    Convention thoughts from Tom Webb


    Monday, August 30, 2004

    Bob Dylan tribute? 

    The roll-call of the states began early at the Republican National Convention -- on opening day -- and that's when Sen. Norm Coleman stepped to the microphone and quoted Bob Dylan.

    "Minnesota native Bob Dylan said 'Times they are a-changin.' They are changing in Minnesota, with our great young Republican governor Tim Pawlenty, half of our Washington delegation being Republican, and for the first time in 32 years in a presidential election, Minnesota is going to be in the Republican column on Nov. 2."

    It's a nifty turn of phrase, yet it's far from clear that Bob Dylan would approve. The Hibbing-bred singer/songwriter/legend has spoken on stage about his regard for the late Sen. Paul Wellstone, and is rumored (but no more than that) to be among the musicians who will perform at concerts this fall designed to defeat President Bush and put Democrat John Kerry in the White House.
