Reason #12: The Kids Today

Bluto, from Animal House, now presumably has an even wilder kid in movie college

God love ’em, the Facebook generation has brought so much wonderful positive effort and so many new voters to the Obama campaign. But I’m a former college student myself and I fear some vulnerabilities of this potential groundswell:

1. College kids are not the most experienced voters. Most will be voting for the first time. They may have missed registration deadlines or registered incorrectly or in a way that will invite challenge.

2. The Facebook generation is also the 420 generation. College kids may be too lazy, hungover, high, or convinced of victory to bother to vote on election day.

Prove me wrong, guys!
