Tim Grieve captured the glory of Bruce Springsteen's Madison appearance earlier today, but the Kerry-Edwards site has the video here. Salon's Badger contingent is very proud. Madison really is that beautiful. And Springsteen -- who this aging War Roomer saw, and danced with, in Madison in 1977 -- really is a national hero. He likely swung Wisconsin, too smart to be a swing state anyway, into the Kerry column permanently.
