Presidential hopefuls are setting the ground game seeking political activist to help them win the nation’s first presidential primary and boost their political campaign.

The State (Via Hugh Hewitt): Biden charms local GOP

It was unlike most Columbia Rotary Club luncheons.

The speaker was U.S. Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, a likely candidate for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

The chief topic: the Iraq war.

The audience: predominantly Republican.

Biden humorously took note of that in his opening remarks.

“I want to thank you all for allowing me a trip here to speak to only Republicans. It’s like my hometown. I just won every district in my state except the one I live in,” he quipped.

The crowd howled.

The senator then pounced on a member’s announcement that the club would hold its annual Christmas party at the state Department of Archives and History where members could view the original copy of the state’s Articles of Secession.

Biden asked, “Where else could I go to a Rotary Club where (for a) Christmas party the highlight is looking at the Articles?”

Biden was on a roll.

Delaware, he noted, was a “slave state that fought beside the North. That’s only because we couldn’t figure out how to get to the South. There were a couple of states in the way.”

The crowd loved it.

Joe! Joe! Joe. What are we going to do with you?

As Hillary, Barrack and John Edwards begin organizing in Iowa and New Hampshire among the Democrat faithful, Joe Biden is campaigning before Republicans in South Carolina.

Is this why everyone refers to you as SLOW JOE?

The first question after the speech was direct.

“Senator, will you please do me a favor and run for president?” pleaded Debbie Yoho with the Greater Columbia Literacy Council.

The Rotary discourages discussion of politics at its meetings.

Contacted later, Yoho said she was “blown away” by Biden’s speech. “I think he is the man of the hour. … He’s mesmerizing.”

Wrong crowd, Senator. First, you gotta win the Demcorat primary election.

Democratic Senator Joe Biden listens to testimony on on Iran’s nuclear ambitons during a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing in September 2006 in Washington. Biden, who is expected to be the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when Democrats take over the chamber next year, said he favored a variation of the ‘Go Home’ pullout option.

One of the reasons why Senator Biden receives his nickname is not because he is NOT bright or is SLOW but he does the damnest things – like plagiarisng his speeches from a British politician.

Sorry Joe, you ain’t gonna win the DEMOCRAT primary in South Carolina or in any state.

Stay tuned…….
