"Good afternoon from New York. I'm Chuck Todd and this is the Chuck Todd cast today. The Senate continues. Its impeachment hearings. We're GONNA have opening. Statements finally getting underway to house impeachment managers essentially with about seven eight hours per day for the next three days telling their stories of what they believe. The president did illegally and why they believe he should be ousted from office but in the business. I'm calling this. PODCAST is what we call a little bit of counter programming You might remember. There's this thing called. The Iowa caucuses. They are less than two weeks away. So we're going all in on on Iowa if you want impeachment news. That's my buddy Kornacki. He's got a wonderful article to podcasts. Go listen to it if you want Iowa listen to this one my guest Jeff Link. He's he's doing something unusual this year. He's not working. For a presidential candidates a longtime democratic strategist and Iowa and he is actually fronting a a nonprofit if it group that is trying to bring attention to rural America. It's called focus on rural America. They did some polling to the most recent poll that is out there. Jeff Link knows a lot about first first and second choice while that matters and he believes his poll later in the show. I'll be joined by Phil Rucker in Carolina there the authors of the new book. That's gotten the president's attention it's called a very stable. Genius Richly reported well source book with a lot of new detail about the president's behavior office. And what those around him did or did did not do but first jeff link. I think he's a little hesitant. Probably being so public on here I think he thinks his poll slightly better than than and sellers. But find out out we're GONNA find out well and gets high grades. There's no doubt about it. That's right. You're a new student. Good luck excellent. We'll check thanks. It's really good to be with Hugh and We're looking forward to having you out or you hide out I I. I'm hoping to be there more than just a night. it is it is All of that's up in the air for all of us Me and I'm going to have a team of people there. I'm a lot of it. Depends on where we are in the Senate trial and where duty calls on on that front. But it's It's let me ask you this. How far less than two weeks away? How much has the impeachment trial trial? been like a wet blanket on Iowa I. I don't think it's been that much of a wet blanket. I I I honestly don't think people are tracking the impeachment impeachment. Trial Minute by minute. I people here. No it's going on but You know honestly whether below zero the last three days. That was more of of a topic of conversation than the impeachment trial largely. Because I think people believe McConnell has put the fix in on this and it's just a matter of how long it's it's GonNa take before McConnell does what he wants to do anyway It's unfortunate for the senators that that are stuck in DC and are able to campaign out here in New Hampshire But I I don't think people are really kind of on the edge of their seats with this one all right Not You and I have. I've I've been a source on multiple caucuses I we've been through four or five of these competitive Democratic caucuses in one way or the other Compare this one to eight four in two thousand and sort of you know I. I think this feels more like oh four than any of the others in in sort of the last couple of decades. But you tell me Yeah I swell and I'm old enough to remember eight. I started Working on the first Joe Biden for president right about eight hundred eighty eight or eighty four very similar so yes. I'm glad you brought up eighty. Yeah I think bigger field so I think it feels like Like eight in. Oh four in in eight. There were a lot of candidates but essentially at this point. It was all about Obama Obama and Clinton and Edwards. Let's not forget it was a genuine three way race. Yes it was. It was but this is different because you know we have Ford five way race. You think there's four four different potential winter or not and I do I think it is just as plausible for any of the top four to win and as it is for any of the top four to get fourth. How about fifth and is in his at behind? uncommitted or behind me Well you know we. We asked in our poll whether if your first choice was not viable meaning not at fifteen percent of the people that attend your precinct What will you do will you Caucus for somebody else we go uncommitted stay uncommitted or will you go home and Seventeen percent said they would stay uncommitted committed and that means that we could have a number of precincts that elect a delegate to the county convention as uncommitted. Well it's not the uncommitted as one one before people forget Jimmy never won the Ivankov. That's right. He finished second right He did what the new rules on. UNCOMMITTED I WANNA fill people in unlike previous years. You could sit on committed when you got to your precinct. And if they even whether whether the uncommitted grouping made threshold of fifteen percent or not and you could still leave it this time. The rules indicate that uncommitted treated like a candidate. And if you hit fifteen thresholds been made and you can't lose support. Yeah Yeah it's it's a big