Big Band Login

Greetings ~ I am new to rancid, so please forgive the question.  I
have successfully installed rancid and am attempting to use it to
login to a Big Band CMTS.  The auth to the CLI requires the command
"enable username" followed by password.  The issue seems to be the
space between enable and username.  I have tried putting enable root
in "  "  and  '   ' without any success.  My clogin config follows and
the results from the login attempt.
Thanks in advance...
