“In 2008, Obama was fresh and relatable, catapulting to celebrity status; he became the face of my generation with a message of hope and change. Now that he’s been in office, the enthusiasm has deflated a bit. No, Obama hasn’t quite lived up to expectations, but it was unrealistic to think that he could keep all of his campaign promises or that he could be everything we had built him up to be in 2008.
With young voters getting ready to help pick a candidate again, the focus is not on keeping up Obama’s coolness, but electing the best person to represent their interests. This election is less about being cool and more about decreasing youth unemployment rates or getting control of student loans — as it should be.”
