what i' m interested in -- how did that reconfigure the republican race? they are bickering like crazy among themselves trying to find someone who is a more establishment candidate that people can coalesce behind. does the fact that clinton may have secured this nomination helped to push that forward? >> it' s fascinating to me. yesterday with donald trump waving a water bottle around, talking about how this was marco rubio, sweating so much during the debate, coming out of a swimming pool. rubio says that trump shouldst -- sue someone over his face? this has really gotten juvenile. but there are voters who are their choices right now. it' s hard to imagine anybody that they are least likely to walk across the aisle for that hillary clinton. that' s a big problem in a place like ohio, which is a swing state where she is going to need to pick up some swing voters to make sure that that stays in the democratic camp.
