>>> on perry versus jerry today. earlier this week i told you about the tusel between the governors of our two biggest states, texas and california . rick perry began running a radio ad out in california trying to lure business owners to texas and jerry brown was unmoved by the five-figure ad buy or as he put it --
>> it's not a burden of proof . it's fairly a fart.
>> thank you.
>> anyway, turns out perry isn't just sticking to the airwaves. next week he will be showing up himself in california . cities like san francisco and los angeles to keep up the move to texas gimmick. anyway, a cartoonist for the sacramento bee is out with a pretend pitch. from perry , we got three advantages over california . first, we got your low tacks. second, we got your low wages, and i can't remember the third. to which the other guy 1307nds the wide open spaces in your head. anyway, next, it's no secret that chris christie and newark mayor cory booker aren't exactly best friends. i didn't know that. christie kicked off the week joking about his weight with david letterman . soon after he was telling a former white house physician to shut up for expressing concern over his health and his weight. anyway, guess what the project -- project booker just announced yesterday? his new partnership with weight watchers to help combat obesity up in newark. well, surely this one was in the works for a while but strange about the talk and the timing.
>>> by the way, it seems like christie is still in attack mode over the comments from that physician. yesterday dr. the doctor recounted the phone call she got from the governor.
>> it was essentially the tone of the press conference but louder.
>> pretty much yelled the whole time.
>> uh-huh. if this is the way you handle stress, is this presidential? have to think about that. is this a presidential way to behave? come on.
>> there's a political commentary from the doctor. apparently calling her a hack at the press conference was not enough.
>>> finally bill clinton is ready to start campaigning again. big surprise. he spoke to house democrats at their retreat earlier today and told them he was all in to support them in upcoming midterm elections even though the 2010 go-around was rough.
>> i went through both the last two election cycles. i did 133 events in 2010 . i told hillary somewhere in the process of it that shall i said, you know, we're going to take a terrible licking and she said why do you keep agreeing to do more events? i said i don't want it on my conscious. i did this in '94 and i never want to live through it again without knowing that oat least i got mowed down, not that i, you know, took a pass.
>> anyway, for him it was a terrible licking of course. bubba doesn't want to be far from the campaign trail in the last election. think about it. he's campaigning in 2014 for the democrats because he's looking forward to 2016 and hillary clinton as the presidential candidate np.
>>> up next, gun safety . there's new reason to be optimistic that some kind of deal can get done on expanded background checks at least for gun sales, and that's ahead and that's looking good. you're
