October 18: The Boss hits the campaign trail
Less than three weeks before the presidential election, President Barack Obama scored a major celebrity backer -- Bruce Springsteen. Springsteen supported Obama in 2008, but had planned to sit out this election, echoing the disenchantment of some voters who backed the president four years ago. But the blue-collar rocker agreed to appear with former President Bill Clinton at an Obama campaign rally in northeastern Ohio and then kept going, appearing at rallies with Obama in Iowa, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
