It was an unlikely duo, Vice President Joe Biden and rocker Jimmy Buffett, on the same stage. Both fighting for the same cause, getting Hillary Clinton elected President of the United States.

In a quick, but fiery speech Biden urged undecided voters to rethink a vote for Donald Trump.

“We are in a position where God knows this is the last thing we need. This is not your father’s Republican party this is a no nothing party.”

Biden talked about how America is now viewed around the world with Trump as a presidential candidate.  He mentioned how even leaders overseas are worried about a Trump/Pence win.

“There is not a meeting I leave with the head of state, with the exception of Vladimir Putin where someone doesn't ask me, is it possible to elect Trump?” Biden said. “One word defines us possibilities. Nothing is impossible in this country. This country never bends, it never bows, it never yields. It overcomes. We own the finish line, so go out and vote your destiny depends on it.”

Buffett played for about 30 minutes and changed some of his lyrics to fit the political atmosphere. He told the crowd he early voted for Clinton and tomorrow at the polls they should do the same.
