College Boots Made For Walking, Even On Bill

There once was a time when a college appearance by Bill Clinton would have created a sensation. Now the sensation has turned to boredom and fatigue, even at an Ivy League university preparing to vote in today's primaries. Dartmouth students wandered away from Clinton even as he spoke, trying to convince them to support his wife, and apparently making no headway.

At Heading Right, I note that the big story here isn't really that college students like Barack Obama. After all, he won the youth vote in Iowa by a mile, and the turnout of younger voters made the difference for Obama in the caucuses. The big story from Dartmouth is the indifference college students have for the one-time rock star of the Democrats -- and that could be one reason Hillary can't find traction elsewhere.
