Bill Clinton, Bruce Springsteen hit trail for President Barack Obama in Ohio

PARMA, Ohio - President Barack Obama's campaign is bringing in a pair of rock stars to stir up supporters in Ohio.

Political rock star Bill Clinton and real rocker Bruce Springsteen will share the stage on Thursday at a campaign rally in suburban Cleveland.

With less than three weeks to go before the election, Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are counting on some big names to build up enthusiasm.

Former President Clinton will start the day at a rally in Parma and then appear at another event in the eastern Ohio town of Wintersville.

Springsteen is making his debut on the 2012 campaign trail Thursday after stumping for Obama in 2008. He'll start out in the Cleveland before moving on to a Democratic campaign event in Ames, Iowa, later Thursday.