change And I- in any group. If you're if you're with a candidate who's viable you can't move and you know in the past If you were say you were with the with the candidate with the most people in your caucus sometimes you would send Some of your group Group To another campaign so that they could get a delegate Right to keep your your opponent the most dangerous opponent from getting the extra trudell at you. You send people to somebody else and that sort of gamesmanship is gonNA be Either more limited or it's going to be a little trickier to execute cute. Let me. Let's go through things a little bit here. The top four candidates who's who of those four who's got the the the least amount of statewide coverage if you get my drift right. I my guess. Is that both Bernie and Biden have wide support support. Meaning they'll probably be make threshold in the most precincts. Is that a fair assessment. Or Am I over looking Warren here. A little bit I think Nick Warren probably makes threshold in in most precincts as well and Pete is a little uneven I gotta I I think all four make threshold in a lot of places you know. There's you think that fifteen is a hard floor even for Warren I look. I'll be honest I have. It feels like warns bleeding support. Well but remember. She had the strongest organization the earliest they have been everywhere. They have strong relationships. CBS throughout the state with their precinct captains and with their organization. So I remember being told that about Dick Gephardt two thousand four. How did that work out? Well I I would. I would put the Warren Organization up against the Gephardt Organization in. Oh four Any Day of the week They they really have done a nice job. And you gotTa give them credit had it for that And so I think that's that's kind of sustained her even though she was down in our poll from where she was in September. She's still in second place she's she's still above viability I think I think she's GonNa be a factor Amy Yang Star. Yup I assume amy has basically her strength is probably I assume north. You know the closer to Minnesota a stronger she gets. I think so and I think she'll do pretty well in western Iowa. Okay spent more time there than most right. She's done the floods she she made. Yeah upstairs she she made a big deal out of being. Hey this is like the iron range. Yeah that's right. And she did the ninety nine counties so she's she's been everywhere where although she hit like twenty seven counties in two or three days in December so everybody knows that trick. Yeah okay that graphic but I I gotta tell you I was. I was having coffee with somebody. This morning. who is expected to be a warrant supporter in she said. Yep I think I'M GONNA end up with with closure I think I think club could Have a good night on On Caucus night to mourn register endorsement. You know newspaper. Endorsements mean less and less all the time per democratic primary voters in certain communities still care about certain newspaper endorsements and is that still the case with the register You know the registers GonNa have an impact in centralized. I think it state-wide imprimature is is not what it once was. I mean you know back in the eighty eight cycle or Ninety two or two thousand I think thank statewide. It had more of an impact didn't really help Edwards and four. I mean Edwards basically went from fifth to second and I think it was a surprise. Yeah when when it's when it's news I don't think they're going to endorse two candidates. I bet they pick one But I think It'll be interesting to see I. I wouldn't be surprised if they pick KLOBUCHAR or if they pick budget I had somebody. That's what I keep hearing is that it's down to those two somebody tell me that it really depends ultimately what the editorial page team thinks their mandate is meaning. Are they there to protect Iowa's place in the process. And if that's that's the case that's one type of candidate and if they're there to represent mid Westerners then that's perhaps another rationale for who they pick pick like it of it as someone said to me who's been through the process with the editorial going through the interview it's clear saving preserving Iowa's status as an important first state matters a lot to the editorial board and that will have some impact on who they pick. Well it'll be interesting to see what their rationale is You know I think the register editorial board will be in a similar position to a lot of Iowans right now. And that is the really conflicted. what we saw in our poll Five or six candidates. Seven candidates have extremely high favorables You Know Net plus sixty plus sixty five The Iowans like this field and I think that's part the reason why they're having such a hard time settling on a candidate. is because that they're satisfied with the field they like what what Each of these candidates is saying A and and how they're representing themselves and I think that's why the reason that they're satisfied with the field or they like all these candidates but they haven't been convinced either one any the Mar- the are the answer to be trump. Well certainly the the premium is is if someone could look in the mirror and say oh well this is the candidate that can beat trump in November..

