‘Born to Run’ for president? Biden would endorse Springsteen
The Boss may not have any political aspirations that we know of, but if he did, he would get Vice President Joe Biden's vote.
During a recent article in Billboard magazine, Biden was asked which musician he believes would make the best United States president. Biden's response pointed to Bruce Springsteen, who he thinks would get a lot of support from middle class America.
"The middle class would have the best chance with Bruce Springsteen," Biden told Billboard. "He understands issues facing working Americans."
The support between Springsteen and the Executive Branch is apparently mutual. The New Jersey rocker supported the campaign of Biden and President Barack Obama in 2008 and again in 2012.
In 2002, Springsteen was urged to run for the U.S. Senate as a third-party candidate but at the time, told The Asbury Park Press that he had no intention of running or serving as an elected official.
His music - specifically his song "We Take Care of Our Own" - was part of the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
