it was important from 1780 to 1840 in national politic. pol it was unimportant for many forn years. virginia is important again toat both parties it's important.. both parties competed hard for f virginia and that will be thelle case going forward and i'm prour of that.wa of t >> let's talk -- we hate to harr on the election but having youco here is amazing to get into --n >> you guys are my first lifeirl interview way local station hern in d.c. .c >> love it. love it. let me ask you aboutlo this t recount evident.dent what are your thoughts on this?h >> well, you know, the clintonli team looked at the votes and looked at recount and we're nott going to pursue it, but when jill stein want one of the thiri party candidates decided to doeo it if there's going to be agoine recount we have to be at theweat table to make sure it's done doe right. that it's done fairly. fairl you know, i do think people are entitled to know that thethat t results are results that they tt can trust and that they canha count on. coun so if there's a recount, we havv to be at the table, and we are. and, you know, i think people pe are entitled to know that thetht results are fair. f
7:36 am
things during the campaign obviously, um ---- >> there were a lot of odd o things during this >> even with respect to voting.s during the summer, you know, you have the intelligence agencies e of the united states saying, sin that the government of russiaf i was trying to influence the outh come of the election especially hacking into a couple of stateol boards of elections.elect the boards of elections inardsel arizona and illinois. so if there's questions about was there some influence, it'sci important to put those to bed.. and we're very doubtl and yet it is important fortaor people to know the results are results they can trust. can trut >> i'm curious what your take is just because of the way thatau this entire campaign went, it'ss different from what lot of lot o people i think had seen inee i american politics leading up tot now. and for that reason alone it will stand out in history presidential elections.ions but when it comes to things like the recount now there are thoseo who say, look, thisw person wan elected by the democratic process.oces it should be left alone at this

7:46 am
i think he said so next year is about being good. first year is about being safe.f next year is about continuingtiu safety but being good. there's this tug of war of about do we give more money to metro so they can fix their challenge oars do we demand they fix things before we give them m more money.more mey both sides have some points, you know, of importance.ornc what we needed to see from metro in congress was a dramaticramati commitment to better managementm because frankly, it was w management that was lacking. both in the also at the board. the board was not doing a good o job of managing this system. they were managing like kind ofo a bunch of political appointeest rather than transportationation professionals.onals. the last year has seen a s significant improvement in thata and so i'm going to continue to go to bat for metro every whichi way i can but i'm also going tot do all i can with the maryland d.c. and virginia delegations tt hold them accountable on thele o management improvement.vement >> talking with virginia senatot tim kaine about local and and national issues. iue wrap it with one more election o question.
