NPR's Mike Pesca profiles the efforts of Bruce Springsteen fan and political activist Andrew Rasiej to get "The Boss" on the Kerry bandwagon. Rasiej has reserved Giants Stadium on September 1 in an effort to goad Springsteen into headlining a concert there to protest the Republican National Convention, which will nominate President Bush for another four years in office on the same day, just across the river.
