Bruce: Chords for Change

Bruce Springsteen has an op-ed piece in today’s NY Times and on his web site about his decision to participate in the Vote for Change Tour. An excerpt:

These questions are at the heart of this election: who we are, what we stand for, why we fight. Personally, for the last 25 years I have always stayed one step away from partisan politics. Instead, I have been partisan about a set of ideals: economic justice, civil rights, a humane foreign policy, freedom and a decent life for all of our citizens. This year, however, for many of us the stakes have risen too high to sit this election out.

Once again, the man who artistically expressed the human emotion of September 11 better than anyone nails it.

UPDATE: The fact I watch so little TV means I miss things. Via TalkLeft, I learned The Boss was on Nightline last night. There’s a partial transcript here.
