Sen. Springsteen (D-NJ)...

has a GREAT ring to it, yes?

Born to Run--but for Public Office? On the 30th anniversary of the release of Bruce Springsteen's Born to Run, Sens. Jon Corzine and Frank Lautenberg, both New Jersey Democrats, proposed a resolution congratulating The Boss on his contribution to American culture. It's the sort of thing that normally sails through Congress. But the resolution was shot down by Senate Republicans, presumably for the support Springsteen lent John Kerry last year.
Now, as Corzine mulls over possible replacements for his Senate seat (he was elected governor of New Jersey earlier this month), there is a push among his constituents for him to name--who else?--The Boss.
Anthony Coley, Corzine's press secretary, says it's not a bad idea--"especially," he adds, "if you're a Springsteen fan."
That I am, that I am.

Well well your a fan sweet. I guess the Stone Pony will now be on the national map. Since the boss often stops in for a beer or two I see how you too would get along. You and the Boss have another thing in comment you both love all the people. I wish Bruce the best but thats Senate thing is somewhat new to him. Maybe he's to honest for that job. Senator Springsteen formerly of Asbury Park New Jersey sounds nice.
