Even Barack Obama can't tame the Boss

Susan and I were at the concert last night and it was AWESOME!  (Almost as awesome as Obama himself!)
Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel teamed up for the first time on Thursday night for a concert to raise money for the Democrats’ presidential campaign — and kept the Illinois senator waiting in the wings for nearly an hour as they plowed through their songbooks for a happy crowd of donors.
The marathon 3-hour show for nearly 2,000 fans at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom, where tickets started at $500 and ran to $10,000, included backup help for Springsteen and Joel from Springsteen’s wife Patti Scialfa, singers John Legend and India Arie and Joel’s band.
The two aging rockers traded songs through the night, and by the time presidential contender Barack Obama arrived for a speech that was supposed to close the concert the pair was just getting warmed up.