"NPR news I'm David green in Culver city California and I'm Steve Inskeep in Washington DC good morning the house has formally approved an impeachment inquiry focused on president trump it was very nearly a party line vote it establishes a process to make the inquiry more public people investigators have interviewed in private may be interviewed again at hearings seen on TV the White House we should recall has not disputed the facts found in testimony and documents for the most part president trump did ask you cranes president to investigate Democrats including his political rival Joe Biden the president instead argues that his conduct was quote perfect and that the investigation is unfair Hogan Gidley as Deputy Assistant to the president in the White House principal deputies press secretary he's on the phone good morning Sir good morning does the house vote in the process has now been set up for public hearings make this process any more fair well two things first let me start off with the premise out right which is completely incorrect the president was talking to president elect give out correct it is not the link you ran on and one on looting out corruption in Ukraine it's a worldwide fact everyone knows that Ukraine was a corrupt country that's why the Lynskey was able to win so easily the present was simply talking to him about the corruption use of the term to make sure justice Mr Gidley I wanna make sure we're clear on this you said the premise was incorrect I've just been reading again the transcript of the caller not a transcript the record of the call the president asks about a couple of specific things one is a conspiracy theory involving crowd size crowd striking a Democratic National Committee server the other involves Joe Biden and a son hunter Biden those are the only things the president asked about of all the possible corruption the only things the president asked about do you disagree that the president last year lance president on okay let's talk about where his political rivals for twenty twenty everyone in the world and forgive me but I'm old enough to remember when Democrats actually cared about what happened the twenty sixteen election that's what he was talking about and quite frankly this is what the president ran on in one on one and that is making sure that the money we give these countries these hundreds of millions of dollars are actually spent wisely now I understand Democrats don't care about how we spend taxpayer dollars at home much less abroad but this president does let me just to the impeachment vote I think we should move there well let me go head straight way to Hogan we've got a we've got a corrected fact here you said the president did not ask about a twenty twenty rival the record of the call the White House record the called the record you released says that president trump asked about Joe Biden so that is totally false what you just said why do you say that falls thing it in relation to the twenty sixteen corruption he wasn't talking about twenty twenty and you and your listeners know that what I was fighting involved with the crowd strike thing exactly if you're talking about the twenty sixteen election and you're talking about the corruption is it related to Ukraine you talk about the person who dealt with Ukraine that was killed by I'm sorry but running for president doesn't insulate you from any criticism or any investigations only true let's go on to your question about the process now because you want to make a point about the process and whether it's more fair right it's not what the Democrats here have done age he's run a sham impeachment process all behind closed doors without any sunlight whatsoever selectively leaking pieces of information without full testimony to try in building narrative moving into the second round the vote yesterday except say we're gonna make portions of the next part public after we've already tried to tie dye your hands down your feet blindfold you put in a closet and beat you senseless they were just got take the blindfold off around two round three is organized taken from the Judiciary Committee and we expect though that you're gonna be bloodied up enough where it won't matter the problem is who they're fighting against the Donald Trump is gonna stand up around three fight back yeah it's interesting I think Democrats would characterize it differently but there is an element of truth in what you said that they would have to admit which is that they've just taken a bunch of testimony in these private hearings and they're going to call those witnesses back in public and expect them to stand behind those stories which we which we largely now is that going to make it challenging to defend the president in public right and face cross examination and face after a public at this union private I agree so so do you do you do you think that there's going to be difficulty defending that case given that so much of it is already on the record no because you're only hearing you know selective pieces of one portion and then also yesterday for example I think you're doing a private is beginning to backfire