Tangled Up in Blue states

Posted by dancehallhips on June 6, 2008

In case, for some reason, celebrity endorsements still (or ever) mattered, Bob Dylan has officially announced his endorsement of Barack Obama:

“Well, you know right now America is in a state of upheaval. Poverty is demoralising. You can’t expect people to have the virtue of purity when they are poor. But we’ve got this guy out there now who is redefining the nature of politics from the ground up…Barack Obama. He’s redefining what a politician is, so we’ll have to see how things play out. Am I hopeful? Yes, I’m hopeful that things might change. Some things are going to have to.”

-Bob Dylan, in London’s The Times

Though Obama has already racked up a lot of musicial support (Colin Meloy, Jeff Tweety, Bruce Springsteen, etc), as well as the nomination, it’s still neat to see a new voice for change be supported by “the voice of a generation.”

If you haven’t already, register to vote, if you’re in to that sort of thing.
