    I'm all for it.

    It makes politics more interesting.

    I use to play a lot of John Cougar songs in my younger years. Here was my favorite:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dOsbsuhYGQ]YouTube - John Mellencamp - Hurts So Good[/ame]

    I'd vote for him.

    I have always said that entertainers should stay out of politics unless they put their name on the ballot. Could be interesting.

    Great musician but from what I've seen so far too far to the left for Indiana, if the Democrats want any chance to win that seat in 2010 they need another Evan Bayh to run not an Al Franken.

    Here in Indiana people either LOVE LOVE LOVE John Cougar Mellancamp, or HATE HATE HATE him. He could run on the Libertarian, Republican or Democrat ticket and they wouldn't care.

    He has the money to run, and I suspect he'll use that to be the 'man behind the curtain'-or the man with the deep pockets- for whoever the Dems decide to run.

    Ummm... I'd imagine that "loving" or "hating" him has FAR more to do with his music than with his politics, after all you can't sing your way through a public debate (well I guess you could but it would be awkward and you'd probably lose).

    And what has Al Franken done wrong as a Senator so far? Al Franken has been a model Senator so far.

    Your mudslinging doesn't work when it's complete bullshit.
