospect there's a lot of delegates are telling me this that.
Even though they supported health care thing -- said that it took the president's side off the jobs called.
He did get a lot more successful getting -- jobs and to -- I've learned a lot lower right now and he'd be coming from a position of strength to get.
Health care and that he kinda did it backwards and that's why is in the -- -- I I would disagree first he started January 2009.
Taking the keys from George Bush to the White House that months.
300 Americans lost their jobs in one month.
And it goes right up by the -- and Jordan -- gonna keep coming up I mean maybe to move onto another audience Betty film like I could say in January 2009.
Eight -- 2000 -- lost -- job did not mention George Bush you're right I could do that.
But -- put a lot of people are on this subject they do recognize the mess that this president got what he came on board but that he mentions it a bit too much still has trouble.
Acknowledging mistakes and he -- made outside of how he is.
Told this story and and and and and sold the argument for what he's been doing that we'll let -- So to go back to the the question.
So he takes on an economy that's in a nosedive.
He's got their first things first concentrate on getting folks back to work so that's the first thing he does and he creates an economic recovery package that starts to do exactly that.
Then he says.
Americans have -- it.
Health care that they can afford and so we could get on.
Never never forgetting that we still had a conceded -- job creation he's not he's not made mistakes he doesn't amount to save -- -- instead I think he would have made I want that he's meant.
We should he should -- a little harder for immigration reform.
This first two years when.
Congressman thank you very much and -- but he gets into these days pregnancy and always succeed all right out of the senate the Democrats like state of California will have more.
From Charlotte right.
