I know this sounds wacky, and there is absolutely no evidence in or out of the books, but I always thought Bombadil was the personification of an ideal, pre-industrial England. The safe and free island that the corruption of the Continent cannot touch.

On another level, I think he may be a self-portrait painted in words by the author, a sort of Hitchcock-like cameo.
