"Meaty show. Good morning. Wisconsin, eleven eight. We're having some fun before the, this, the real show starts, I am joined on this Friday, foreign presented by the great close network health. There. I say legends in journalism. Television and and Franson careful to my immediate left. Joann Williams host, the black nouveau, and walk ups and longtime TV anchor and reporter, and what else is on your resume to stop journalists, lots of independent filmmaker yes, we talked about that last and on my sort of left. Bill, glavin legend in Milwaukee print journalists. Thank you so much. And you both kind of got stuck in the capital drive traffic, welcome to that nightmare. Yeah. Thank you. Which I will tell people if you're trying to get the Radio City, try to avoid that little stretch, capital, east of seventy seven twenty east capitol drive. All right, we're going to jump right in the Friday forum. It's always for me. Talking about the stories in a little more depth than we talked about during the week. And it comes at you fast and furious. Right. And this week was no different than all kinds of things to talk about had from your newspaper. Craig Gilbert on does a great job covering Washington DC, politics, as do you, and we're talking about twenty twenty and his recent piece in the journal sentinel, says, twenty twenty could be an unbelievable turnout in the presidential election. Do you agree? Yes. He, he said, I think one hundred year flood or you know, if you look at the electoral map right now, there are four states that look like they're going to decide the twenty twenty presidential election. Wisconsin is one of them, Pennsylvania. Michigan Florida, the others. There's a lot of concentrated. You know, people are concentrating on Wisconsin. I counted down the other day already this year. There have been eight visits by a presidential contenders or the vice president already eight. Yeah. And obviously, that's one of the reasons that the NCAA is here and JoAnne twenty twenty has that feel and we, we saw the enthusiasm in two thousand sixteen although at least one side of the political, I was disappointed in their turnout, because they, let's be honest took Wisconsin for granted the, the candidate Hillary Clinton didn't show up. Do you agree that twenty twenty could be this hundred year? Flood of voter turnout, Wisconsin. We've seen it happen for a lot of different races. Oh, yes. I think it will be I think people will turn out and vote this time they turned out for the midterms in surprising numbers. And I think in twenty twenty people are going to say I know my vote counts, and so I'm going to cast it. A lot of candidates to pick. I was going to I was going to ask you about that some silly season. They have two dozen candidates. That's okay. That's pay. I counted I counted them up. See, I got letters your homework and, you know, there's, there's senators congressman mayor's non elected people, and then there's Joe Biden, who comes in. I don't know what category. But there's a whole slew people who said they want to run for president. I think that's great. Anybody who needs the criteria should run. How do you manage the bait though that process when you have that many candidates, I know they've, they've set these qualifiers. But it sounded like the last time I looked like seventeen of at already hit it. So that's still a full stage or two stages. If you split it up, now you're talking twenty four. We haven't even added a reality TV star. It'd be a couple of those coming in as well, if we mimic, twenty six stages, two nights. I am a be there. That's what it's going to be. The problem is for us. Those voters out here who have to decide who are gonna vote for. If you're a democrat, you're going to be really watching that they don't have much time to say anything of substance, because there's so many people what do you get sixty seconds to minutes. What could you possibly say in two minutes, that's gonna lead you to believe that's the person I want for president? I think people make make up their mind based on a lot of other things. Well, I think what they're gonna say is they're going to take their forty five seconds, give their position on maybe one or two issues, and then they're going to say go to my website to find out more. I agree. It'll be named dot com. In that debate could be I had the your Senator Tammy Baldwin on good. Get I know you've been long and hard for that long time. And it's a process you have to break the barriers down to kind of get things like that. But she was an interesting conversation. She's doing a lot of things. She says that are bipartisan working on things, like the, the, the brave act of for veterans affairs. The fair drug pricing act talked about a dairy farmer, some of the things he's working on. When you talk about bipartisanship. It's the goal that I think most reasonable rational people look for right? We're going to get along and get get stuff done. That's really how you get things done. Because with the sixty minimum requirement in the Senate and other qualifiers you have to have somebody else, come across the aisle. Do you think that we're any closer to achieving any of that is because it seems like we're going direct boxes direction? It would seem that way. However. I think if anybody is going to be a serious candidate