BORN TO RUN... FOR OFFICE?

A coalition calling itself "The Independence for New Jersey" has launched a campaign to get Bruce Springsteen elected as New Jersey's next U.S. senator. In order to get the Boss on the ballot, the group — headed by political consultant Doug Friedline (the same guy who helped put Jesse Ventura in office) — must have 800 signatures on its petition by June 4. It's not clear whether Springsteen has any desire to go into politics, but he must be flattered by all the attention.
