Debate Dropout

BY Micah L. Sifry | Thursday, October 14 2004

I didn't watch the debate last night. Not sure if I will find the time to watch a tape, either. Instead, I caught Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Browne, John Fogerty and crew at the Meadowlands, a fundraiser for MoveOnPac and ACT. The highlight finale was all of them singing, with Eddie Vedder, "People Have the Power," the Patti Smith tune. Irony of ironies--that was and is Ralph Nader's campaign theme song. And in 2000, Vedder was at Nader's Madison Square Garden super-rally singing it. Times do change.
