U2 has quite an investment in the election of Barack Obama as they are so passionate about liberty and have always been a force for the White House to contend with. I recall seeing them perform in Tempe, AZ on the Zoo TV tour at Arizona State University Activity Center in October 1992. I laughed with my heart breaking as Bono would dial up the White House from the stage to try and talk to George Bush. A bit he did, no doubt, from every performance. I'm so happy for all of us and for Martin Luther King's Dream that lives on in the name of love.
Here is a video from a White House party in D.C. yesterday that includes two songs, "Pride" and "City of Blinding Lights" leading us into a Martin Luther King Day to remember.
Thanks to IllBeBackCall for posting the video.
