"Students for __________"

There are "Students for" groups popping up on college campuses. Barack Obama leads the polls among young people, and this shows in his efforts to sway college students. There are already five Students for Barack Obama chapters in Missouri. The Maneater takes a look at the fledgling Mizzou for Obama group:
“Our most important goal is to turn out 5,600 pledges on Feb. 5, the date of the primaries,” Mizzou for Obama President Michele Boeche said. “We’ll probably be registering more than that, but we would like to get 20 percent of the undergraduate population of campus to pledge.”
The Missouri Southern College Democrats are undertaking an interesting strategy of forming the "Students for" groups themselves in order to siphon more people into their organization. So far, MSSU for Hillary has the most facebook members of the presidential candidate groups.
