Barack Obama draws protests and cheers during speech at Auraria (PHOTOS)

Neither snow nor SNOBAMA could prevent President Barack Obama from taking the podium at the Auraria campus this morning. During his address, he touted his jobs bill and a restructuring of student loans -- a topic calculated to appeal to a crowd estimated at 4,000.

Photographer Chip Kalback captured the scene outside, where protesters made their points, and in. Check out his images below.
