Baseball and Politics, Bush and Kerry, Sox and Yankees

NPR's Mike Pesca attended a Major League Baseball game at Boston's Fenway Park Sunday night, when Sen. John Kerry threw out the first pitch of the game to a chorus of both cheers and boos. Pesca compares baseball to politics -- are the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees similar to the two political candidates?
