• “We all have different reasons for wanting to help the President”

    "We all had different reasons for wanting to help the President. I first started supporting Obama in 2008, when I was in college. When I was in school, my professors would always tell us that you would start with an A and just have to keep it. I feel like President Obama started with an F, since he took office in such a crisis, and it's a lot harder to start with something like that and try to raise it up. He's doing so much—working to lower unemployment, raise income, and help with education, and I really believe in all the things he's doing that help me right now: I have student loans, and my health insurance costs are really high. My husband is looking for more work, and I'm pregnant with twins, so a lot of what the President is trying to do affects our family."
