MADISON, WISC. -- Bruce Springsteen spoke to reporters on the tarmac after he alighted Air Force One, with his wife, Patti.
Asked if this was his first trip on Air Force one, he said yes, then started grinning.
"It was pretty cool," he said, according to the pool report.
Springsteen had just played to an estimated 18,000 in a rally for President Obama in Madison.
Obama talked about allowing Springsteen to travel with him on the eve of the 2012 election.
"I get to fly around with him on the last day that I ever campaign," Obama said.
