Although Bruce Springsteen's presence is rarely felt on his website, he has occasionally addressed his fans from that forum: to defend the awful treatment of The Dixie Chicks at the hands of country, to let everyone know what songs are on the mix tape that he plays before his concerts and now, that he is endorsing Barack Obama for President. I'm glad he's making his voice heard, and hopefully there will be some kind of tour during election time.

Although the Vote For Change tour of 2004 obviously wasn't successful, when Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band along with John Fogerty, Jackson Browne and Patti Scialfa played New Jersey on that tour, it was a very powerful moment. Maybe a second time will achieve the desired result. Here's hoping.
