    how is this a news story? it’s written by someone who is an obvious obama supporter. What about the other side? what a joke.

    This is clearly news because we need to be aware of how delusional these people can get and how much help they really need.

    There is absolutely no ideological or political balance to this piece. I can’t call it news, just an author and her sources spouting about how they “helped” the Obama campaign. Absolutely insignificant and un-newsworthy.

    This is unfortunately the kind of drivel one can now come to expect from campus political “reporting” these days. How about some hard questions, like why their hero Obama hasn’t come through on many of his campaign promises, or why his signature piece of legislation so far was a massive, bloated “stimulus” bill that cannot possibly achieve its stated goals?

    Maybe it’s a little too deep for a college paper, but how about some reporting on the effect of Scott Brown’s election in the People’s Republic of Taxachussetts? How about something on the newly needed bipartisanship?

    The impression I get from this piece is that there are at least 3-4 (probably a big-time underestimation) starry-eyed Obama supporters still willing to spout off on the Drake campus. Break the bubble that surrounds you, and welcome to reality!
