Going to the future.
Exist will the president be able to reach across the -- will he want to reach across the file is eating his character to reach across the aisle and compromise.
Is he gonna do that what kind of man is President Obama joining is now is a man who knows.
Ed Clark all -- all of the amateur.
As a you know him well you've written extensively about the man's character and his personality so let me asking the question.
If you -- kind of -- who reaches across the and compromises at this moment.
I don't think so I think we have.
A personality or character temperament.
For that kind of give and take you can imagine Barack Obama doing what.
President Reagan didn't picking up the phone in the evening calling Tip O'Neill in Barack Obama's case calling.
John Boehner think -- over to the White House and have a drink with me and will work things that could be it's not in his character that he not be magnanimous in victory he -- a second time he's the fellow who is driven by almost a megalomaniac.
View of his role in history.
Which is that he is gonna come into our lives and transform this country into something other than what it has been.
So that brings up the second reason I don't think he will.
Reach across the -- First -- temperament and character the others ideology.
His ideology is the far left.
And for all his so called -- nonpartisanship.
This the guy who.
With his wife Michelle Obama with his senior advisor Valerie Jarrett has pushed a far left agenda and will continue to do so.
I'm glad I don't think he needs to the to do it doesn't need to compromise he's got the political clown he's an article about all authority of the central controls the house and by the way he might have lost the popular vote.
So even note that the sit back to British point though we won the it was fifty to 48 popular vote he want.
While we still have Florida okay it's about the 5048 popular vote yet if -- what do you -- -- very very close to what I mean it's not overwhelming mandate to go out there and do whatever you want and a house but the point I was gonna ask you is -- -- you talked about his legacy.
-- his -- more important as a president or more important as a hero to the left in other words.
If he becomes a lame duck president early on because we go over the fiscal cliff.
Does -- say I'm still a hero to my core or does he care more about being a hero with respect to other presidents and.
And it's -- I see him.
Like Woodrow Wilson.
In his second term.
Woodrow Wilson went out and stopped the country for beleaguered nations I think Barack Obama is gonna go -- and -- the country.
For his agenda.
I think he's gonna have as much look as Woodrow Wilson did.
Which was zero -- is a hero to the left he pursue a note that I dispel worries -- out of waters great president.
I think given his character yeah I think so.
All of our -- -- -- -- very -- what you're saying and that reading through the lines -- -- saying that means taxes are going up.
Across the board the going up.
The debt will go up and he spending is cut it will be -- promise of spending cuts at the very end of the -- or after his term is over.
I think we're gonna see a very contentious.
I think one of the words that it was not used in the newspapers this morning.
Talking about the election -- -- -- the I think -- god he's gonna rear its ugly head I think during the confirmation hearings the new secretary of state.
That person will be asked by.
The house and but I'm sorry by the senate will you make the inter office memoranda available to us will you give us complete access to all the State Department documents.
I can see this going on for months very contentious stuff at -- -- a lot of talk about -- off thanks very much appreciated being with -- Colorado.
