2016 Contenders: Senator Rick Santorum

A few of the questions and answers you didn't get to hear on the show--

Twitter Conversations Around Midterm Elections

We sat down with Adam Sharp, Head of Twitter News, Government and Elections, to discuss some of the key issues voters across the United States are talking about ahead of Tuesday's  midterms. What is the number one thing people are talking about in regards to politics and this election? President Obama-- and we will see if that makes a difference when voters head to the polls.

 

 

Race for 2016: The Biden Factor

FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES OF VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SAY THEY ARE ALL BUT CERTAIN HE WON'T RUN AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON IF SHE DOES IN FACT DECIDE TO RUN IN 2016. 
 
POLLS SHOW THE FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE AS THE CLEAR FRONTRUNNER ON THE ROAD TO THE 2016 DEMOCRATIC NOMINATION, BUT PARTY ANGST ABOUT THE CLINTON JUGGERNAUT COULD PAVE THE WAY FOR AN ENTIRE FIELD OF ALTERNATES --INCLUDING MASSACHUSETTES SENATOR ELIZABETH WARREN, MARYLAND GOVERNOR MARTIN O'MALLEY, NEW YORK GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO, AND VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN. 
 
TRADITIONALLY IN AMERICAN POLITICS IF THE PRESIDENT IS NOT RUNNING AND THE VICE PRESIDENT WANTS THE PARTY NOMINATION IT IS HIS FOR THE TAKING. FORMER VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY OPTED NOT TO RUN IN 2008 BUT STILL REMAINS A KEY FIGURE IN THE POLITICAL ARENA. 
 
AT SEVENTY ONE, BIDEN IS FIVE YEARS OLDER THAN HILLARY. HE HAS ALSO RUN FOR PRESIDENT TWICE BEFORE, FIRST IN 1988 WHEN HE DROPPED OUT FOLLOWING PLAGIARISM ALLEGATIONS AND AGAIN IN 2008 WHEN DESPITE NOTABLE ENDORESMENTS HE WITHDREW FROM THE RACE AFTER CAPTURING LESS THAN 1% OF THE VOTE IN THE IOWA CAUCUSES.  
 
A BIDEN RUN MAY NOT BE APPEALING ON THE LEFT--ANXIOUS TO BREAK ANOTHER BARRIER.

Mitt Romney in 2016?

Even though Mitt Romney has said he has no plans to venture into the 2016 presidential race, ardent supporters still feel he is the person who should occupy the White House.  But Romney appears to be a reluctant draftee, telling Fox News last month "no thanks... I'm not running."  Romney is not completely out of campaign-mode, however, appearing last week with New Hampshire senatorial candidate Scott Brown.  A recent Quinnipiac poll listed Barack Obama as the worst president since WWII and 45% of respondents think the country would be better off if Romney had been elected president in 2012.  Chief Political Correspondent Carl Cameron reports from Washington tonight for Special Report on the push for Mitt to run again.  

Do you think Mitt Romney should run again in 2016?

Official Portrait Unveiling

President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama welcomed former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush to the White House this afternoon for the official unveiling of the Bush's portrait. A few jokes were exchanged and both families shared memories of living in the White House and raising their daughters.

Mitt Romney-- too wealthy?

Governor Mitt Romney doesn't think it's odd that most Americans say they do not know that much about him. In fact-he jokes we might know more than we want to by the time this race is over. The former Massachusetts governor also mentions that he doesn't think his wealth will affect how ordinary Americans relate to him and his family.

 

"This is not a nation that divides people based upon whether they've been successful or not. We don't say, 'oh, boy, this person won the lottery and therefore they can't understand me,'" Romney told Fox News. "We instead look at people and celebrate their success and their achievement and we look for people who have the skills we think will make our lives better."

So we want to know..what do you think? Do you relate with Governor Romney and his family? Does his wealth affect how you view him?

You can catch more of Bill Hemmer's interview with Mitt and Ann Romney tonight on Special Report!
