8:33 pm
find a new speaker, one name pops up. paul ryan. one who many republicans believe is the only member of the house that can yuan out the party. >> i know that paul is a committee guys, he likes when the committees work, and is mentally committed to many things that we want. if he can convince us of that, we can deliver an overwhelming majority. >> many are pushing for him to enter, he says he is not interested because it requires too much travel, fundraising and less time with the family. >> reporter: ryan's name came to the top of the last after mccarthy dropped out, after failing to win over the 40-strong freedom caucus. >> if i can't unit everyone, is it better to find someone that can.
8:34 pm
>> it's not clear if the freedom caucus can live with him. >> he'll be a great messenger. we are not there yet. >> reporter: others are in the running. daniel webster from florida is a freedom caucus favourite and jason center utah is a front runner. for now, the election for speaker is on ice. john boehner holds the gavel, and it's all eyes on paul ryan to make the next move okay, let's gave into the topic bringing in david haller, a political consultant in miami, and al jazeera's political correspondent michael shure joining us from los angeles. first question to you. will paul ryan accept the request to throw his hand into the ring? >> i don't know whether he will or he won't. i think there's probably a lot of questions for him as to
8:35 pm
whether he can do what needs to be done, which is to unite the republican caucus, i'm not sure that's something anyone can do. i'm not sure he's their guy. i suspect there'll be someone coming out of the woodwork that is not talked about today as the ultimate republican speaker. >> let's get your take on it, michael shure, what are your sources telling you about whether ryan will or won't? >> one of my sources was paul ryan. i cornered him in d.c., about 10 days ago, before tyler macarthur dropped out of this. i said will there be a lyndon johnson like, if elected i will not serve sort of pronouncement. >> he said "i'm an honest guy", i don't want to job. i take him a that. a lot has transpired, and i agree with david. there play be someone. if ryan doesn't want the job.
8:36 pm
i think it will go to someone we are not talking about. i don't think it will go to daniel or jason. you may here greg walledon, the head of the national republican campaign mitt yes someone who is not a lightening rod. someone that willish ir the party into an attempt to be united. it's a big challenge. >> at first we heard paul ryan saying "i will not do it", a hard no. then we heard no comment. is it your sense that he is at least listening to speaker john boehner, listening to other top republicans calling on him to do it for the good of the party, i think he is listening to john boehner, because if you are a member of the caucus, you are listen to the speaker, he's a friend of the speaker, i think he is paying attention, and there's a clamoring, starting from the moment that john boehner said he was leaching.
8:37 pm
the first person that many went to is pauline. the field having changed. paul ryan has to pay attention, it's others. when those names are boning talked about you may attention. >> what does this mean for the republican party, will we see a more conservative house or are the republicans in disarray. >> awe may see both. i think the republicans are in disarray. you may see a more conservative house n only in the sense that if republicans lose seats, it's not conservative members that will lose the streets. >> it's the bob dold's of
8:38 pm
illinois that are on the bubble. those are the people that democrats would beat, moving the republican caucus to the right, like you are saying. >> let's switch to the democrats and the upcoming debate. bernie sanders appeared on meet "meet the press." >> from day one i opposed the keystone pipeline. if you are serious about climate change, you don't encourage the explo exploration of dirty oil. i voted against it. i think they have been app disaster for the american worker. so people will have to contrast mine assistant si and willingness to stand up to the big corporations with the secretary. >> there michael shure is referring to the fact that
8:39 pm
hillary clinton had supported the trans-pacific partnership and now is against it. she had supported not establishing a no-fly zone, and says now she wants one. how will the flip flops play out in the first debate. >> it's a smart politics, if a little disingenuous on bernie sanders. what you have in hillary clinton, is someone part of the obama administration. and there's a tacit, you have to agree with the president. if you don't grow, your voice will not be heard. it's the way it goes. that's why the vb is in the same pined. it's an opportunity to bernie sanders to say she got to this. but she was part of the administration, and couldn't go up against the president. you'll hear a lot of it in the coming weeks and couple of days.
8:40 pm
>> wait a minute. come on. it's not - it's not fair to say that he is disin genous. she fought for the iraq war in the united states senate. she was in the disagrees thee was a hawkish voice. >> i'll give you a point. she was a united states senator. that's a different matter. i was referring to keystone and t.p.p. keystone matter and so did t.p.p. i'm saying they are the types of things, when they are initial tips from the president's administration, that generally speaking they'll be supportive of. >> we take your point. before we leave, we have to get you to talk about mr o'mallee.
8:41 pm
martin o'mallee. what does he have to do to get some kind much traction, which he has not found. we'll give you the last word on that. >> he is in a difficult position, because he's trying to move to the left of bernie sanders. and when you try to get to the left of a socialist. there's not a lot of ground there. what he is going to be doing is doing the political equivalent of a bunch of hail maries, throwing to the end zone hoping someone catches on. >> what about web. james maloney is a candidate everyone is forgetting. web, at least had room. web would take himself out to the right wing of the democratic party. you can say you are a moderate
8:42 pm
to a moderately conservative voice and have clear issues. as you look forward to the debate. how do you think hillary clinton will approach it, will she be on the attack or make nice so no one accuses her of not being nice? >> i think they'll have to play off of what's. some will advise - david nose better, advising candidates to sell themselves. she'll sell herself. if she's attackeded, she'll have a defense. her mind is on the game. which is the benghazi hearing. >> her goal here, more than anything, is don't make a mistake. don't be argumentative, bellager
8:43 pm
able to. condescending, patronizing to the people. at the end of the day she needs the left wing democrats to win in november, assuming she's the democratic nominee, and she probably will be. >> michael mentioned the benghazi debate. she has an appointment, if you will, before the house. how will that impact her chances? >> i think that - i think that's a very, very important day for her. if she can get exonerated. all of this blows over and she can re-establish the trust that she may have lost with independent voters and conservative democrats. if it goes badly the other way, that's when joe biden looks hard at the race. >> we have not talked about the political elephant in the room, joe biden, the vice president who seems to be considering - are you thinking he's going to do it, will he run? what do you take from that? >> my gut is he will not run.
8:44 pm
if something were to happen, a scenario in which the benghazi hearing blows up, that she doesn't do well, something we don't know about from the emails, he's the pinch-hitter for the democrats. it will not come from bernie sanders or others that you see on tuesday night. i don't think he'll run, no. >> what do you think? >> he is the next man in line. if she stumbles, he'll be the person, the party all coalesces behind. she has to stumble first. >> thank you for your type of. david heller, political consultant joining us from miami, and al jazeera's political correspondent michael shure. i am sure we'll here more about it come the debate on tuesday. >> good to talk with you. >> now, to this video of a high school football stadium in tacoma washington. kevin is coming up next with the
