      the only way i see the GOP surviving as a feasible party in the next couple decades is if it can convince a significant chunk of the boomers to change their political stripes and become cranky selfish old voters.

      i see the stress marks every now and then, often around local debates over housing and school bond votes, but it's far from a sure thing. any dem/prog strategy going forward rests in no small part in appealing to those boomer retirees' self-image as liberal do-gooders, and link all of our struggles to one another.

      if the boomers stay where they are, the GOP is toast, given the size and political/demographic tilt of the millennials.
