WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is telling Democratic
supporters not to lose heart just because everything that they hoped to happen in an Obama administration hasn't come to pass just yet.
Three weeks out from Election Day, the president acknowledged Tuesday night that some Democrats just don't have "the same enthusiasm and excitement and energy" as they did in 2008. But he
says it's critical that Democrats get out and vote to build on the progress that's been made in the last two years.
Obama was talking to a crowd of supporters gathered at George Washington University in Washington. He was taking questions from
the audience and others submitted through social network sites like
Facebook and Twitter.
