...two Monmouth County Democrats are expected to get a prime slot on Thursday, when Barack Obama accepts his party’s presidential nomination. Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi will be the opening acts for Obama’s concert.
The reason I say it's good to be king is this was how Barack Obama answered a question to People Magazine back in February (after our Primary):
WHO WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO MEET?
Bruce Springsteen. He strikes me as a good person.
Let's see, he told his elementary school teachers he'd run for President, and now the one person he'd most like to meet has agreed to perform at his nomination ceremony. I'd say he's having an okay year ;)
I wonder if the Shulman campaign could get the Boss to do a show for them. That would definitely raise the profile of the race.
