>> it is. he still hasn't proven that he can. frankly even this debt deal that he did lost three republican members. you can't do that and pass a budget because most likely he's only going to be able to pass it to start with, with republicans. so he has a tough job because he hasn't proven he can yet. this is a very diverse conference. more diverse than people think on the issues, number one. number two, they don't know each other yet. we were talking about this in the green room . 40% of the congress are within the last two years. they've just come in. they don't even know each other in the same party.
