"The Boss," Bill Clinton rock Parma for Obama
In the pantheon of campaign surrogates for the Obama-Biden campaign, few can claim more star power than former president Bill Clinton.
But, Thursday in Parma, a Cleveland suburb, the 42nd President of the United States may have met his match and then some in the "star power" category when he attends a get-out-the-vote rally at Cuyahoga Community College with rock legend Bruce Springsteen.
Clinton and Springsteen will appear around mid-day at a rally on the school's soccer fields. It is a ticketed event; and the tickets were distributed quickly at several Obama campaign offices in the Cleveland area.
It's not the first time Springsteen has campaigned for Obama; and won't be the last. Four years ago, just days before the election, Springsteen played for a crowd at the Cleveland Mall.
After tomorrow's event in Parma, Springsteen will go on to Ames, Iowa for an Obama campaign rally there.
Clinton will have the stage all to himself later in the day when he is the headline act at an Obama-Biden rally in the Jefferson County village of Wintersville in eastern Ohio.
