"I was opposing one piece of legislation as versus another. I mean ninety nine percent of the candidates who would try to deliver that line would have failed and most host canned lines are cringe-worthy. I try to stay away from them. The candidates love them. They love to have them in their back pocket. I think it's a security blanket yeah i i. I agree that i mean. I also think anyone who wrote that. Lunch should have been fired debate prep adviser because it's it's so corny and so obvious and i i think to me the disappointing thing that exchanges the santos doesn't have some comeback for that or some way to kind of shove it back at them. You know i agree you see that but i think you see that less often that you think and rarely that insanely awkwardly i think overall this is part of why fix santos won the night. I think that vinik has style throughout the debate. That's like what we would call in. The business like sunday show style. He has this way of kind of talking about things. In in a way that's kind of really good for like meet the press or or this week or something like that but just doesn't seem strong on a debate stage and when he gets strong he gets kind of fakey and weird like the i'm going to veto the budget moment. Assisting my issues with vic in the debate were more on style than anything thing else leading up to it both in terms of the beginning of this episode but also the episodes prior in this season really set up to think that vinik was gonna just dominate dominate that he was he was the front runner to win the debate by a long shot by a wide margin so then when this is what we got i was a little bit surprised because how can it felt i thought what metric are they judging that. He's so good at the debates. I also think when you think about the arca season headed into this debate. I mean it is the classic classic situation where vanik is the more experienced candidate the more seasoned candidate. It's all set up for santos to win right and syllabi like kennedy nixon or a liberal like obama mccain or bill clinton against george bush and ninety two where for one of these younger dynamic candidates to stand on the stage with the more experienced more seasoned person like he wins by being able to hold his own with vinick and so if matt santos can stand up there and go toe oh toe with vinegar on these issues and even if it's a draw that's kind of a win for santos. Justice was for kennedy against nixon or younger bill clinton against a george bush. The blessing of lowered expectations just like an evening out of stature. There is a style thing that vinick does that. I like in the section where he says says congressman santos running a very brave campaign. I have to give him that. I relate to give you credit for that. He's actually promising a tax increase which is a brave thing to do because the american people don't want it and it's the wrong thing to do because the american people don't want it and that sort of repetition felt like a nice move that one i was like oh..

"Before we get into this week's discussion of the debate. We want to clarify one thing from last week's episode we realized as we you're talking about. The version of the episode on netflix is missing about eight minutes of content but it's also missing on itunes and some other digital distribution platforms so after we wrapped wrapped up with lawrence last week. We actually talked about it a little more. Here's a little bit of that. We'll so here is the likely source they might have had to do this. Cutting thing for syndication because this show did go into syndication in different places <hes> yes it didn't go into syndication in a big way but it went into syndication enough that somebody had to cut that for syndication and then probably it's that same department for bravo right and possibly free you know european and others and so then it's from that source that they are in effect syndicating it again to netflix and this would be the only episode that suffered because all the rest of them mar. You know the regular length right. I think you're i think you're absolutely right that must be it so let's <hes> mount the complaint to warner brothers and tell them they've got to create a digital version for history and preferably the one with my mother if they could just just just use the east coast we should probably guide the more likely toward warner brothers 'cause when you think about it why the hell would net flicks bother exactly yeah no they. They don't make those kinds of decisions so that could be the solution to to the mystery and hopefully we can find a way to get warner brothers to get the d._v._d. Version to digital platforms instead of the syndicated version we should have made that clear in the last episode our policies and our apologies to net flicks for any angry tweets. They might have gotten undeservedly. This is our second of two episodes covering the debate now for this week. Our coverage today is going to be about what was discussed by the two candidates in the episode and to help us along with that. We have two very special guests who have a lot of history working on debates themselves. We have returned to the podcast ronald papas murph clain. You already know him well. He was chief of staff to vice president joe biden. He was chief of staff half to vice president al gore. He has a long storied career that also includes preparing every single democratic presidential candidate since one thousand nine hundred two do we also are joined by beth myers. Beth was a senior adviser on mitt romney's two thousand twelve campaign for president and she was a campaign manager on his two thousand eight presidential race and before that she was chief of staff for all four years of the romney governorship in massachusetts beth. Thank you so much for joining us. You are not a super familiar west wing watcher as you told us because you had kids at the time and this was not something you are attuned to and there was no tibo so you had to watch it live or you're stuck dark ages the dark ages so this is your first time watching this episode. Actually you know i think i might have watched that episode in doing debate prep because it looked familiar when i was watching it no kidding yeah and run. Have you seen the episode before yes. I saw it before and i you know i've watched it for the year's time. Have you ever watched both the west coast and the east coast live versions to see the differences between the two. Oh very cool. Do you have a preference. We know that the one we've all watched the west coast. Is there a qualitative difference. We know there's the big debate about casta in one of the two and it really doesn't appear in the other one of the two so you get like a whole extra issue in one of the two episodes well. One thing that we've discovered is that the version on netflix version in itunes and really any kind of post syndication airing of the west wing is missing several minutes of the episode. The original episode aired for fifty two minutes the version that lived on afterwards outside of the d._v._d. Version is only forty four minutes so the bunch of stuff has actually got cut for a lot of people. I myself have never seen the full length version of the debate but we're going to muddle through it with what information we do have the forty four minutes that we've got first of all. What did you think about just the optics of.
