But that's all we care about we are one day away from finding out just who will lead this country for the next four years despite all the issues at stake.
We've got somebody who says the -- depends on one factor.
Leo Hendry is managing partner Intermedia partners and he joins us now we have such a pleasure it's now as always come on -- It did this was -- -- -- -- to come on to because it -- tomorrow so momentous what let let me just ask you something about that that -- in your personal life because you worked for many years John Malone with the -- -- -- in the world I don't think anybody.
John is basically to the right of the political spectrum you were basically to the left attract you guys got a long built several enterprises wonderfully.
Build value its rhetoric that's what people want to see in the nation as a whole and and the question is they -- -- governor Romney who when he was governor of a liberal democratic state.
Generally knock heads together got something done and then they look back and -- four years of President Obama and don't -- much bipartisan.
So based on that shouldn't we expect there to be more the bipartisanship that you love under governor Romney rather the President Obama.
You know cents just in the three and a half years that the President Obama has been with us -- 264.
Filibuster threats in the senate alone by the Republicans.
And when John tonight David Wood work together -- we never talked about a woman's right to choose we never talked about guns.
We never talked about issues that are a gay marriage and been -- years ago when we introduce -- social issues into the body politic.
And made them litmus tests.
And coupled that with this this sort of tension between the progressives on the one hand who believe the government has a proper role in the conservatives.
Who frankly do not.
That's too much Bert Bert baggage at the federal level at the state level.
We're none of those issues really come into play you can look back consider governor Romney.
Had certain successes in Massachusetts.
Governor Christie I think is doing a very nice job in New Jersey.
But again the state this statement metric is so much better.
It'd tomorrow's -- -- as I said there's it's it's going to be pretty special and and we started off with twelve swing states where we've ended up tonight was seven.
And I said to what are your colleagues one of the reasons I wanted to come on is because the two of you -- early on try to figure out what swing meant.
It doesn't just mean these voters just go back and forth.
It means that there's something unique about these seven states.
She wants twelve now seven.
And it's their economies that have been -- these these are states typically David.
That are more balanced economically so they have a more traditional ebb and a flow take it and Ohio which is sort -- ground zero.
Ground zero it in in 2004.
The economy in Ohio where it was not very bad.
John Kerry ran a very able race and lost by a few hundred few thousand votes to.
Bush in 2008 I'm not sure one of the three of us -- -- one against John McCain.
Because the economy was really in a -- Well -- saying that the one issue still it's the economy stupid you know it it what what's amazing -- -- once somebody becomes president they have to make.
Thousands of decisions threat over the four years.
But voters tend to hold on to certain single idea -- of whether it's abortion or whether it is the economy or whether it is something like the Buffett tax.
What one issue do you think really grabs that the psyche vis the weapons and.
-- went on her when you've committed yourself to the Electoral College which is winner takes all.
-- you when you wish you had to -- yourself down to one or two issues that most.
The one that's always there but that rarely.
-- but is a momentous decision is times of war people come together in times of war and put other things aside absent that.
You again Ohio.
Virginia North Carolina Michigan Pennsylvania Indiana Iowa.
All of those states are having a better recovery from the recession.
And then is their their counterpart in general throughout the United States have if you believe what I'm suggesting is is if it if it's true and I'm suggesting.
Then it's probable that that you're gonna have -- President Obama.
Win the swing states tomorrow because recovery unemployment David in Ohio seven point 1% seven point 9% nationally.
And and North Carolina said -- despite the banking tragedies has had a resurgence Michigan because of the auto bailout.
Also because of the auto bailout.
So I think it when it does it it does come down there is 21 issue or two.
In an Electoral College format by the way Hamilton counting Campbell the most important -- -- all of is that if it's so low so as if as goes Ohio so goes the nation.
Hamilton County is even more that's well it it can have those of us who study Ohio which and I've been a lot of time in in Ohio.
Hamilton County by its demographic.
Should be largely democratic.
It's it's it's it's it's over weighted to people of color.
It's it's more of a blue collar.
State -- -- couldn't roller bearings but it was 20042004.
The economy in.
Hamilton County wasn't so bad.
That we saw George W wind you know wait again I think the three of us would -- -- McCain and Hamilton County.
