-- excited -- -- 2000 able down histories are very important political year that's fairly obvious but there -- -- blunder errors in the political arena.
Dries out from our New York City -- Dick Morris who has the top five and -- is big book fleeced.
Makes a good Christmas -- By now you've Hillary is in that top five twice nine -- we got some full disclosure.
You all I -- -- but we don't tell you what to say what to do here right do what you want you're an independent got.
Okay blunder number five middle -- out of the biggest water and -- number five is Hillary Clinton running for president.
On her experience.
Roll the tape.
It is going to take somebody with strength.
And proven experience to get the job done and I'm happy to put -- my experience up against a senator Obama's any day I hope people will choose to be Fermi based on my experience experience.
Does it just count for something experience counts for everything.
I obviously you the question is -- was that a -- well.
First -- she didn't happen I think he.
What he was a senator.
Yeah yeah I have the first few years.
She spent most of her time raising money for campaign -- the best selling book.
As First Lady -- -- experience with Health Care Reform and because she bet everything on experience she had to do things like plane.
She was dodging sniper fire in Bosnia.
She had to basically fabricate the experience but -- -- -- deeper blunder than that the Democratic Party doesn't value experience.
They want change that's why -- Democrats.
Are running on experience in the democratic primary is like running on -- Love -- and I finally and brag and say she was tying yourself by using a word experienced of the old guard in DC.
While most Democrats obviously -- -- chose Obama over her.
Wanted nothing to do with the old guard all experience it wanted -- new guy and she was leaving yourself vulnerable to the bush Clinton.
Bush Clinton recitation and that was deadly for candidates you don't you know -- I gotta give it to that's a very good pick.
Very Smart all right picked number four.
Hillary spending all of her money.
Before Super Tuesday.
Hillary was going on the old model of getting the democratic nomination which what's been knocked out.
You'd win a big primary -- you'd knock your opponent out and that's how it it always been.
And she figured if I win a lot of the 26 primaries particularly California.
On Super Tuesday Obama will have to pull out.
But what she didn't realize is the reason candidates have always had to pull out.
Is because that money dried up when they lost those primaries they were willing to soldier on like McCain did but -- money -- drying up.
But Obama's money was from the Internet.
And Obama's people -- grassroots people who didn't much care he won or lost they just -- in it for the cause.
So Obama was able to re load very quickly people clicked.
And all of a sudden he had new money.
Hillary when she spent all of her money on Super Tuesday which broke and she was facing its twelve days.
Eleven primaries one right after the other.
And those eleven primary she couldn't compete and she had no money for -- Obama had all the money he needed because he had just -- the Internet.
And the result was that he not only won all eleven of the primaries in a row.
But he won them by two to 1321 in four -- -- and reignited his camp not just reignited developed a lead in delegates because it's proportional representation.
-- -- he also could never close the perception always that he was the you know the front runner that.
That's another good one Morris you know that's another good one that's two for two I'm real credit -- I don't commit.
The third biggest political blunder of 2008.
Is Barack Obama's response to Reverend Wright roll the tape.
Was like an uncle.
If you have it good to me you know you somebody who helped me find Christ I can no more disown him than I can disown my white grandmother.
Obviously whatever relationship I had with the Reverend Wright has change when I say I find these comments.
It contradicts everything.
OK and that obviously was a very troubling time for Barack Obama the worst time -- campaign.
But was it his fault what did he blunder -- -- when they first charges came out when the -- videos were run.
Talking about of Reverend Wright saying you know GD America and all that stuff.
Had Obama issued the repudiation.
At that moment that he then issued five weeks later.
Really excoriating right he would never have lost the Ohio and Pennsylvania.
And Texas and Indiana primary still would have been a -- for -- and he never would've had that lingering.
White working class backlash.
That gave Hillary a fair shot at the nomination.
OK but there are two things in play he didn't throw all right under the bus until Wright went out even after all of this press -- more nutty things in Philadelphia.
That and the second thing is he was worried about alienating.
African Americans by being cool.
To Reverend Wright.
-- he'd already won South Carolina.
And and he I believe had already won Florida at that point.
And he was facing the industrial states of the northeast.
And for those he needed to throw Reverend Wright under the bus he always deserved to be under.
All right but again the timeline on it is -- same from the -- he -- -- -- -- soon as this stuff went out he should have thrown right under the bus -- I'm saying that he didn't want to do that for political reasons and and personally is that -- -- -- again.
And that was a blunder.
Because had he done it immediately.
Hillary would never had that -- second strengths are you don't think we will have -- -- -- there -- any of that would -- -- play now because people would have set of course you know is there.
With the blacks would have said he's got two in the whites would have said thank goodness he did.
Well -- back Mars we'll have -- to the top two biggest blunders of.