their reports Mister Morrison testimony was that he felt the present had done nothing wrong nothing illegal so they're all types of things coming out of these hearings and and you're kind of making not white which is a nice for the American people to get to see this out in the open and in public if you get a parking ticket your afforded due process you can confront the policeman who gave it to you you can talk to the judge about it you can submit evidence you can ask questions although although as you know the police might investigate that in private first then you get a trial which could be coming who knows how can get Lee thanks so much really appreciate it thanks for the time he's Deputy Assistant to the president and NPR White House reporter Asia Roscoe as been listening and what struck you there well I I think we we got a a a glimpse of what the White House strategy is on this this idea that everything goes back to twenty sixteen and he did not specifically say president trump on that call with the Ukrainian president didn't say I want you to investigate my twenty twenty rival I'm the man is a twenty twenty rival that's all down but he didn't say I want you to do this for twenty twenty and that's kind of what White House adviser kellyanne Conway was saying yesterday he did not specifically say it I am but I I think what Democrats and what others are saying is that just the very fact that he was asking for this investigation and at the same time holding up aid that that looks like pressure to them and we should remember that even though this Tim Morrison of that national security council did say yesterday or we know in his opening statement that he didn't think anything illegal happens there are other officials who say that they were very concerned by that call and peers Asia Roscoe thanks so much thank you one mainstay of presidential campaigns is the cattle calls these big events that feature speeches from the candidates one right after another and there is one tonight in Iowa it's the mother of them all it is called the liberty and justice celebration and it's known for its maker break moments fourteen

land and here are the co hosts clay masters and Kate Payne I was liberty and justice celebration is a fundraiser but unlike any other cattle calls it's also a spectacle that's Katy Perry rallying Hillary Clinton supporters four years ago for decades it's been a chance for candidates to show off the event used to be called the Jefferson Jackson dinner but it's been renamed as the Democratic

Iowa political science professor Donna Hoffman says campaigns understand they need to give the performance of their careers this is a good test for campaign in terms of their own organization but also in terms of a where they stand with their most fervent supporters the activists of the Democratic Party in the state but perhaps the most pivotal performance came in two thousand seven hundred that year then senator Barack Obama need this event about so much more than the speech Obama and his wife Michelle danced with the drum line in the streets of downtown des Moines supporters chanted and marched into the arena that night six candidates gave speeches but Obama was facing off against the apparent front runner Hillary Clinton at that point in the race Clinton had a commanding lead over a bomber and she was focused on the general election America is done with the Republicans and their failed policies and their refusal to the future that we deserve Obama spoke last night when he walked out onto the stage it was the culmination of months of organizing across the state that night he gave a speech that is still seen as one of the defining moments of his career I don't want to red

that night he says it was clear that Obama understood the political moment that evening flipped the script on on on the rest of that caucus and I think the Clinton campaign sort of stalled out from that moment forward and Obama left the room with a ton of energy and that that momentum really carried through caucus night Obama showed he had the organization to make it to the White House that's what's at stake this year to humanize Donna Hoffman says it's do or die for the mid and lower tier candidates and she says former vice president Joe Biden has the most to lose he's going to want to give the speech of his life if he's going to continue to be in that top tier in the state but the same Mr Sanders the same is true of warm the same is true with a judge and so the pressure's really on those top tier candidates in particular and three minds Iowans will head into the cold to meet with their neighbors and community centers and high school gyms to caucus and tonight these current

"Okay. Here's another change that will impact Democrats seeking the presidential nomination. Dnc chairman Tom Perez told me that some states that previously held caucuses will now hold primaries. Are northstar here is we want to return our power to the grassroots. That's why we will have more primaries. Unless caucuses I firmly believe that when more people participate in primaries have larger participation that's good for our democracy.

