Meet the Panopticon, Age 21

Bob Kerrey gets interviewed in Foreign Policy. Here’s an interesting prediction:

FP: How will college students affect November’s election and the U.S. presidential race two years from now?

BK: They’re likely to have a very large impact as a result of this ‘macaca’ type of an event [involving Sen. George Allen]. They’re going to be out with cameras and tape recorders and blogs, and they’ll be carrying a larger part of the debate itself. I think it will likely be a relatively small fraction of young people who turn out and vote. [But] in the blogosphere and beyond, there will be something that will be comparable to this remarkable story of George Allen — it was, I think, a 20-year-old who [broke that story]. I think you’ll see a lot more of that.

Worth reading.
