He has my vote! (Of course, I don’t live in New Jersey)

Group Wants Springsteen for Senate
Sure, Bruce Springsteen was born to run. But was he born to run for office?
Political consultant Doug Friedline thinks so. He’s leading a campaign to get the Boss elected as New Jersey’s next U.S. senator.
A coalition calling itself “The Independence for New Jersey” launched a petition drive Tuesday to get the 800 signatures of registered voters required by June 4 to place Springsteen on the ballot.
It’s not that simple though, officials said. Springsteen would have to sign on to consent to becoming a candidate. His publicist did not return a call seeking comment.
Friedline, of Brooklyn Park, Minn., managed Jesse Ventura’s successful Minnesota gubernatorial campaign in 1998.
Not having talked with Springsteen, Friedline is uncertain of the 52-year-old singer’s ideology, but knows this: “His record shows that if he believes in a cause, he’ll get involved.”
Volunteers hope Springsteen would run as an independent this fall against incumbent U.S. Sen. Robert Torricelli, a Democrat, and whichever Republican emerges from the June 4 primary. The Republican candidates are state Sen. Diane Allen, state Sen. John Matheussen and businessman Doug Forrester.
