Steve Gruber: Moe Welcome to the program.

Moe Vela: Thank you Steve and good morning. I apologize to you and your listeners if there is background noise. I am at the Boston airport

Steve Gruber: Well that's okay. Is it snowing

Moe Vela: It is snowing. It is actually quite beautiful to watch the trucks running around, trying to clear the runway and get the tarmac ready

Steve Gruber: Well there ya go we will do our best here. No big deal. Let's talk about your former boss, the guy you used to work for, Joe Biden. Still leading in the polls nationally, not doing well in Iowa or New Hampshire. Says "that doesn't matter". Coming through as a more moderate voice through in a year that has produced, I think its fair to say some very left wing Ideas. That aren't selling well in places like Iowa and New Hampshire. I would think that the Vice President, former Vice President, would do well there. But he is lagging behind, Whats going on?
