  •  Obama is next gen---Generation Jones (0+ / 0-)

    Obama is part of Generation Jones--born 1954-1965 ('tween the Boomers & GenX'ers).  There's a brand new video which was just posted like in the last couple days dealing with specifically this topic of Obama's generational identity : http://www.youtube.com/...
    In this video, which is around 5 minutes, Karen Tumulty, Howard Wolfson, David Brooks, Al Sharpton, Dick Morris, Clarence Page and other members of the chattering class look at this specific topic of Obama and Palin as Jonesers.  Really good, I thought.  Speaking of Jonathan Alter (in this outstanding diary above), he wrote a column about Obama being a member of Generation Jones in Newsweek a few months ago.  I generally agree with pretty much everyhting he writes; both in style and substance, Alter's got his shit together.
