Bruce Springsteen Lays His Obama Marker Down

October 6, 2008

Lots to do today in what we laughingly call the real world (last 3,000 words of my Newton book due at my publisher now, yesterday, sooner than that, and going out this aft.), so light/no blogging for a bit.  But I couldn’t let my morning coffee pass w/o sharing this magnificent piece of video from the Vote For Change Rally in Philadelphia over the weekend.

As the Boss says, it’s time for us to roll up our sleeves and prove that the American promise means something in these, our days.

Update: Make me feel old quote of the week from the Philadelphia Inquirer’s coverage of the event:

Cindy Warkow, 46, of Dresher, sold her three daughters on the event by holding out hope of an Obama surprise. “They’re like, ‘Who’s Springsteen?'”
