trippi2Democratic strategist and political analyst Joe Trippi sat in with Brian and talked about the possible 2016 presidential candidates.

Joe explained that by announcing first Senator Ted Cruz put himself front and center and will get all the attention until around Easter when others start to announce. He also believes that Cruz had to come out first because he is kind of behind the others because he hasn't run for president yet and doesn't have they system to raise money yet. Joe also believes that he did a good job in his announcement and spoke very well to his core. Joe then explained that it is better to start at the bottom because you don't have a target on your back yet.

On the Democratic side he doesn't think that you should come out attacking Hillary because people don't know anyone's name yet and this will leave a bad taste. He feels that Hillary is the favorite but she will be challenged.
