Your president is again calling upon you to help him.
I remain intrigued by the dwindling enthusiasm I see among the young people I see for the Obama administration. No, I'm not saying every student feels that way. No, I'm not saying that every student I see was a supporter of Mr. Obama when he ran for president two years ago.
Instead what I'm suggesting is that the zeal and exuberance I saw in America's 18-24 crowd has waned. I don't have a definitive explanation for it. Possible answers are: they were never that interested in politics to begin with; this president has let them down; they have other priorities; or they believe they did their job by getting him elected.
If young people reject the president's call to turn out at the polls this November, then there will be much more written about what has happened to those young voters. And the president himself will have to explain how he turned the rabid support of young voters in 2008 into something that now borders on collapsing.
