Springsteen: 'A world that challenges hopefulness'

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Rock legend Bruce Springsteen is joining President Barack Obama at a rally in Wisconsin, playing the anthem "Land of Hope and Dreams." He says that after Obama ran with an optimistic message of change in 2008 he now faces "a world that challenges your hopefulness."

Springsteen was spending Obama's final day of campaigning with the president, traveling with him on Air Force One and opening rallies for him in Madison, Wis.; Columbus, Ohio; and Des Moines, Iowa.

Springsteen jokes that while he's proud to be endorsing the president again, "that first debate really freaked me out."