That alleviates one of the concerns that we're gonna nominate someone who's not in the mainstream as, you know, candidates Sanders beat candidate Clinton and all the caucus states and lost in most of the primary candidate Obama do really well in the caucus stage did tremendously won't caucus pretty well in the open states, as well Messina's point is this caucuses tend to attract the most committed partisans and activists these are the people who are willing to spend several hours on a random weekday to cast just one vote. Those activists tend to be motivated more by ideology than your everyday primary voter on the democratic side. They're usually much more liberal than the party as a whole on the Republican side. More conservative caucuses are also less expensive for candidates than traditional primaries. That's because the universe of potential voters is also smaller, you don't need to spend millions of dollars trying to reach them all on TV, the most famous or infamous caucus, however is not going away that caucus, of course, is Iowa. After the problems of two thousand sixteen Democrats in the state have made some reforms on things like transparency of votes cast and ability to cast a ballot without having to show up at a caucus. I asked Jeff link about the role that Iowa plays in the presidential nominating process. Iowa has been a place where those who beat expectations can sometimes become the winner and with this larger field, I think everyone sort of expects the current front runners of Biden and Sanders to do well. And there is a huge opening for any of the other eighteen candidates like who gets third does one of the names that are not so familiar now get second or actually win the caucuses. So we could see somebody come from nowhere or the other is not that someone does unexpectedly. Well, but that a candidate does unexpectedly poorly. They could it's a double edged sword. One of the scare. Things to have in Iowa is an early lead. Because you've gotta maintain that league. And if you don't I mean, remember Howard Dean in two thousand four was a head for a long time in Iowa and dropped at the last minute and John Kerry ended up winning and really the dean campaign spiraled downhill very quickly after that. Do you? Do you feel it when you're in your own caucus? There's I get an actual energy there for a candidate. Can you really get a sense of? I think so and so really is going to win this thing, you absolutely do in tell you one story from two thousand eight I was at my precinct Senator Harkin happen to show up with Senator Durbin from Illinois, the Clinton people all showed up the Obama people were kind of milling around. But there was a line that extended from the gymnasium all the way out the door literally outside, and that was the line for people trying to register to vote, and I remember walking Senator Durbin out the hallway to look at the line. And I said, I think your candidates going to have a very good night tonight. Obviously, Barack Obama surprised a lot of people by winning the Iowa caucuses, but you could feel it in the room at our precinct. Jeff link is democratic strategist.

"Here's another change that will impact Democrats seeking the presidential nomination. Dnc chairman Tom Perez told me that some states that previously held caucuses will now hold primaries. Are northstar here is we want to return our power to the grassroots. That's why we will have more primaries and less caucuses. I firmly believe that when more people participate in primaries have larger participation that's good for our democracy. So I some definitions what actually is a caucus and how is it different from primary. Well, a caucus is actually meeting you meet at a certain time in a certain place. Whereas primary is a vote you go in and you vote privately that's Jeff link. He's participated in a lot of caucuses. We're gonna come back to him. But first, let's turn to Jim Messina longtime democratic political strategist Obama twenty twelve campaign manager who thinks it's a good thing that some states such as Minnesota and Colorado are swapping the caucus for a primary that alleviates one of the concerns.

