It might president and state democratic -- -- -- -- lighter side but it's of the water is all right Brooke it is I -- fifty -- over go right to be distressed when he -- over. If your notions of the residents of the 180. Right right and we're all -- all people who he's really communicated your own. It's your book political ploy after president Reagan's it division the second -- But I think you know seriously -- -- -- -- all ball and I -- TV the political. Really substantive case.
