6:38 am
seen first of all a president of the united states, a sitting president, spend so much time on the campaign trail, and scavaging somebody else's opponent. this is really unprecedented. i think it tells you that the democrats are particularly nervous about turn-out in places like philadelphia. and if mrs. obama, mrs. clinton, doesn't bring the black vote in the city to up where obama's was, down significantly, just got real problem on election day, so get out the vote, really going to be concentrated democrats in philadelphia, for donald trump, it will be the western part of pennsylvania, where he has to get that, you know, that white vote, say the blue collar white, without a college degree vote, that's trending very, very strongly toward donald trump, two demographic, so different, jim >> push the get out to vote. hillary clinton of course has bruce springsteen, john bon jovi, katie perry, all helping her get out the vote in philadelphia. do you think those celebrity concerts actually work? >> i don't know.
