Hope and Change? A Conversation on the Obama Presidency

When Barack Obama asked for support from America's youth in 2008, many came out in record numbers to [...]participate in a historic election, and the transformation of a nation seemed to rest firmly in their grasp. Young voters and volunteers rallied around him and identified with his message of hope and change.

Now, as President Obama embarks on a bid for re-election, how have perceptions changed? Were the promises he made to America’s youth fulfilled? Will young voters stand behind him again?

Boston University faculty and political experts discussed the Obama Presidency in a town-hall style discussion with students.
