Bruce Springsteen has endorsed Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for president. In a letter posted on his Wed site, the rock star said he believes Obama is the best candidate to undo “the terrible damage done over the past eight years.”

He has the depth, the reflectiveness, and the resilience to be our next president, He speaks to the America I’ve envisioned in my music for the past 35 years, a generous nation with a citizenry willing to tackle nuanced and complex problems, a country that’s interested in its collective destiny and in the potential of its gathered spirit. A place where ‘…nobody crowds you, and nobody goes it alone.’
