    fits that description: older, white progressive. I love these folks.

    But statistics and demographics are what they are. Well over 60% of older whites voted for Romney.

      At least according to CNN and ABC, who are saying seniors voted 56-44 for Romney.  And although women voted for Obama 55-44 (which is almost the exact opposite), white women of all ages went for Romney 56-42, which is even worse than the senior demographic.

      I suppose I keep mentioning this because those numbers horrify me.  I don't understand them at all.

      Can we stop generalizing about the >65 group now?  We do have words and pictures that explain exactly what group of people we want to represent.
