Seen some of it but did the Democrat national committee is having to go through the process of course are looking at everything after. The election is parties do worthy winner illusion go back and you kind of a post mortem and try and figure what went right what more wrong and clearly on the Republican side and I think some folks are wondering not necessarily what went right but how did this happen what's Don trump gonna dude you are. Party the Tea Party can help give him over the goal line him. What the Democrats and independents crossed over the Democrats on the other hand her. Trying to figure out what went wrong and where Hillary came apart and other than a little dishonesty and there's I've always said it's tough for political parties to win a third term in the White House has only happened. Once and that was after Ronald Reagan and been president for eight years and daddy George Bush. Carried today. One another term but. One of the things the Democrats or haven't you right now nationally. He is. Pick a new chairman of their party the Democrat national committee in May have been. Struggling mean some of you will remember we talked about a couple weeks ago him. Former DNC chair Howard Dean of former presidential candidate he's got a bunch talk shows frequently. Me he had entered the race and now he's gotten out there's a congressman from the state of Minnesota that appears to be the frontrunner Keith Ellison he is congress' first Muslim. When he took oath of office he didn't put his hand on the Bible he put his hand on the Korean. Him. A lot of Democrat. Operatives are saying we don't need somebody hears an elected official Debbie Wasserman Schultz. If you may or may not remember has been the Democrat party chairman she had to resign during the Democrat convention after some. Exposure by WikiLeaks and so on now about her mean in the camp for Hillary Clinton and madam. And they race to be some point did it take somebody you can devote a 110%. Of his or her time to them. Position and not be a congressman. You gotta run around the country raise money you gotta run around the country be the face of the content of the party on. Talk shows on television on. All kinds of fronts and it is a full time job you've had here a bad ten days ago via a Obama labor secretary Tom Perez is a Hispanic obviously. He's jumped in the race we've got. The New Hampshire Democrat party chairman. Running the South Carolina party chairman running and the executive director of the Idaho. Party. Writing is well. Interesting development this last week the so you'll know what may rally is the national association. For the repeal of I'm abortion. May or else what it goes by the president of that organization was thinking about Ron and she dropped out but. That leaves are right now and it's not going to be decided until. Late February and they have got a Muslim. Liberal who is a Bernie Sanders supporter. As the front runner he's been endorsed by Nancy Pelosi he's been endorsed by Chuck Schumer who's to new head of the senate. Democrats replacing Harry Reid. The end. You are gonna have. You know a very visible nationwide. Confrontation. Over what the direction of the Democrat party's going to be so. We'll see what happens there are there's going to be two forms in January 2 forms in February before they decide light. February interestingly Joseph Biden the vice president said this week that. And the party needs somebody. Who. Can appeal to the Bernie Sanders side and who's going to not have a problematic. Nature. As the face of the Democratic Party a lot of folks were you wondering. What that. Means he was asked to give some some names and he ticked off five people and none of them. Were Bernie Sanders or. Types but yet says that we need to appeal to that base and that's the exciting thing that is one of the takeaways from this year where the year. They Bernie Sanders supporter on the the left that got energized and was brought back to the election process this year more than your Donald Trump person on the right and are sick and tired of being sick and tired he wanted a change in direction. And things are going to be different in the future that's clearly the case where the Europe. Trump Republican. Leaning. Politico or you're a Hillary. Bernie Sanders Democrat.
