For a smarter president.

“The vote for change tour is a wake-up call. We may alienate some fans over this. I don’t like that – I prefer to have music stand apart from political feelings. But this is so important, it’s worth it. If I piss a few people off, good. Because, frankly, I’m scared. Unlike a lot of political issues, this is literally life or death. Kerry understands how the world works, in a way that Bush does not. When Bush ran the first time, I realized something: I want my president to be smarter than I am. I don’t ask much, but I want him to be smarter than me.”
~ Mike Mills, R.E.M.
