Posted 7:33 p.m., NEW YORK – They can jump, dance, rap and sing, but they can’t vote. These are the 8th grade students from Holy Name of Jesus school, on the Upper West Side. The girls were seen on 95th and Broadway by passersby, chanting an impromptu rap, “Whose gonna lower your taxes? Obama, Obama, Obama!”

One of the girls, who had picked up an Obama-O’Donnell sign and waved it around to people in cars, was very enthusiastic about her contribution.

“Well we can’t vote, but we can do this to make a difference,” she said.
