It's truly one for the history books -- joined by -- we're going off his historian and author of president's most wanted.
Who is a look back at the highs and lows of the past year good morning at spirit -- -- OK so let's start with one of the moments that I think everyone remembers number one on your list it has to be Reverend Wright.
Reverend Wright I mean did you know what was interesting there is that he -- The president elect Obama.
Thought it put him out of the way -- back at the National Press Club and gives a speech and faculty.
With friends like that with friends like this who needs enemies list because he really almost did and -- it was a miracle got to pass the runner up -- -- -- -- later by the -- which two weeks later did the exact same thing.
-- third runner up is Bill Clinton.
Are Hillary I mean I feel if bill is around Hillary might be the president elect right now.
Maybe meanwhile the number two let's lighten it up because.
The funniest SNL moment SS Saturday Night Live played such a role in this whole political season you say the funniest -- it was intended right to be funny was what.
Intended was when does Sarah -- went on there did a great -- what Amy -- which was hilarious the funniest unintended moment.
Was when Hillary mentioned in this debate against Obama in Ohio she cited as an -- proof that there was media bias against her but it's kind of scratching their head like but.
They're not the traditional media yeah exactly it's meant to be satirical -- -- interest.
Joe The Plumber is number three on the list -- a lot of people wondering what the what was gonna happen to him after the election I think a lot of people are wondering that now but he's number three on -- silly color your fifteen minutes are -- award -- go away which we went bizarre is that after the election he kind of trashed McCain it's that I was ashamed to be on -- -- -- sort of stage with -- which was kind of odd moment but.
Again -- up on that one Bill Clinton.
Yeah I light runners up yeah definitely time to exit the stage -- I'd ever for.
As an award that you get for the best use of styrofoam Greek -- -- the -- -- -- wonder -- that there's probably -- that -- Invesco Field what was interesting though he gets the best that we use some of the joke about the styrofoam Greek columns.
-- Al Smith dinner where he made fun of it and kind of showed a little bit of humor -- sort of poke fun at himself like Hagan is a little over the top of that.
-- from Greek columns so that was the winner the best use we had number four was the best use of styrofoam Greek columns and in the best joke.
Obviously do we have that didn't happen saying the joke.
Because it was pretty fun that Al Smith dinner was -- little -- -- to.
What I'm used to.
I was originally told we'd be able to move this outdoors to Yankee Stadium.
-- can tell you what happened -- your Greek columns that I requested.
It went over people at their writers John McCain's writer and brought the -- requires that night she -- -- -- a job of -- brilliantly in the administration we -- if you -- one of those five what would you say it was at this best political moment of the year.
I would say the Reverend Wright Obama getting past -- I think that was the key to get -- for second -- winning election sort of put that that's the that was the only thing that could potentially derail them it happened in the primary but he got a pass them.
And from there on out there was really no way that was gonna -- it's frightening for gun and author of president's most wanted and historian.
