I Preferred the Olivier, and Branagh, and the Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Versions

It is interesting how Shakespeare on the screen has changed over the past 60 years
I am sick to death of Joe Biden's "Hamlet" act about running for President.

Thankfully, this play's run has finally ended:
Vice President Biden on Wednesday announced he is not running for president in 2016, forgoing a primary battle against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and likely signaling an end to a political career that has spanned four decades.

Ending months of speculation about his plans, Biden said he could not see a path forward for his candidacy. The window of opportunity, he declared, “has closed.”

“Unfortunately, I believe we’re out of time — the time necessary to mount a winning campaign for the nomination.”

The 72-year-old vice president made the announcement from the White House Rose Garden with his wife, Jill, and President Obama at his side.
I understand that this is an emotionally fraught decision, coming less than 6 months after the death of his son, but the general media freak-out over this has really gotten old.

I am so glad that we won't have to be hearing pundits speculate over this crap any more.
