    Okay, it worked and that was TOTALLY AWESOME.

    Thank you for bird dogging these FINE vids.

    enigma4ever said...

    sorry- I was tweaking it...when I put it up about ONE hour ago- 210 views....let's take this thing far and wide- let's see how many sites we can get to post..

    ( we did this with WillIAm's "Yes We Can", and it went from 200 to Millions in mere days...it was amazing..)

    Tomorrow morning @ 10AM. That's when our text messages should hit and email drop.

    So, anyone else think it's Biden?

    I got spooked by the Chet Edwards buzz and now that it's officially not Kaine (thank goodness) or Bayh, I'm convince it's Biden.

    Plus, there was a private jet flight plan filed between Midway and Delaware and back today. The only one of its kind all day.

    D.K. Raed said...

    Lovely inspiring wonderful vid. Now let's make it happen!

    ps, Christopher, I keep thinking the text message will be 3AM ET (midnight here), just for the symbolism.

    enigma4ever said...

    DK:::
    yeah....3am...and I hope that the messege goes straight to Hillary's Phone at 3am ;-)

    Chris:::
    I have no idea at this point ..I am willing to ride the wave and see what happens..I am so releived it is not Bayh, or Kaine .....and yet I think Biden has been milking it for grins- so I don't think it is him....adn gosh aren't we lucky it is neither Edwards ....sigh....Wes ? Hagel ? Jack Reed ? Caroline Kennedy ? WHO....Gore? I keep thinking it is someone that we should be able to figure out- Someone that is older, has military experience....I don't know...

    D.K. Raed said...

    no E, I was thinking "who do you trust to answer that 3AM phone call"? AMERICA, that's who! hey it's a dumb stretch, but still, it'd be nice to know before I go to sleep tonight. and oh yeah, 3AM text mess to Hill & Bill: "a case could be made that no Clinton is ever ready to be VICE president".

    I think it's Biden, but would cream if it was Gore! Richardson might be nice, but no one's still talking about him or Warner. Kinda fun to have some surprises left in life.

    enigma4ever said...

    IF it is Gore I would need CPR- seriously....that would be a HUGE shock and somehow perfect revenge...

    ( I just thought it would be funny Hilary telling Bill to answer the phone..and the TEXT would say WHO it is )

    ....I have no idea WHO it is

    Gryphen said...

    The AP just said it was Biden.

    Gryphen said...

    CNN and ABC news just confirmed it.

    It makes sense and I am at peace with this decision.

    D.K. Raed said...

    I'm good with it too, Gryphen. Secret Service guys are surrounding Biden now, so it must be official.

    But where's my email/text? Why did he make such a big deal of doing that Saturday morning if it was going to be released tonight? Well, at least I can now go to sleep!

    enigma4ever said...

    MSNBC is saying it is Biden too...
    I was watching FOX earlier- they kept saying it was Biden- that they saw Movement ( I saw Food delvered- I don't think seeing food delivered counts as "Movement"...but whatever..)

    I don't know what to think...but if it is I can live with that,,,,more than Bayh, or Kaine...for sure.. or Hill.....

    I guess we will see what happens next...

    enigma4ever said...

    2:47am..
    now I am kinda hoping my phone rings at 3am...it would be funny now...

    or maybe the messege should just go through to Certain Phones...."It's NOT you"...or "Gotcha- it ain't Joe B".....that would be funny...sorry I am tired..it is still 80 degrees here...( atleast in my house...)
    Okay....

    So EVERYBODY is saying it is Biden...AP, Huggpo, LA Times...you know what is weird ? the DNC did not send an announcment- and yet they suposedly leaked it...

    enigma4ever said...

    OMG....
    so at 3am yup the Text messege did come through...and it is indeed Biden...

    ( someone does indeed have a huge sense of Humor...)

    D.K. Raed said...

    I just saw that on CNN, now it's official, the text message was sent apprx 3 AM E.T.

    Perfect! I had a hunch. Maybe I can sleep now.

    enigma4ever said...

    yup...it came at 3am- I tried to send it to my email , so that I could copy and post- but I am too not techy at 3am ;-)

    But you know 6-6 and I laughed our heads off....it's ALL good...and NOT hillary, not Bayh,and not Kaine...it's gonna be okay...

    Christopher said...

    Splendid!

    What splendid news to wake up to!

    Now I can go back to bed and sleep a few more hours.

    enigma4ever said...

    Now you can go back to sleep ....I will be liveblogging the rally....well....cuz...

    sleep tight...

    Mariamariacuchita said...

    Obama has his attack dog now so he will not have to go negative in the way he is always speaking out against.

    Biden is very smart and cannot be dismissed so easily.

    I FREAKING LOVE that song...have already sent the URL to friends...gonna post it on my site with HT to you.

