Here’s pretty close to what I said last night in Madison. I said from the stage that we had to play better than good tonight, that the president was here today and he’s a hard act to follow.

Last night in Madison Wisconsin, Bob Dylan made a prediction about who would win the 2012 Presidential election. “We tried to play good tonight since the president was here today,” the “Political World” singer said during his encore performance of “Blowin’ In The Wind.” He went on to add his support for Barack Obama, saying “Don’t believe the media. I think it’s going to be a landslide.”

Whoever you support, remember to get out and vote today!
