Although it seems the White House is doing some head counting after not a great week up on Capitol Hill.
There's really strike -- focus on the Republican senators privately -- went before they swear to -- rights and they I would -- their mood was.
They would like of like for her to be able to make her case successfully enough that they could say look I don't approve what she did.
On Sunday after the September 11 attacks but you know you've got in the benefit of the doubt you get to the president he should have his own personal sectors -- I think she was so.

I never thought he reporter for I think that he has been very protective of her through this whole episode and said that she's being unfairly -- -- But I think that John Kerry has been the leading candidate all along and I think that what we've seen from the senate people like Susan Collins a Republican from Maine his.
That she thinks that's John Kerry be a pretty good idea although -- -- people some of -- are sitting at this table who think that John Kerry has.
His negatives as well but I think John Kerry is the leading candidate and if you -- the other big ticket item here is.

UN Palestinian vote significance.
There's a great iron in to vote happen on precisely and deliberately on the day on which in 1947.
The general assembly voted to divide British Palestine into two states.
A Jewish state and an Arab state.
The Jews accepted -- the Arabs rejected because they couldn't countenance the existence of a Jewish state and they made war and it made war five times.
Had the Arabs accepted that resolution.
Sixty of five years ago we would now have a Palestinian state.
It doesn't exist but was created with the UN and this week was a fictional state in the useless body the UN general assembly.
I don't think it's gonna help Palestinians at all.
