LOS ANGELES - Former President Bill Clinton told thousands of young people to follow through on their 2008 vote for President Barack Obama by turning up at the polls for Democrats again this year.

Clinton appeared with California gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown and lieutenant governor hopeful Gavin Newsom Friday night at the University of California, Los Angeles.

He told the crowd of about 6,000 supporters that if young people vote in the same percentage as they did two years ago "all the good guys win."

Clinton is barnstorming on behalf of Democrats nationwide. He says he never expected to spend so much time on the trail, but he felt compelled to get out because of the negative tone in political discourse.

The former president rallied supporters earlier Friday in Santa Ana for Democratic Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez.