for president. They're going to have to not only say things that their base will approve, and like, but they're going to have to say things that the other side likes to, and then they're going to have to say, I will work with whoever is in congress to make sure things get done the benefit the American people. They have to say, I will do whatever kind of compromise is necessary to take care of the people because they are elected as a Representative of all the people would compromise compromise is a dirty word, and that's a mean but to a lot of candidates, I think it's a dirty word. They, they, they don't want to rile their base, especially when you're talking about democratic citing some candidates that are pretty far left. I think the system in Washington DC is broken. I've said this numerous times it's, it's being run now is a parliamentary system, not as a US style democracy and one that. Happens basically, you have two sides. They never get together. You can see in Britain on the Brexit debate. They can't compromise. That's what happens when you get a parliamentary style system. That's what we now have let me ask you in a simpler way, is that the new reality show. That's what we're going to deal with conflict. Yes, that is what we're going to deal with. I don't know if it breaks, but that's what we're going to deal with it keeps getting worse. It will continue to get worse as is my guest. So essentially, when you have that system, the, the party in power in the president's seats, and depending on what happens in the house, and the Senate, they decide things for four years, and then the other party comes back, because we our country that's had cycles, back and forth Republican democrat. It's a constant revolving door of policies. Not what's the best policy? But what's the most politically expedient policy? That's not good governments. I think the only thing that'll pull both sides together is some sort of big national issue perhaps. National crisis where we have to say everybody is an American, and we have to all work together to fix whatever this thing is. If you look at what happened after nine eleven for very short time, there were people talking to each other for a very short time, there were people saying we have to all stay together because we are all Americans didn't last too long. And we horribly would not want anything like that to happen again. But we have to have something that everybody in both sides of the I'll say this is important to the whole country. What can we do to address it? Yeah. It's, it's sad that it takes something like that to, to kind of get us back on track again, I'm a guy that believes in compromise. I'm always a fan of local government because they actually produce and get things done. They can't play the game where you just talk about stuff, and then never do it. I'm fundamentally disappointed. And this is a guy coming from a guy who talks about politics, all the time in both sides in what they do, when they get elected when I go to Washington DC, it's frustrating. I don't wanna hear one more person talk about stuff show me in a meaningful way with compromise, what you're going to get done in Washington DC. Well, they can't even do an infrastructure Bill. I mean, let's be honest. They can't even do the basic and I mean, I don't mean to be so down on this on this on this morning, but, you know, it is a fundamentally broken system right now in Washington DC. I don't know how it gets repaired. I'm certainly hoping would but but I just don't see you talk about the country. Coming together after two thousand one well, you know, going back to Craig Gilbert story that two thousand four election of produced that high turnout, because the country was so divided that stay seventy seventy plus percent now. So, so that, you know, it's we're in one of these cycles. Now, I don't know how it gets broken. I hope it does. But I just don't know how is there a political candidate or figure that you've you see somebody that could bring people back? No others. There's no save your out there. Is that what you're saying? No, no. Because it's that's the wrong way of looking at it. I think that, that it's not going to be one individual. It has to be a group of people, I'm gonna disagree with you. And this is not going to be a popular choice, Joe Biden. Well, I think I think Joe Biden, obviously is, you know, represents the old style Democratic Party. He's going to have trouble winning the nomination and his party. Why do you think that I actually would say he's the favourite? But I think that the way that party's going, he is going to. It's not a guarantee. I think he's I think he's a clear favourite, I think, and I've said he will win the nomination and he is a guy because I've talked him a bunch of times that understands why compromise actually can work. We all have our different ideas about policy and opinions about things we all do. We see him play it on social media everyday. But he's a guy that understands that now will he will he beat Donald Trump. That's the big question JoAnn Williams Bill Glover joining institute, the Friday forum, I used to say to different people from two to four walks of life. But if you're not that the same walk of life. Yes. Thanks to the great folks have network health more with these two next radio. WTMJ.

