Alan I don't know.
I spent hours over two weeks periods poring over all these things and then I went jogging one night.
And his name kept coming -- I said when I got to lose I'm sure I predict the right for the presence of foot and went with it.
-- -- and Paul Ryan was name in contention I really wasn't -- it wasn't even thought of as being running for president.

Romney was introducing someone and saying you know the next -- ex president -- -- I didn't know with this incident I swear to go by written this way before anybody was even -- that's not psychic what is it.
I think it's my unconscious in tuition because I kept studying.
For example I -- a dividend of psychic well everybody knows the -- the case of Obama.
I named Obama one year earlier in some interviews and reporters came back to me and said long before you.
Went into a formal prediction you named him.
-- -- his psychology behind this it was a very difficult time.
People were dissatisfied with both parties people in -- sense we're seeking unknowns and unknown kind of person.
And I -- and he wasn't known when I mean to nobody thought about him.
In the psychology -- was that's why I picked -- they wanted to by the way that can you see this Q personal person.
Don't anyone think -- who like picked or who I wanted in retrospect.

Right someone down there wasn't even on the list I showed I showed on the jury -- His name and it wasn't even there he was he was vice president later on I don't know Allen and and I I came to McCain I'm sorry I don't mean that I don't mean playing games I can give an inch you put 101000 down.
I have to make -- an -- and -- you must know how it is you do what you do let me we'll have a sense -- -- -- right and -- a vacation there in case of the democratic election.
I would have element what does it would have been gone is my judge.
-- 101000 dollars.
I'm sure that was going to be the now of course a lot of things happened in those last months but you know a lot of things can happen any time look at how.
And then look at how the president who's a brilliant speaker whatever wants to -- an -- extraordinary find communicators.
Look at how with one of the greatest.
In American history involving twenty children what have you -- he came two days later and spoke to the American public.
That was one of the highlights of communication I believe in his opinion and this is not endorsing other things -- what have you I'm a communicators and I have to say.
It was a -- communication because I can remember as a little boy in the second -- war.
When -- or went before the microphones and spoke he felt like he was speaking only to you and I halls remember.
When the most dramatic real moments in history of this country.
FDR had died he carry us through through fought through it at that through a world war and he was in his fourth term.
