    a transformational moment. A huge movement, especially of young energized voters, helped elect Obama. He effectively disbanded that movement and abandoned it after the inauguration.

    Most young people I know, including my kids and their friends, worked their butts off for Obama in 2008. Now I can't even get them to register to vote in their new residential addresses.

    The turn around has been stunning.
