Election 2008

The Rock Video

The video is called "Mike Gravel Rock". It isn't running on TV, but it's all over the internet. It's about three minutes long. We see presidential candidate Mike Gravel in a park by a lake. He stares at the camera for a minute and eleven seconds in an extreme close-up, then turns, picks up a rock, throws it in the lake, and walks away. That's it. But what does it mean when a guy just stares at you then throws a rock in a lake and walks away? Weekend America's John Moe asks Gravel to explain. He also asks a film critic, a band and baby what they see in the clip.


This week Hilary Clinton's search for a campaign song landed on Celine Dion's "You and I." The Canadian/Las Vegas songstress could lead Clinton to victory. We ask Craig Uhlir of the Las Vegas 2nd City Improv Troupe about other musical treasures that presidential candidates might pluck from Sin City.
