Your memory of that.
There reversals in the media right Bill Clinton getting embarrassing long awaited speech on behalf of 1980 nominee Michael Dukakis it was so long.
He won a thunderous ovation when he simply kind of said they clothing and the rest is history governor Michael Dukakis joins us right now the 1988 nominee.
-- and I was telling the governor's during the break I think he started the Clinton -- without giving Bill Clinton the opportunity.
I thought it was a little over retrospect governor was sort of like opportunity John Kerry gave to Barack Obama.
And launched -- they.
I hope you know Clinton was one of the best governs the country that time and all of us who were governors Republicans most Democrats.
Why did you value Simpson to be because.
I knew him I like them.
And it wasn't his fault of the speech was so -- I mean we approved the camera as -- when I just got.
Now want to hear -- and things done but he kids around about that he does he does I'm.
A lot of folks say governor twenty years later it's closing that with Hillary Clinton's speech tonight.
It's over the Clinton Eric is over.
No I don't believe.
Me she's going to be in the Senate and hope for the democratic president opponents talked about presidential timber.
In what sense.
Running for president again.
Who knows who got a guy your Republicans that is 72 he's running for the presidency and well Reagan was what -- left all of that.
Your friend Dukakis going to be 75 November and you really cute -- out so you know war.
I sold to folks are just trying to stay healthy.
But and producer feeling here that at this convention in particular governor.
I'm not saying their persona non Grata but a lot of them and you sort of some some of their supporters the diehards who are saying they're not getting respect cannot be treated with respect.
And they're not happen.
When he may well I think that's a very very thin sliver.
Quote my life I had.
Harriet says 3000000 and eighteen million votes Wilson will jump to John McCain well I doubt that very much because the gulf between what Hillary Clinton believes what John McCain believes it's so huge that I don't think they care governor I think they so viscerally dislike Obama.
That this is they've gone beyond issues this is like when we -- Italian emotional you know at.
Look a lot of it depends on her and I think she's going to be very good not just tonight but she's going to go out that she's going to campaign hard especially in those states where she did well and I think it's going to be a very genuine kind of support for.
Obama but in the last analysis you've heard me say this before it's going to be of those precincts with the selections going to be one.
And you'd think that's were Obama's very strong but Democrats in general I don't know if they picked up steam since he warned about it.
Are not and but the the work is being done and all this is preliminary stuff.
Yeah but I think she's going to be find them in the future will be very supportive and I think dole -- work.
You mentioned bill the former president he was apparently took to -- governor that is speech tomorrow night can't be on the economy has to be a national security.
He's arguing look on the economic.
Turnaround artist site I hike taxes on the rich and there wasn't held a page forward Barack Obama largely the fact that we had the biggest boom in American history down and out and and Christian Republicans take benefits of it.
Yeah he is saying look this is my strengths and and then you're not letting me have my strength -- he -- -- I think you'll be talking about.
Just about everything by the time he -- because I've known for a whole -- is Bill Clinton you do what you wanted these are then he'll be fine yeah.
You don't governor the one thing fairly or not against it when -- campaign went down in the polls.
Is that the Republicans.
Maybe you learn as a die hard liberal and Americans weren't adjusted and diehard liberal and Republicans are are casting Barack Obama.
As a diehard liberals and it won't work and he's gonna fall apart and he was so.
So and he got -- points in the polls and how they got their.
If you from the studio and we do what's conservative about invading Iraq what's concerned about a half a trillion dollar deficit has been the most fiscally irresponsible administration history.
So I think we -- and talking to do about these kinds of things I don't know what this -- these labels mean only knows the economy's terrible shape because this huge deficit.
And I think Obama but that the people restricted so you kind of -- -- I'm not doing better and -- though because he's been the subject of the same kind of Republican attack campaign went after me but even the chairman of Republicans take on this doesn't seem to jell -- this is this the started.
Weeks and weeks ago but we know what's coming in its -- making -- known about the stuff.
Really this is -- Look what McCain did that would John McCain the guy who's going to run them.
High level campaign to -- does get himself a Karl Rove acolytes to run his campaign and were so it's not Obama -- edits -- I'm just saying that these attacks heard at the beginning and then down.
Once you get going and when I let this happen again governor to practice great seeing you -- the pleasure very gets any.
