Bruce Springsteen joining final Hillary Clinton all-star Democratic rally

The Hillary Clinton campaign is bringing out some truly great star power for its final rally on the eve of Election Day. The Clinton campaign announced Monday morning that Clinton will be joined in Philadelphia by President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, along with her husband former President Bill Clinton and their daughter Chelsea — plus rockers Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.

Whether or not there is any cause and effect, this announcement comes right on the heels of reports last night that Trump supporters booed Springsteen's music at a rally in the Pittsburgh area — making their displeasure at him known so thoroughly that the sound technicians had to shut off two different songs of his, "Born in the U.S.A." and "Glory Days."

Springsteen previously campaigned for Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry in 2004, then for Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2012.

The Boss has also denounced Donald Trump in some very strong terms, telling Rolling Stone in an interview this past September: "Well, you know, the republic is under siege by a moron, basically. The whole thing is tragic. Without overstating it, it's a tragedy for our democracy." In October, Springsteen told Britain's Channel 4 News: "He's such a flagrant, toxic narcissist that he wants to take down the entire democratic system with him if he goes."
