From the Obama rally at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where hope is still alive, reality prevailed:
Emily Lawless, a UW-Madison junior from Lakeville, Minn., waited in line five and a half hours for the chance to see the president live.
“You’re not going to remember your accounting class when you’re 40, but you’ll definitely remember this,” she said.
Enthusiastic, but will they vote?
But the thrill of seeing the president doesn’t necessarily translate into supporting Democratic candidates during a midterm election. Even Lawless admitted she would likely not vote. “It’s too much work with the absentee ballot,” she said.
Which reminds me, I haven’t run this photo in a while:
I wonder where they are now?
