-- there's still willing to take except there with open arms -- she does get him.
You know I think it's awfully late I really do she could've been a major candidate -- she jumped in in the spring or even.
Up to mid summer but.
It really is getting late and you and Carl we're talking about all the debates.

Other candidates are tied with Obama or leaving or Obama Romney.
