ER NC all week.
Bill good morning to you.
Morning to you back to New York.
-- -- give us your impressions it seems that Condoleezza Rice was compelling and fantastic.
Paul Ryan is well again your thoughts.
And Susanna Martinez they governor from New Mexico assemblage between both of them -- -- on the floor last night almost in the front well.
-- this stage in the -- I picked that spot for a reason every night because.
You concede -- crowd obviously but you can have a clear line on the speaker.
And you can also see the giant teleprompter that's across the -- And for Condoleezza Rice that teleprompter was blank.
She came out in if you notice the -- she spoke big BC talked in a way where she looked -- directly over the delegates.
But most of that speech was done off the top ever had memorization yeah she had notion of front of her but apparently dissident speech -- -- has given at least three or four times over the last few months.
But last night the way she delivered that with the always and that no prompter was very -- -- Is -- staying bill -- the teleprompter has become a character in this campaign process in you have itself.
And -- -- go on.
Yeah I would say yes on that I territory to itself but it's been that way for a long time especially conventions -- -- always use teleprompters just the way it's done in 2008.
In Saint Paul Rudy Giuliani was the keynote speaker.
The program was running very late.
And you could literally watch the teleprompter skip entire paragraph should Giuliani kept up with -- -- it was most impressive but to ask for Paul Ryan this is what I want to people at home to understand.
You know -- -- -- Paul Ryan indicated came out of Miami University Oxford Ohio whose risky probably went out to Colorado or travel between Colorado and Utah which -- Brothers and a station wagon.
Until -- blew that is indeed.
Person to go back home to Wisconsin and truly reconsider his life in his direction.
And his mom was scared to death which you raised just keep up their books when you saw what happened last night.
Absolutely all right fast forward to tonight we've seen all these pictures -- come back with Mitt Romney surrounded by his grandchildren obviously that's been one of the key criticisms.
Of the candidate is that he's not being approachable personable.
Enough are are we seeing a softening in age of Romney and and would you anticipate for this evening.
I think you will lay out his vision for how she would change.
The way Washington.
That was that was a clear line of attack on behalf of Paul Ryan last night -- -- -- campaign informed -- yesterday afternoon.
Is that if you want clues to admit there -- Mitt Romney will stay on Thursday night.
Listen to what Paul Ryan says on Wednesday not to that was the best teaser preview we got at a campaign.
And another thing I'm Paul -- -- he talks so lovingly about his mother.
And when he talked about the debt that this father when he was younger man Paul Ryan found this -- dividend -- don't house.
When he was sixteen years old.
-- -- The tears in the eyes women.
And that Wisconsin delegation is something that I have never witnessed in twelve years of covering conventions for Republicans and Democrats.
Including the Wisconsin governor Scott Walker streaming down the side it is based.
To that audience last night was caught up in rapture with Paul Ryan.
Cheney had them in the parliament his hands from the moment he walked out there to the moment he says goodnight to.
And and often times -- when you're in the arena.
These speeches play one way.
That when you go back to your hotel room and watch it on the TV monitor it -- entirely different.
Which is why your take is so captivating bill.
If you had to be at all critical of the evening's events where would you what would you comment time.
I don't know to criticism is something that are placed on the on the events last night I thought in terms of the -- that the Republican Party wanted to package.
Ought to update did a great job Paul Ryan took a lot of sips of water off the podium last night and I noticed during a replay that oftentimes the director cut away during that moment but also at 1101.
Remember the major broadcast networks.
They take that hour from 10 o'clock to 11 o'clock eastern time at 1101 Paul Ryan was still talking it was near the end but he wasn't quite there.
-- checked his watch others left wrist.
Interesting I've found that remarkable.

Absolutely well I envious -- all -- here -- so envious that.
You're there are on the scene and we look for -- -- continue reporting that's for sure thanks answer.
Got a great if you -- -- guess in every morning thank.
