Thread Name: Dylan to be awarded Medal of Freedom
Subject: RE: Dylan to be awarded Medal of Freedom
Most youth are not all that focused on Bob Dylan and may not know who he is anymore at this point, so I doubt that Obama is courting the youth vote in making that decision. Dylan is being rewarded for being so strong in the memory of the older people, and for having influenced the political and philosophical views of millions of people all over the world.
