Attacking Barack With the Boss

Slate V imagines an anti-Springsteen, anti-Obama ad.

Bruce Springsteen has come out for Barack Obama. You might think the working-class rocker's endorsement is the perfect tonic for those "bitter" fumes engulfing Obama, following his recent ill-chosen remarks about small-town America. Certainly the timing seems great, with a critical primary in blue-collar Pennsylvania just days away.

Or, if you're Hillary Clinton, you might try to turn the Boss' show of support for Obama into a big fat negative. Slate V imagines what the attack might look like.
