MCKEESPORT, Pa. -- Sen. Barack Obama was not exactly born in a small town, but he has still managed to win the backing of John Mellencamp.

The Illinois Democrat's campaign announced this evening that the music legend is scheduled to appear with Obama and his wife, Michelle, at a campaign event Tuesday evening in Evansville, Ind.

The announcement comes as the nomination fight with Sen. Hillary Clinton moves from Pennsylvania, where the primary is Tuesday, to Indiana and North Carolina, where the May 6 primaries are next on the calendar.

The Swamp: Obama, Mellencamp and an Indiana town
See small town america is not all bitter

I'm sure he just might want to come out AGAINST McCain...as his campaign used one of Mellencamp's songs without Mellencamp's permission.

I think he's appearing with Hillary this weekend, too. I don't think he's backing either one, just showing support for the party.
