Bill Flanagan: In that song Chicago After Dark were you thinking about the new President?
Bob Dylan: Not really. It's more about State Street and the wind off Lake Michigan and how sometimes we know people and we are no longer what we used to be to them. I was trying to go with some old time feeling that I had.
BF: You liked Barack Obama early on. Why was that?
BD: I'd read his book and it intrigued me.
