College student Julio Osegueda enjoys time with Obama

Edison State College communications major Osegueda said he was surprised to be called on by the president -- he was the last person to ask Obama a question in Fort Myers on Tuesday.

"I was just seeing no one else was doing anything to get his attention, so that's when I started jumping up and down and he picked me," said Osegueda, of Cape Coral.