"Even though we opposite ways all the time. He'll come around. That's got to be typical, not exceptional. Let me just say how inspiring it is to hear both of you. Describe your desire to do exactly what Madison hoped senators listen to each other and have the country respect and a deliberate way, and thank you for giving us a week and saving the Senate, but Senator you care so deeply about the institution. What happens next, he will be corroborated or exonerated confirmed or not. The partisan passions will be strong and you're retiring, what will do you believe will be the future of the Senate after you're gone and will it? It's institutional Genesee preserved. Before I say that, let me just say, you You know. know, often hear politicians, save my friend over there before they try to get your eyes out. What I look at. Chris truly is my friend and we have traveled a lot. We both spent part of our miss spent youth in in Africa and Kenya, and east Africa and southern Africa. And we've traveled to the region that continent number of times, and we've been chased by elephants in Mozambique. We spent a very memorable four hours with one of the worst dictators, Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe. We've, we've been through a lot and that the trust that you develop. Working with each other on issues like that wildlife preservation or is the Darrow or or other issues of that's that's how compromises are possible, and there's less and less of that going on. Memorably a few years ago wanted to prove the Republicans and Democrats get along. So Martin Heinrich and I- marooned ourselves on Pacific island for a week. Discovery Channel came along and filmed it called it rivals for viral. Just gave us a machete between us and that was not really. You can get it on Amazon for two ninety. Nine still. And I think it's still aired under between episodes of naked and afraid we were neither maybe frayed. But we got back and went on David Letterman. Kobe ran a clip of us and said that flake and Heinrich of prove once and for all Republicans and Democrats can get along if death is the only option. So. Unfortunately, that's about where we are, but but we do worry about the future of the Senate. It's always been the body that the rules of the Senate bring together. It's very seldom that one party has sixty votes, and so the the filibuster rules requires. And that's what I like about the Senate. I served twelve years in the house. I'd love the people's house, but the Senate requires and pushes you together. But lately there have been so many things simply drug us apart, and I don't know how we get back. The incentives are all the other way. There are. There's no currency for bipartisanship. If you are act bipartisan, it shows up in your opponent's campaign ads, and we've got to come to a point again where the failure to to compromise. The failure to reach across the aisle, particularly in the Senate is punished the ballot box rather than rewarded. And, and I don't know how we get there, but we, we need to. Chris, if you had to name the three top causes of this polarization, what would they be? What can do to fix it? And what are you going to do after Jeff link is gone. Miss him a lot. So top causes, we don't live together. So we travel back and forth to our home states every week for Delaware. I've traveled back and forth and my home state almost every day. So I'm an exception. But for most of the Senate listening to Joe Biden, my predecessor and asking him how he and John McCain, for example, built a working friendship over decades. Everyone would come in on Monday and stay till Friday and often move their families here and often leave here for long periods of time. So you'd get to know each other as parents at a baseball game or a lacrosse game rather than just as two dimensional cutouts fighting each other on cable. I second..

"I was at a client's site last week where I had to have the client test their application in order for them to log into their application. Okay. Yeah. As soon as they, they logged in. Okay, they had to pull out their smartphone, right, and they got a verification. They had to click okay on their smartphone? Yeah. Before they could get into the application, which that's a step, that's a good thing. But on my talk about after you talk about what you're talking about. Is yours the Ubeku keys are the best way to do to factor versus your smartphone. So go ahead and finish up your story. So anyway, a security key is a useful tool. Now if that happens since potential, hackers would need both your password and that physical key itself to log into your count. Right. Google has boasted that sense. It adopted security keys. None of its employees have fallen victim to account takeovers, right? Google plans to start off ring a device. It's built the tighten security king to the public sometime in the next few months. People who have a lot to lose a lot at stake. Those are the ones who are starting to adopt our products, said errands fired. Say that make it easy for you to say? Yes, you because he's got a good solution as far as to factor goes. So. All right. So let me in the Bama campaign. Was there working with the folks at Google so that they could actually get all of our data so they could target us directly. I mean, there are working with Google to figure out who to target in two thousand twelve, and that's why they knew about these keys. Well, it wasn't the head of Google like, yeah. Big friend of. When the other campaigns do it with a Facebook, it's a, it's a huge conspiracy, but it's good that they use that technology. So high profile individuals, people on Twitter who have a lot of followers or youtuber with millions of followers. Right. So the extra security measure likely would have protected Clinton campaign manager, John Podesta's emails. It was yes, Jeff link. The regional IT director for Obama's can't Obama's campaign in two thousand eight said they did not use the security. He's at that time, right? So it didn't use them in two thousand eight, but they did use them in two thousand and twelve because it was too early errands fired originally mentioned that both Obama's campaigns used the security keys, but that the company later clarified that it did not offer the tool in two thousand and eight sounds good. So I want to bring up the next article because that is a good a good way to secure your systems. Because here this article, this is from Krebs on security. When in my favorite security bloggers, he's got an article called hang up on the mo- on mobile in the name of security. There's an entrepreneur of virtual currency fake money fake money. He's an investor who is suing AT and t. for the fact that he lost two hundred twenty four dollars real dollars that were fake out of his account. So they want to hundred twenty four million bucks for may TNT because what happened was he had something called sim swapping. So this guy, the bad guys knew he was a heavy investor in fake money in cryptocurrency, and they figured out that he had an AT and t. phone. So like Bob mentioned at the client where you get a text message or something to your phone. He had that on his account, his crypto account, so he would have to log in as as as a user and then his phone, give him a little tech saying, hey, is this you? And he'd type in the number and they'd let you in well with sim swopping. You need a bad guy on the inside at AT and t. in this case, and the bad guy was able to kill his phone and move his sin. Mm card to the bad guys phone. So as long as he had the credentials for the crypto currency account, the text message went to the bad guy. And he's suing AT and t. my point here is it's not AT and t. fall to use their phone as your second factor AT and t. is not coming out and saying via a mobile phone, so you can use it. I curate tool. I mean the the AT and t. guys that are selling you. The phones in the stores were selling sneakers a week ago. There's nothing about what selling a phone that should be necessarily connected to security..