"In arlington. One of the things I wanted to mention as I talked about this great while Bill hickok book and joking with the author Tom Claven about it. As we're trying to describe what sort of a man while Bill hickok was. He was a rare fish. Dresser was very very weird as parents always tried to address well bathed daily, and you can imagine in the old west that was not an easy thing to do. And not only was not easy. It was not something many did beating weekly was exceptional. But he used to bathe daily. Well over six feet tall. Which was very big for those days. He ever check was maybe five four or five five for most men. But as joking with Tom glavin, there is a passage in the book where the wife of George Armstrong Custer himself, quite a character. Of course describes. While Bill hickok in her memoir that was published in eighteen ninety. And if you consider the times, it's difficult to imagine a more lusty passage here. Asked Thomas at Tom with did they ever get to know each other in the biblical sense, as the expression goes, he said, well, you know, she always danced around that you never know. But listen to this passage how she describes wild Bill hickok, and this will give you a good example wide such a fun book to read. Tall live in free in every motion. He wrote and walked as if every muscle was perfection, and the careless swing of his body as he moved seemed perfectly in keeping with the man the country the time in which he lived I do not recall anything finer in the way of physical perfection than wild Bill when he swung himself lightly from his saddle and with graceful swaying step squarely Senate Scholla's in well-poised head approached our tent for orders. He was rather fantastically cloud. Of course. But all seemed perfectly in keeping with the time and place. He did not make an armory of his waist, but carry two pistols, you were top boots riding breeches and dark blue flannel. Shirt with scarlet set in the front a loose neck handkerchief left, his fine firm throat free. I do not remember all his features. But the Frank Manley expression of his fearless is and his courteous manner gave one a feeling of confidence in his word. And his undaunted courage. Yikes. The only thing missing from that is they're saying is again, I joked earlier this evening is why I do believe that I have a case of the VP's. Quite exceptional book, quite an exceptional, man. If I can find one last passage that had a lot to do with how skilled he was with his handguns. It was said that he can throw a tomato can the air and. Well, here we go. He enjoyed putting on shooting exhibitions, especially impressive was his Ambi district. Ambidextrous? Accuracy witnesses reported kill all of this. This is the eyewitness accounts. Witnesses reported seeing hickok driving a cork through the neck of a whiskey bottle at twenty paces. The bullet. Wow. Splitting a bullet on the edge of a dime at the same distance twenty paces and putting his many as a dozen bullet holes in a tomato can that he'd been tossed in the air? Yeah. This guy was a gunfighter. Letting the public know he was always at the top of his game could dissuade ambitious gunmen from trying to take hickok on such men that may have entertained thoughts of gunfighter glory, but they weren't suicidal. This was a man who was on the cusp of becoming the eighteen sixties equivalent of a matinee idol in a country. Civil war glory was receding into history. And we're now was looking west for new legends. And he filled that Bill boy did he feel that Bill glavin just dealt with what he could absolutely find as a fact and there there's plenty in there. So just take note of the book, it's a great read. And if you know someone who is a history buff or a fan of the old west. Oh, goodness. Gracious. Are you set for that? We've got about a minute left to call. We're going to be a minute left before we had done here. I will be back in a couple of weeks, and I'll be sneaking in during the month here and there because they'll be filling in for Bradley, Jay, something guests, I'll have on with me during the remainder of the month. Well, it's about time to. To have some of our old for guests on with us. So you can expect that we're going to have Terry Downes, the director of homeland security Middlesex community college will be pop again before the month is over. We're also going to have Gary summers of antiques roadshow collectables fame. Joining me before we are done with February where you can call in and get yourself appraised. Find out how much your stuff might be worth. And you just never know who else might be popping in and before we are done here. A couple of quick scores for you before we wrap things up. Again, Bruins beat the LA kings five to four and over time. That's the good news. The bad news at this is really bad news. Trust me, there's going to be a lot of collateral damage in Celtics locker room because of this game. Celtics lost to the LA clippers won twenty three to one twelve at one point the Celtics had twenty eight point lead and blew it. The most that they have given up. Since two thousand three enjoy tonight. Hope you did to talk to you soon. Everybody's CBS news update. Now, there are two women accusing Virginia dilute tenant governor Justin Fairfax of sexually assaulting them. And both stand ready to testify, but see begets, the coal Killian tells us. Fairfax maintains he will not resign. Meanwhile, debonair Ralph Northam told state employees in a letter to stay in office. Nothing last week a racist photo from his medical school yearbook surface, north them initially said he was in the picture only to backtrack later, then acknowledge he wants wore black face. So did the state's attorney general Mark herring? Bloomberg Suhil Kapur explains. It's a train wreck for Virginia. Democrats that top three Democrats in Virginia are facing bipartisan calls to step aside. And if they do that they would be handing over power to the Republican speaker of the house in a redistricting cycle where they're redrawing the map. So they're hanging tight right now. It's not clear any of them are going to step aside at this point one democratic delegates says he. Is preparing articles of impeachment against Fairfax, CBS, news update and Allison keys..
