If Obama is going to try and buy the student vote, just keeping interest rates low isn't going to cut it these days. That's an insult to educated kids. He should at least promise to forgive all debt for anyone that ever went to college, that might do it.

“i hope we can change this!”

And while he's at it he might as well hand out some bonus stash cash to people that never went to college as thanks for not having unpaid student loans owed to the govt. That should buy some more votes.
