Wow! Dylan isn’t one to talk much about anything, much less politics…at least since the early-60s when he unwillingly became the ‘voice of his generation’…and completely sabotaged it by the mid-60s. Well, Dylan had a lot of good things to say about Democratic Presidential nominee, Barack Obama, when he spoke to the London Times recently. Here’s how it went:
“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.”
My thoughts exactly, Bob!
