Sarah Palin is defending her attack on Barack Obama after accusing him hanging out with the enemy.

"Someone who sees America is imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who target their own country," Palin said.

She's talking about Chicago professor William Ayers. He was the founder of a radical leftist group that claimed responsiblity for bombings in the 60's and 70's. Obama admits the two are acquainted, but says they are not friends. Experts say this isn't a new issue, just one being brought up more now by the McCain campaign.

One guy Obama is proud to pal around with is Bruce Springsteen. The "boss" is rocking the vote for the democrat. Today he played a free acoustic set at Ohio State's campus. Tomorrow he'll sing at an Obama rally in eastern Michigan. And then will join Billy Joel for an Obama fundraiser on October 16th.
