Obama Inspiring Musicians to Action

Barack Obama's run for the presidency is "stirring political passion in the music world unlike any candidate in recent history," declares KBS radio's Scott Miller. He quotes R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe as saying, "We are a country of ideas that have been squandered. With Obama, we have the possibility to have someone who represents what we are in the 21st century. My generation blew it, and for the first time in my life, I can vote for someone younger than me."
