Bruce Springsteen is traveling on Air Force One with President Obama
today, performing at three rallies starting with an event this morning
in Madison, Wis. Springsteen already has spent two other days on the
campaign trail for Obama, who has coopted one of the Boss’ songs, “We
Take Care of Our Own,” as a campaign anthem.
Obama said at the Madison rally, “I can’t thank him
enough for everything that he’s done for this campaign. “He is an American
treasure. He gets embarrassed when you talk about him that way. But
he tells the story of what our country is, and what it should be, and what it
can be. And I get to fly around with him on the last day that I will ever
campaign — so that’s not a bad way to end things.”
This is Springsteen’s first trip on Air Force One, he told pool reporters.
