he does not want to end his career by getting rolled over the hillary clinton freight train. if she does look vulnerable, i think there is a real chance he will jump in. mark: if no one jumps and that can really tumble her, and she looks weak, i think you could see joe biden say why not? why not stand on the stage and make the case and try to be a hillary clinton alternative? she is externally strong in polling. the frenzy on the e-mails has created an impression of weakness later than it is, but at the same time, there is a quiet in the party. people who say she should have a spirited challenger that makes her stronger if she becomes the nominee. john: she is still very strong in the polling. he is actually white week. -- quite weak. he does not want to be a three-time loser. that is the big p or him. he will not run unless he can

the governor's lap foreign policy experience, with the exception of john kasich, if he runs. they need to find a way to clear that bar. while you match up better against hillary clinton at the governor versus a senator, you still have to match up on foreign policy. marco rubio in lindsey graham in particular will be more fluid in those things. as we listen to the prospects talk about foreign policy, they are all still looking to find their way in the right position. john: i totally agree with all of that. you are a student of history, and i am a student of history. there is a reason why george bush, ronald reagan. governors have an argument to make. an argument that does resonate with a lot of people. governor spent every day dealing with real lives and real people. it gives them not only a better argument for retail skills and some senators. mark: a creature watching tim.
