CNET News Video: Political party playlists

1:48 /

We know the Democrats and Republicans are split over policy issues, but does their musical taste fall down party lines too? And what kind of gadgets did they bring to the conventions to listen to their music? CNET reporter Kara Tsuboi finds out.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> The Democrats had Sheryl Crow rock out at their Convention. The Republicans, Christian singer Rachael Lampa.

Whether it's the iPod, the Zune, or even phones that play music. >> My girls have the iPods in the family and they don't share 'em very often, so. >> [laughing] I'm 72 years old I can hardly work my camera and my [laughing] internet. >> Not listening to any tunes while I'm out, I'm listening to speeches. >> In Saint Paul, Minnesota I'm Kara Tsuboi, www.cnet.com. ^m00:01:45 [ Music ]
