    Like his sense of humor... we could use more politicians like that. Of course I learned nothing about his platform from the ad so I wouldn't vote for him based on it.

    Looks a lot like a Sand Tiger, which is what we see here all the time. Although I've never seen one with a nose quite that curled up before. Maybe someone else knows for sure, but those spots towards the rear, dorsal fins, wide battleship body, large overall size, somewhat pointed nose, and outside jagged rows of teeth look very familiar to me. I've seen them way up close and have some great pictures!

    At the end they show a shark near him opening it's mouth, is that photoshop?

    He must be in the tank in Denver. I already voted for him (absentee), though not based on this ad.

    Best scuba diving in a political campaign since Senator Goldwater snubbed some reporters by sitting on the bottom of his pool during the 1964 Presidential campaign.

    I wouldn't vote for him because he's ridiculously overweighted!

    Clever but vacuous. I wonder how much it cost to stick him in the tank. I'll bet it wasn't cheap.

    Bill51 - Love the Franklin quote, btw!

    It's better than the endless stream of 'My opponent is a scum sucking pervert who does strange things involving trapezes and Armenian midgets while having tea with terrorists'

    That is all we get here. At least this has a laugh in it. Not that it said anything about what he stand for. But then again neither does the "My opponent ----"
    ads.

    It's too bad more elected officials don't take the same stand and "just say no" to pac's and other special interest contributors. Political circles are awash with companies paying electees for "consulting" AKA voting their way. Bribery is legal in america.

    I'd vote for him!

    Would have been more effective with a full face mask, then you might be able to understand him, and hear is labored breathing when the sharks came closer! ;-)

    LOL... I would hope no one would vote for --or against-- anybody because of a TV ad. I think civic duty to be informed about a candidate goes a bit further than watching the TV ads... that would be pretty sad.

    I've had old laides tell me which candidate they were voting for....."because he's an nice looking man"! LOL

    That said, I'd be more impressed if he was hovering motionless, in proper trim. Might even be persuaded to contribute to his campaign. :)

    I wouldn't vote for him...based on the fact that he was standing on the bottom.

    His breathing seemed a little short & quick?

    ** Moderator's Note **

    Ok, here's the deal. We can talk about the video all we want, but we can't talk politics.

    Let's enjoy talking about this video without degenerating into political discussion, and prevent the potential of thread editing, deleting or closing.

    Thanks!!!
