I will post a photo of the vine soon. BTY the vine does not produce any flowers. a note... we had a flood 2 years ago and the creek over spilled its bank and I believe the flood carried the seeds of this vine infestation.
Without pictures we could play guessing games all day. The fact that it doesn't flower and you suspect it came following a flooding incident might be a good clue, though. There are several invasives that can arrive that way including Japanese Hops, Chinese Yam/ Cinnamon Vine and Oriental Bittersweet.

Your broadleaf vine is the morning glory as identified early in this thread.

The second weed isn't exactly a vine, I don't know the name of the stuff, but I call it sticky weed. It isn't nearly as overwhelmingly invasive as the morning glory. Sticky weed is annoying but controlable. Morning glory is 100X uncontrolably worse than sticky weed.

Normally just seeing the broadleaf I would agree with Azoria but you mention that it doesn't seem to bloom and the leaf was not a perfect match. Another equally as miserable vine with similar leaves to your picture and such tiny flowers as to not be noticeable is called Wild Buckwheat or Black Bindweed. The Latin name is Polygonum convolvulus and you can see the slight differences in the following: vine weeds -or- Polygonum convolvulus page

The common name for the second one is Sticky Weed and some call it Catchweed.... both because of it's sticky hairs that act just like Velcro. LOL Azoria was more or less two for two without kn owing it. It is easily raked or hoed out of the ground but you should try and hand pull as much as you can before it blooms so it doesn't reseed again. Wear gloves because the sap can be very irritating.
