“Here’s what I love about Dylan – he was exactly as you’d expect he would be. He wouldn’t come to the rehearsal. He didn’t want to take a picture with me; usually all the talent is dying to take a picture with me and Michelle before the show, but he didn’t show up to that. He played The Times They Are a-Changin’. A beautiful rendition. The guy is so steeped in this stuff he can come up with a new arrangement and the song sounds completely different. Finishes the song, steps off the stage ... comes up, shakes my hand, sort of tips his head, gives me just a little grin and then leaves. That was our only interaction with him. And I thought, That’s how you want Bob Dylan, right? You don’t want him to be cheesin’ and grinnin’ with you. You want him to be a little skeptical about the enterprise.” ~President Barack Obama

"There were some hotel rooms trashed and mayhem all around," Mr Obama said at the reception for Kennedy Center Honours, an award given for lifetime achievement in the performing arts for Led Zeppelin. "So it's fitting that we're doing this in a room with windows that are about three inches thick and Secret Service all around."

He told the aging rockers to "settle down" and reminded them that "these paintings are valuable".

:D

I agree as stated above. Bob would not care about party affiliation. Pretty sure he realizes the side dont matter just ignore the chatter.
