Can get elected president.
You know if this is a discussion about.
Jobs and it's about economic expansions you don't entertain some of those views that you -- -- yeah electable I think -- I think a lot of what we're talking about here is part of the political side -- I'm going to respond.
Two questions -- based upon reality.
But I'm here to tell you that the American people would have looked in well job of our nominate -- not an economic -- -- but it there nominated are you saying as a warning to Republicans.
