Following on the heels of the humiliating half-full arena with thousands of empty seats he shared yesterday in Cleveland with Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden this evening made his final 2010 campaign appearance in his home state of Delaware to a paltry crowd of 200.
The AP reported on the rally:
Biden headlined a Democratic rally in downtown Wilmington on Monday evening that drew about 200 people.
In contrast, the Delaware News Journal reported that Republican Senate nominee Christine O'Donnell headlined a Tea Party Express rally also in Wilmington on Halloween that drew 1,000 people--five times the number Biden attracted the next day--in part on speculation that Sarah Palin would show
... there was hope among the 1,000 or so in attendance that the former GOP vice presidential nominee would show.
That's right, in Joe Biden's home state, a mere rumor of an appearance by Sarah Palin helping Christine O'Donnell drew five times as many Delawareans as did the sitting local hero vice president. Now that's an enthusiasm gap!
Good Lord! That is a pitiful amount of people
That’s the great thing about those smaller venues,
your chances of winning the door prize are much
better........they do give out prizes for going
From AP? What was their reporting on crowd size comparison between Beck vs. Steward rallies?
Yeah, I thought so.
Christine just mentioned the differing crowd numbers in her favor on Greta. With a smile.

Well, there was a raffle. First prize was getting a photo taken with Joe Biden--and second prize was getting two photos taken with Joe Biden.
FOr his sake...she better lose by a large margin. If its close...this rests on his shoulders...
