It's all oranges and apples. John Lennon's time was very primitive when Pop music and politics wouldn't share the same building much less shake hands in the oval office. Bono's tactic is more like '007' - infiltrating the bad guys by wining and dining them. Lennon was more like a guy scratching a CEO's Porsche with a key and proclaiming it a victory.

That's a very creative way of saying it. And which one does more good at the end of the day?
