This is a video that everyone should watch, either to lift up your spirits and make you feel better or if not, maybe it'll just make you a better person for having seen it.

A classic response, two months after leaving hospital for being shot in an assassination attempt.

Hard for me to believe that the current resident in the White House could do nearly as well. Evidently, he's even afraid of a little rain in France.

Need a lift? This video mash-up might be just the ticket!