    Christopher said...

    OBAMA/BIDEN 08

    This is a ticket I wholeheartedly support and I have a list of Biden on the issues up if you want to grab it.

    Biden will be a great compliment to Obama and best of all, I'm sure he knows how many houses he owns (1.)

    Gryphen said...

    I think the Obama/Biden ticket is a sure winner,

    My only small complaint is that after all of that buildup there really was little doubt that is was going to be Biden. I mean EVERY single media outlet seemed pretty convinced that it would be him, and it was him.

    NOw if it had been Al Gore THAT would have been a huge payoff to justify all of the manufactured suspense.

    But that is just nitpicking and I am very happy that Senator Joe is our future Vice President. Just so long as he does not have a love child out there someplace.

    enigma4ever said...

    Maria maria:::
    yeah....it is a great song...I was trying to post it last night....and gryphen sent it to me..so we kinda founf it at the same time....BUT it is a great song...GREAT.....

    Christopher:::
    I will definently come see that list..yup.....and I think he does indeed know how many houses he has...


    Gryphen:::yeah...
    you can nitpick...but I know that you are relieved...and you know what watching the MSM run into each other at all the staked out houses and the 3am messege- I am sorry- but I loved it...it made look forward to Something and it made me laugh and a little mystery is fine with me( as long as their are no love children or monica's out there- ya know???)

    Human said...

    Such a cool video. Just last night I saw Last King of Scotland starring Forrest Whittaker. One of my favorite actors.
    Peace.

    enigma4ever said...

    Thanks Human:::
    there is a Waiting list at the Library to see that movie but ever since Good Morning Vietnam I have been a HUGE fan of his...( my son said Wow he can sing....we both laughed...) I loved seeing Whoopi too....

    HelenWheels said...

    Great video, very inspiring, indeed, hope it goes UBER-VIRAL!!

    I didn't get my email message!! Oh well... I was sleeping anyway. How do you people stay up that late? I conk out by 10 pm

    I love Forest Whitaker and The Last King Of Scotland is a great movie, I've seen it twice.

    I was happy to see Biden picked because he doesn't take any shit. I don't know a whole lot about him, but he sure helped make the early debates watchable. So, there's that.

    I do see lots of liberals upset and have to wonder what they have to gain at this point by not supporting them both? They can whine all they want but it's either McLame or Obama. Sheesh!

    an average patriot said...

    I forget where I watched that yesterday but it is a great song and video! I hope it gets a wide audience. Isn't it something when it all comes to a song and a prayer?

    enigma4ever said...

    3PM RALLY IS ABOUT TO START.....U2 IS BEING PLAYED THE CROWDS ARE MASSIVE....SO MANY PEOPLE....THOUSANDS WRAPPED AROUND THE BUILDING...OBAMA LOOKS SO HAPPY....AND RELAXED....MICHELLE IS WITH DICK DURBIN OFF TO THE SIDE....( SHE LOOKS SO LOVELY IN PURPLE)...

    19 Monthes ago on a cold Feb day right here I stood before you to announce my candidacy for the US....( He looks good, rested, happy....) Finally the Audio is better...( I would like to see McMansion get this kind of crowd- HAH!!!)

    enigma4ever said...

    ( hey patriot- yeah it is a great song- let's make it Viral- post it and share it , cuz it say alot)


    ***********************
    That Man is Joe Biden is that rare mix, he has brought Change, but DC has not changed him....etc etc...He sounds great- good and strong....( would love to see the aerials of this rally, I think it huge, people started lining up at 6 am...)

    enigma4ever said...

    He is telling Biden's Story....all of it...and he is speaking strongly...and telling all of his accomplishments...and hard work...

    enigma4ever said...

    And Now Biden enteres the stage- with THE RISING playing..( yeah the Boss...that 's good)....

    ANd they actually look good together....Biden looks good relaxed...and very calm, smiling....BIG warm crowd welcome....IN THE LAND OF LINCOLN....

    and now he quoting Lincoln...."Put your feet in the right place and stand Firm"....he sounds good....( it looks really really hot)...."Sharing the American Story"
    NOW he is telling Obama's Story ( ahhhh , this is good, I hope McMansion is sitting at ONE of his homes shitting...)

    THIS will work...Biden ain't shy or softspoken ;-)

    This is OUR Story about getting up....you can make it....THESE are NO Ordinary Times...that American Dreams under 8 years of Bush is slipping away- the crowd is yelling back...good...he has got them listening....( This is much better than his speechs last summer).....We can not as a Nation stand 4 MORE years OF THIS...( he is definently fired up and ready to go ;-)

    enigma4ever said...

