The Great Generational Divide
I've long maintained that the best reason to support a Barack Obama candidacy is to promote a shift in power in this country, out of the hands of the old, wealthy, AARP, greatest generation-ers and into the hands of the generations coming up. Too many in their ranks have had to borrow their way into the middle class.
I'm not sure Barack will actually promote a redistribution of wealth platform, but his victory would be a symbolic first step toward changing our social and economic landscape.
That being said, the Sacramento Bee has a story today touching on the potential of the youth vote in California.
