Clark! and Dylan!

General Wesley Clark has endorsed Obama in a call for unity. He made the announcement on his mailing list, and you can read the text of the endorsement here. He's my top pick for VP, or at least something in the Obama administration.

And Bob Dylan has stated his support for Obama in this article which quotes from an interview with the Times in London. Also, according to the article, Dylan has never endorsed a candidate before. Here's a quote:
"Well, you know right now America is in a state of upheaval.

"Poverty is demoralizing," he said. "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, 67, reportedly shook hands with his interviewer and as he walked out the door, added, "You should always take the best from the past, leave the worst back there and go forward into the future."

Ingrid said...

aah.. well here I am, nice to meet you Blueberry (Violet perhaps??[g])

I live in SW Austin, in the Oakhill area before the Y off William Cannon. Did you read about Fran's idea for a big music concert to raise funds for Obama? I think Austin is the perfect place for doing either a huge concert or a series of concerts like a pub crawl kinda thing where people would donate money. At the same time, O-supporters could register people as voters or have soap box debates or some other, fun extra activity to draw people in. I think had a recent event where they compared McCain to Bush and put their issues side by side. Who knows if we can team up with them as well..
BUT.. I'm totally brainstorming here..
hope all is well and the allergies are not messing with you too much (speaking of which, where's my sudafed!)

nice to meet you again and thanks E for introducing us..
