Obama and Springsteen

An estimated 80,000 people turned out in Cleveland for a rally for Barack Obama with Bruce Springsteen performing.

The Boss played an acoustic set including “This Land is Your Land,” with many singing along.

“So I don’t know about you, but I want my country back, I want my dream back, I want my America back,” Springsteen said.

“Our social contract has been shredded. We’re going to need all the angels we can get,” he said, praising “Senator Obama’s efforts to build a house big enough for all our dreams.”

Obama said “a handful of people who enter into your lives through their music and tell the American people’s story. Bruce Springsteen is one of those people.”
