This week, we're spinning up a massive program to register half a million young voters in swing states. This is the year of the young voter, and we all need to do everything we can to make sure every last young person votes on Election Day....
People say that the way Obama wins this election is by bringing more people into politics. And this program is the best way to make sure that every last person Barack has inspired and engaged actually shows up to vote on November 4th.
As someone Obama has neither inspired nor engaged, and who is so untrendily unyoung, where does that leave me?
NOTE: Outreach to younger voters is a wonderful agenda. Constantly marginalizing lifetime Democrats... not so much. "This is the year of the young voter," "we all need to do everything we can to make sure every last young person votes," and "These are the voters who will tip this election" are just more reminders of who's on this bus and who's been tossed under it.
