The crowd loved him

It may have been a tough week for the president at the Supreme Court, but you wouldn't have known that Friday: thousands of students at the University of Vermont couldn't get enough of Obama during a campaign speech.

You knew things would go well for him when his opening comment: "I'm here..." was interrupted by applause. Huge cheers erupted when the president talked about withdrawing from Iraq, health care reform, and affordable education.

In a swipe at Republicans, the president said hard work is a value, but so is "looking out for one another...I'm my brother's keeper. I'm my sister's keeper. That's a value. " Wild applause.
