Set List for the Inaugural Ball -- Predictions

As widely reported in various venues, the boys, or some of them at least, will be playing the Obama inaugural ball tomorrow night.

By suggestion: what should they play? what WILL they play?

Bobby & Phil in tuxes?

Egads, say it ain't so! Bobby and Phil in tuxes? I could have understood if they were psychedelic but the cognitive dissonance was too much.

Biden??? Have to say

Have to say I think you're quite wrong about Biden, Patdro. Would be curious where you got this information.

"Biden's campaign issues focused on withdrawal from Vietnam, the environment, civil rights, mass transit, more equitable taxation, health care, the public's dissatisfaction with politics-as-usual, and "change"

just a brief segment from Wikipedia bout Biden's senatorial campaign in 1972.

JOE BIDEN

Didnt know that about vice president Biden. I was wondering if anyone has any or knows if theres any film coverage on the ball dance? So I guess we can rule out marajuana being legal in all 50 states.

Thomas Jefferson signed his name on a piece of marajuana!!!!!

Joe Biden speaks during a dead show makes me sick

Joe Biden invented the position of the drug czar and declared war on many of us posting on this site and whose support for the Grateful Dead and spinoffs made them significant at all. He stands for a great many things we all don't like. The only position, I know of, required by law to lie to the public. Makes me sick to see him listed on a setlist. I know we are all swept away by Obama mania, I too am excited, but this guy sitting at his side is the democrats version of evil Cheney. I hope he is completely marginalized. The inventor of the Drug Czar position was given a forum during a Dead show, makes me sick.
