And the Obama is over Bill Clinton's role in the convention.
Barack and Michelle Obama did not want to get from the platform of Wednesday night nominating speech because they remember.

Plump for Clinton and these two guys.
The obamas and the clintons are the Hatfield and mccoys of the Democratic Party yet the secretary of state is.
And it does have a suggestion here back to the future.
Reaching back to Bill Clinton.
Setting up the possibility.
More than that.
Of a Hillary Clinton are in 2016.
Do you have any idea what was.
Asking what was given beyond the nominating speech.
A for mr.
Clinton's salvation services if we can -- I've been told by these sources that they have gotten.
Winks and nods but nothing more from the Obama is that if Hillary runs in 2016.
She'll have Obama -- -- I don't think they've got many more than that right now but I do know something else.

But in Israel I think he did something terribly important.
Two American Jewish voters there's nothing more important than number one.
Israel's continued existence that the state and that's being threatened by Iran.
And number two Jerusalem.
Which is the heart and soul of Judaism and -- -- The biblical history.
And these two issues are so important -- of the Judeo Christian absolutely.
And I think he made tremendous strides among Jewish voters.
By coming out strongly in favor of those two issues are you know there are those who are so skeptical of the Jewish voting -- if you will.

For governor Romney.
How large of a change in support do you think this -- percent I think -- represents something quite significant in the Florida.
In Ohio and Pennsylvania.
We've seen it Barack Obama go from 78%.
Down to the low sixties.
I think Romney can make some very significant inroads this -- -- in my view among Jewish American voters.