"So depending on how crazy you wanna go with the configuration, it can be hard to look at two pieces of h from two different projects and tell their even using the same us framework, which is nice in terms of how much power and control you have, but a bit of a curse in terms of there being a lot of consistence. Crossover, I guess truth behind it all is consistent with Jimmy Johnson. Yeah. So tell one is like a CSS framework, but it's also like a CSS framework generator and like a meta with how are these confict files? Are they? Are they massive, you know, like in the sort of the beauty of it as you can do it and Java script so that you have like kind of extreme control, right? Like you're saying, if you really did want, like I know there's a color package PM that can generate do all kinds of fancy color stuff. Now you have that at your fingertips here and which is kinda neat. Yeah, so so the default configuration file is big. It's nine hundred and fifty two lines, which sounds intimidating. But when you actually look at it, it's mostly is at boilerplate. The point of that is to give you. It's like when used to give somebody a Jake where he plug in with like every single option. It's just so you know what they're totally. Yeah, I'll I'll send link you in the chat here in case you wanna look at it and people listening and maybe take a peek in there. Show notes, whatever. If we get too deep into it and they wanna follow along, but it just fired Jeff linked the defaults configuration file and you can kind of see it's broken up into a bunch of different sections based on what you're customizing. Right? Like you can specify what you're responsive to most people. Yeah, it's a bunch of colors. It's a bunch of break points. It's a bunch of fun stacks like there's nothing in here. That's intimidating only and is to kind of approach is right. You could either generate this file from like our CLI tool, and then just go in there, customize customizes much as you want or you can actually just create your own file from scratch where you import our default configuration because it's just pull them mpm. Right? So you can just like require Tennessee SSD fall configure, comes in as an object, and then you can override the parts that you want our merge in the different stuff that you want. So if there's defaults that you like or defaults where if they change, you want to get the updates and you don't want to just completely blow them out. You can sort of extend the default configuration dynamically. Instead of just replacing it to? Yeah, that's probably what I would do that seem safe. So there is a so you get configure just the way you want it and then you run it and and what you you are going to get. You know, hundreds of kilobytes of CSS though still, right? That's kind of this is pending on, got to configure. It can be megabytes of CSS or via hundreds of kilobytes I because like we not only generate all these classes like BG read or BG blue or whatever. There's variance to. So like if you only wanna change the background color on hover, he would generate versions of all those classes to have a hover in prefixed. So that in your HTML you can say, well, this should be read. So it's BG read. But on hover, I wanted to be BG red dark. So I just BG read space. Hover colon BG red dark space, focus, colon, BG, blue or active. All these different variants can exist. You have control over which ones are generated, but if you want to generate all them for. Every kind of CSS module that we haven't here all these different types of utilities, and it can be really wild in size. So yeah, which maybe leads into another interesting conversation.
