You know you've you've been at this game and you did something pretty remarkable Mike Huckabee that has not been seen and if you look at John McCain -- well in terms of dollars and cents.
And -- these campaigns they've been a major deficit when you compare them to the democratic side.
But -- all total if you look at the three candidates who were standing here just a couple of days ago.
They've raised north the 500 million dollars.
And they now look to raise the funds as they go into November and we know -- the presumptive nominees are.
Where do you factor in those funds and particularly as -- relates to selecting the ticket.
Well it'll take two to two issues here one.
First of all branding as we discussed earlier at Kennedy doesn't sit still a candidate is not something that you can basically yeah.
Defined and if you need to have given that surprising to me it is completed because -- personality there.
And the personality in the strength that personality was very much a part of this process.
For the first time I think Republicans will be outspent the mom has a tremendous fundraising apparatus McCain does not historically we've always had more money.
But I think -- -- proved is that if you get the free media and you know very clear message.
There's so much free television covering your campaign.
But you gotta stay very consistently doing that might get scattered all over the place that that that they'll get sort of offset -- -- -- win this for the -- someone else.
I think at the end what this is comes down to -- youth.
New a new a new mission.
-- stability someone who basically can walk in and argued that I can be commander in chief I've been there before I've just watched on television how bloody will it get.
Mostly very tough races me very short race interesting as long as this thing has been 27 week campaign and because really the start -- the first week equivalent.
Couldn't Republican mentioned this time -- late after Labor Day so it's a very short seven week very intense.
Republicans more motivated by stopping.
And the Democrats the Democrats obviously want to reverse the bush the bush years.
And I just -- -- ask -- this here we hear now on the Obama camp as of yesterday that he -- selected eighteen of three members.
To help pick the vice presidential candidate.
I -- Caroline Kennedy on the last I would imagine there's some tiny and there I know she's been a big supporter.
But when do they pick their VP candidates.
We get him anytime you can pick and an advance.
You know east always he waited till the -- he created this great suspense no one cares about -- -- anymore exit to show that's not necessary.
You need to be a great show if Hillary stayed into the -- and everybody watching it.
I I think in the next 63 weeks before the convention -- pick and I think depending on what Obama does that sort of forces McCain's hand to.
To pick someone who's younger more dynamic someone who has the government experience and states.
I thought the choice Jim Johnson who's the chairman has been around.
I ran a campaign against him he was Monday as chairman.
When I ran Reagan's -- -- varies does that sound.
-- -- Islam as a deputy attorney general in general.
You know Clinton I think I think Carolina's is is symbolic -- she endorsed early.
The Kennedy the Kennedy flame is is still very a -- alive among among Liberal Democrats.
But I think at the end of the day that they'll come to consensus choice.
All right guys I am -- -- breaking news I hate to wrap it up but --
