41. this is why i say we need to do high school campaigning
because younger voters ARE likely to vote more democratic. Kerry was campaigning in a bunch of high schools and even lower grade schools. i think it's because the democratic agenda does appeal to younger voters more. the kids go home and get their parents and others to vote.

if we start a high school campaign reachout starting now, imagine the support we would have from those who turn 18 by 2008 (and 2006). not just them but their parents also. kids have more free time and can influence older people in their family through regular conversations such as when they eat or just hanging around the home. they can talk to parents about how this candidate or this issue will help them with college or other future and they want their parents to go vote on it.
