MTV's "Rock the Vote" was omnipresent. They broadcast political activism on the bass beats of the "Black Eyed Peas" or through "Maroon 5's" guitar riffs. But for them, the convention was a scene. Politics weren't about issues, it was about yelling loudly, in a selfish way that only the hipster generation can. "Rock the Vote" claims 20 million strong in their youth movement, and they claim to be broadcasting a platform important to 18-30 year olds. That platform seemed to involve the right to party, nothing about social security reform, foreign policy, taxes, student loans or land conservation. Rockin' and rollin', now that's a great agenda, but do these passionate youngsters vote? Statistically, that age group doesn't turn out on Election Day (36 percent in 2000).
