Hi Tina may sound far off but it is time to start watching potential candidates now -- on the predictable but there might also be some surprises to my surprise to speak but back with our political panel -- -- surprises and sweet sixteen your thoughts.
We'll have 2013 on the mind right now a little bit and Chris Christie I I think is pretty clearly going to be in the in the top ranks of contenders and he got a 70% approval rating right now in New Jersey.
The national numbers are quite a bit different particularly after -- -- embrace of President Obama but.
That idea of politics being local and building that authority he's able to win reelection in New Jersey I think he goes in with a head of steam -- -- In two the next presidential cycle.
And then it it -- a lot of folks on the democratic side are looking to the governor's there's actually one senator that I'm keeping an eye on particularly as these fiscal negotiations go on and that's Mark Warner senator from Virginia he bowed out of a possibility of running for governor of Virginia -- -- and office they have in the past.
And I think his profile coming from the business sector may be the possible leader on the fiscal cliff talks right now I think -- him pretty well positioned someone to keep.
Eye on these next couple months and years -- I'm gonna pick two women senator Kirsten Gillibrand from New York has said she's -- for Hillary Clinton and and and twice -- but if Hillary Clinton doesn't run.
Watched Gillibrand she's got all she's come off election which got 70% of the vote and she has -- kind of aspirations.
On the Republican side.
Nikki Haley from South Carolina.
Four years old.
And I think the Republicans need a new face and this would be a change of direction.
And she's passionately is respected by the right.
I ever wrote down a list of thirteen Republican names and then by the way when senator soon was walking out I said would you like me to add your name -- the Swiss syndicate that.
They said no -- one other thing I guess if you pull out of that one.
I think Scott Walker actually Scott Walker governor Wisconsin.
Is that guy who actually did what a lot of Republicans want to do which is he took it took on the entrenched interest.
Behind -- spending that's killing a lot of states and is hurting our own federal deficit.
So I think Scott Walker somebody if you -- it can say look I have really done this and it was not easy and I succeeded.
As far as Democrats are concerned is really -- far less wide open race I think -- -- with Republicans simply because you of this.
Hillary Clinton decision out there whether she does or whether she doesn't.
If she does and I think.
You might have some Democrats saying you know we won with a senator the last time but that's really really unusual governors are good.
And Martin O'Malley of -- and Brian Schweitzer of Montana are two possibilities.
I think that -- -- -- -- -- much adding governor O'Malley big choice.
Obviously someone people who have their eyes on.
But also Cory Booker a mayor from that in the democratic side from -- on Newark, New Jersey I think that that -- -- a lot of Cory Booker and on the Republican side a woman.
Susanna Martinez from the state of New Mexico.
I think she's someone to keep our I am because I think she's -- her speech at the Republican National Convention was one at Loudon everybody told.
Reasonable size which makes it fun I think a lot of flak for that guy Joseph Biden has until I SAI think if he -- that he -- -- a slap in particular isn't.
Gosh you know if she was she would be.
The same -- as Ronald Reagan when he was when he became president -- a couple of months younger.
It's entirely possible -- -- if she can reassess how tired she looks now she's -- -- to take naps -- rest him rest that I got some it's evident the other Joseph Biden would be 74 years on on inauguration day by far the olestra.
Panel thank you.
