Found to have political -- author political mentioned look you won now what.
Discuss last night's well it was it was them -- the eighties.
It was ideal Super Duper Tuesday there were twelve states voting and it was ladies night I mean there was.
Big winners in Arkansas in the -- in California and in almost in South Carolina.
Others are there's a runoff in South Carolina the women won the majority of the big races yesterday.
Separate that's anything to you -- that -- despite having any candidate.
This probably is probably.
Something like that although you know UK you could spin this and an anti incumbent year in which you have very you know small percentage of women holding office.
That if voters are looking for something new he might as well try women because the men are strewn about his fifth.
The theory you know and none Whitman in California for.
-- the women of business backgrounds to women who is sort of self made women if you will what does that say about that stayed -- maybe politics in this country in general.
Well I think what it says mostly is that you can still spend an awful lot of your own money and -- -- -- -- -- Meg Whitman spent nearly eighty dollars for every vote -- gotten so -- -- as an extraordinary amount of money in and Carly Fiorina.
The -- try and -- them back on that won't date for the fall elections and in it and try and focus on hey it's not just about buying a -- it's about the best candidate -- a strike in more often and -- this to strategy fails though you can look -- New York City for Michael Bloomberg who's bought three elections in a -- or you know you look in New Jersey Jon Corzine was successful.
In both the senate and and in his first governor's race.
And so you know perhaps second -- although that's you know.
That is the one thing that will happen in the fall campaign is that that will be held against them.
But it's quiet that's.
It's expensive went -- and it's not even the real one yeah -- very efficient -- I do you think I mean not make women's got to go out against your branches of its reckless -- million dollars most of that they say out of pocket.
Can can -- -- afford to spend and other eating in and is it worth it at the end of the day.
Probably worth -- -- -- she's going to be governor -- -- be very interest rate is probably one of the more interest in races because you've got Jerry Brown who was governor.
-- a generation ago for two terms he's he's a very interest in politician.
He has run the exact opposite campaign he has not been on television at all he's -- all his resources back he's been raising a lot of money but he realizes.
He's gonna go against Meg Whitman and he's got to save his resources until until when -- matter.
What does this platform all about because -- interest -- as you mention he has been governor before to completely different generation California was a completely different state when he was governor now.
Yes some of the same issues of the immigration and things like that but he's got this fiscal issue that -- hanging over his head will he cut spending will he be able to make the necessary cuts.
Well I think -- can anyone govern California is probably the bigger question you know Arnold Schwarzenegger is there of the most unpopular governor in the nation right now.
Mainly -- the fact that this is you know a very large economy in and of itself.
And it's just cratered in the last few years and that's -- the question is can you have a system in which this.
You -- you have to vote on taxes so often in California and can you really allow those.
Decisions up to the people all the time to allow the governor -- governments actually function and it's a very it's a very tough call.
-- and I think he sits up and that's pretty key.
The governor tutored as -- creator as well because he came in and they all do right that coming gangbusters.
And he came in any any -- -- along the way just eventually I think users' hands of parents whatever you want.
And we see it Governor Christie new -- coming gangbusters we talked earlier to Rick Lazio is -- New York State.
They are like full steam ahead and it's a matter of keeping that momentum and when -- and house that's that's -- thing.
What the tough thing when it's all bad choices once you got there yeah.
You know it's on at this point particularly given the economic situations the states it's -- cutting cutting spending programs that are popular or raising taxes which is never popular.
The situation Nevada Sharon angles Tea Party here.
She wins the Republican side she's gonna go up against Harry Reid.
And I think the Democrats probably feel like she's the most beatable all the other candidates in this isn't the only -- -- we have the situation we have some infamous all right.
Winning the primary and then maybe the people on the left say well we'll get the middle vote and we'll win.
-- senator Reid is probably the lucky -- politician in America today after that win if you look back in just a few weeks ago when Rand Paul.
No surprise one that -- sake you know the very far very far right position and spent days days trying to explain himself and his positions Sharon angle in Nevada.
Makes him look like a moderate she is she is she is very much out of the mainstream so read got a -- big victory yesterday.
He just about blanch Lincoln's win and what that means I mean because.
That could also mean a vote for financial and -- on Wall Street as well.
Well that's what everybody it was very -- heading into yesterday's primary you had both the labor unions supported bill halter who was her challenger.
And -- -- probably most Wall Street banks supporting bill halter because.
Did they realize that the only reason this derivatives proposal still in the Wall Street reform legislation is because she was up four reelection while.
She's not only is -- up for reelection she's the democratic nominee now.
She goes into a very tough race but it's going to be very hard for senators who.
Would like her to win or any of the Democrats to drop that provision right now so it's probably not a good day for banks although you never know with legislation.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- So John Boozman that's the GOP that's who she's going to get going against.
-- where is the middle stand in that state because you had.
Labor unions going against -- they're obviously not going to support her November I wouldn't think they would support -- they may not vote Republican but they won't support her.
Is a vote.
If they do supporter does the middle and go away from her because -- voting anti union you know a lot of different things in play there.
There are a lot of different things in play and it was a very -- her winning was a big surprise last night because.
Usually in -- runoff situations incumbents did not fare well -- incumbents are forced into a runoff they don't -- -- this kind of -- -- cut against the grain.
It went differently and one of the big factors in Arkansas.
Might have been Bill Clinton.
Who came in -- still very popular in his home state who came in and campaigned vigorously for Blanche Lincoln.
And he might have made the difference is so when you look towards the general election he will be an even tougher fight for senator Lincoln.
But will Bill Clinton play a factor -- that is as well.
And we got to wrap -- quickly Carly Fiorina.
Can she can she go all the way -- this can she beat -- Barbara Boxer.
Well I think Democrats also won their favored candidate in that race because she was running against Tom Campbell who is a much more moderate.
-- much more moderate Republican would appeal to the mainstream in order for her to.
Do as well as she did in the primary yesterday she ran very far to the right on issues like climate change and immigration and and things like that.
Taken real quick few seconds are more people to vote this fall than we've seen in a long time community in your opinion on what people that come to the polls.
When you look at the enthusiasm gap right now -- -- more Republicans probably will be -- this fall.
It's really remains to be seen if more Democrats will vote -- in a normal mid term cycle.
The Democrats realize that there they're big hope.
In preventing a possible Republican takeover of the house and senate is to actually get.
Their supporters out there get those first time voters who came out to vote for Barack Obama in 2008.
And if they can succeed in doing that then all bets -- off but we still one Leo many months before the election.
That's going to be tough though because many of those voters like him -- are now very disheartened absolutely.
Thanks stating it thank you surprised they -- founder of political -- author political management -- you won.
Now what im gonna have him back.
Next fall or maybe even before next fall to -- -- --
