is that a new era, a new generation of politics has begun. The baby-boomers and what's left of their parents are fading in terms of influence, and their children have set the agenda. Considering my disdain for what I consider to be a failure of a generation, my parent's generation, those people in their late forties, fifties and sixties now, I couldn't be happier. I approach Obama's administration with a degree of trepidation, especially in light of the fact that he may be unrestrained by a Democratic majority Congress, but also considerable hope for the potential it represents and may fulfill. It's going to be a deep hole to dig out of, but it is still possible, and this election seems to be a good start.