    Ahhhh Beautiful Day is playing...and the Ladies have arrived ( they both look beautiful)....( wow HUGE flag on building in the background...)

    Biden pulled NO punches about the McCain Bush connections...( McMansion will need to change his depends...that rocked...)

    enigma4ever said...

    Only in America is playing they are working the crowds...they look good together...( this is the most security I have seen)....

    ( hey I just realized this is the first rally that song that we all hated got dropped- finally....phew..Gryphen- you know the one I mean- I can not remember the name of it..)

    enigma4ever said...

    ( oh 6-6 remembered "signed,sealed and delivered" gosh I hated that song ...it sends the wrong messege)

    enigma4ever said...

    ( okay just for giggles and grins- FOX is saying hat MCCain Should be worried that Biden is on deck- that He has way more experience than McMansion....hahaha....and they look sweaty....ah that's too bad..and geee Rove is not on deck-)

    Oh dear David Gregory is spewing on MSNBC....I wish he would just shut up...what an idiot....

    ( hmm, Barnicle, Fineman and Harold Ford are the comentators....no Pat Buchanon at all ????wow..times are a changing folks)....

    HelenWheels said...

    I bet McLame crapped his depends, alright. That was one DETERMINED speech by Biden. Good to have a strong-sounding VP. Can you imagine - OK, just got the giggles, BAAAD - if McLame chooses the milketoast LIEbermann to go up against the forceful Biden? O.M.G.

    I think McLame will have to pick (puke) Romney if he wants any appearance of "youth" but then of course, Romney's 10 yachts or mansions will be in the news!! McLame doesn't have a whole lot of choices and it's chess time!

    It's good to see someone slam the HELL out of the shrub and McLame. Felt good. Thanks for the head's up on the rally. I wouldnt' have watched, otherwise!

    :)

    enigma4ever said...

    Ahhh Helen -
    McMansion is indeed picking Willard....oye...( scroll down - it leaked out the other night...)

    so yeah- the two rich spoiled rotten rich guys are going to try to run and prove they are the common people ticket..

    Fran said...

    Wow indeed ! Fantastic video.

    I'm not that thrilled w Biden, but I'll keep an open mind. I guess I feel like all sitting Congressional Dems have the blood on their hands of NOT pushing for impeachment or using the power of the purse to stop the wars.

    That being said- I sure as hell would not be voting for McSenile & whatever rethug Veep he chooses.

    I'm just sayin' I'm not totally mesmerized by the dems especially after they had the majority in both the house & congress since 2006.

    Ingrid said...

    I'm with Fran but I'm an Independent politically anyway. Until people decide that they truly want to improve politics by getting rid of the two party system..it's either one or the other.. at least on the federal level..

    Christopher said...

    I recently saw the video of Karl Rove at the Washington Correspondents Dinner.

    "MC" Rove was doing his racist best to approximate what he thought was an African American rapper.

    Guess who was on-stage with him?

    David Gregory. I had no idea Gregory and Rove were so close. That was the last straw for me with David Gregory. The fucktard.

    HelenWheels said...

    David Gregory has become a fucktard.

    enigma4ever said...

    Helen::
    once again so wise ;-)

    Chris:::
    Didn;t you see that before ????omg....talk about a moment suffering from lack of total dignity....and dancing with the devil...urughhhgghhg...must find TUMS....

    Ingrid ::
    ahhh I wish that would happen...but if you mention it to people and ONE word comes to mind that totally ends the Conversation on that Issue:
    NADAR......sigh...

    Fran:::
    is he "progressive " enough - ah no....BUT he is not a whimp- and he can get down and brawl with McCoot anytime ....he has balls ( I have watched alot of hearing where he gave people hell...)...

    And he does have foreign experience and is respected abroad....is he good enough...yeah...I think so...and just glad that it is not edwards...or hill or bayh or kaine....sigh...

    Hang in there..and yeah- it really is a good video....yeah...

    enigma4ever said...

    Olympic Update....

    Just watched the Marathon-so exciting...a Kenyan guy won- first Gold medal...and WR....excellent to watch...looks hot as hell...

    Christopher said...

    Enigma,

    Truth be told, I had seen part of the "MC" Rove clip, but I guess I looked away in disgust, so I missed seeing David Gregory before now.

    I said to Jim, "Look at this, that's MSNBC's David Gregory up there with Rove."

    Jim said, "What an idiot."

    Why haven't any of his colleagues, including Keith, asked him about this?

    enigma4ever said...

    at the time- Keith did not- I think it was over a year ago- the Correspondents Dinner ( I think Karl still was working for Bush- well at the WH)....and Tweety and Joe Scarborough were the only ones that teased him...

    and then it was in a Oddball segement on Keith- and he said nothing- but yes, it was seen...

    now where are my TUMS....urgh..
