Does John Kerry Play the Sax?

Salon has an interview/bookreview with Danny Goldberg, author of Dispatches From the Culture Wars: How the Left Lost Teen Spirit.

The book (and the article) focuses on how the left seems to have lost touch with the youth of today. It’s no surprise to me that young people had trouble getting behind a candidate who’s wife was leading the charge against pop culture. But I don’t exactly see kids getting to passionate about any of the ‘04 candidates. Bill Clintion famously appeared on MTV and played the sax on Arsenio… Today, what? Howard Dean’s got a blog, and we’re supposed to be excited? When will someone stand up for free speech instead of attacking Hip-Hop Lyrics?
