Dylan Backs Obama

BOB DYLAN has offered his support to U.S. presidential wannabe BARRACK OBAMA in an interview with a London newspaper.
The folk rock icon tells The Times he has become disillusioned about the state of America and feels Obama offers the country hope.
Dylan states, "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."
Dylan isn't the only musical heavyweight supporting the Democrat - Bruce Springsteen, will.i.am and Stevie Wonder have also offered the Senator their support.

Great to hear this from Bob. I thought so too and hearing it from this guy confirms my belief. It's good of him to speak out at a crucial time.
