Vice President

I received my Barack email about his VP choice at 9:37 a.m. ET.

Friend —

I have some important news that I want to make official.

I’ve chosen Joe Biden to be my running mate.

Joe and I will appear for the first time as running mates this afternoon in Springfield, Illinois — the same place this campaign began more than 19 months ago.

I’m excited about hitting the campaign trail with Joe, but the two of us can’t do this alone. We need your help to keep building this movement for change.

Please let Joe know that you’re glad he’s part of our team. Share your personal welcome note and we’ll make sure he gets it:

Thanks for your support,


It was about eight hours late than my first news alert

But the second email I got from the Obama campaign was quite as fast as Usain Bolt. They asked me to donate for the newly minted Democratic team. For $15, I get the first edition Obama-Biden car magnet.

Oh, how about a round of applause? Yeah, standing ovation? Ooh, oh yeah!

The above line incidentally is from Rihanna’s hit Take a Bow.

I think I would stick to my first choice and go for the Paris-Rihanna tandem.

6:55 a.m.

Race to the pink house

I had a gooood laugh for my lunch today.

Paris Hilton is hot. Both as a celebrity and as an endorsed presidential bet.

Paint the White House pink? Wow! Real coooool white-haired dude!

If she were to crush Barack Obama and John McCain this November, she could be the second president to paint a presidential palace pink. The first was in Argentina where the old presidential residence is called the Pink House or Casa Rosada.

Here’s the picture I took of the pink palace from my cell phone at the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires.

Evita Peron and Madonna were among the famous celebrities like Paris seen at the historic balcony of this most photographed building in Argentina.

If Bayani Fernando were to have his “Marikina Way” and wrest control of Manila’s Malacanang Palace in the 2010 elections, he could be the 3rd president to paint a presidential office pink.

Good enough for the bronze!

As a brown American, I would vote for Paris for her wit and common sense like her energy policy and choice of VP.

Yup, Rihanna is what Paris needs to cover her Pink House in Washington DC under an umbrella!

Ha ha ha!
