People really hate the FAFSA ...

Sen. Hillary Clinton drew a large crowd to the Bobcats Time Warner Cable Arena last night. I'd say the arena was 60 percent to 70 percent full.

She drew lots of applause on the usual topics — the war, health care, jobs, gas prices — but many people in the audience must have some really terrible students loans. When she said she'd do away with the FAFSA form that people have to file to get aid for college, you would have thought she'd promised six-figure jobs for all. When she asked who was paying more than 20 percent interest on their student loans, several people applauded. Twenty percent or more????
