The Barack the Youth Vote blog is written by select students from across the country who believe that Senator Barack Obama is the best candidate for the 2008 Presidency. Our goal is to add depth and substance to the Obama movement, and to facilitate discussion concerning his historic run for President.
Specifically, we aim to engage the “youth vote,” which has a history of being apathetic to political campaigns. We believe, however, that as youths come to better understand Obama’s values and priorities, they will realize the importance of his candidacy. In turn they will help out and lend their support to his campaign. And vote!
It is our hope that this blog will engage the youths of this country and inspire them to lend their support to Senator Obama.
