I wonder if Obama is destined to be plagued by the nuanced difference between transcending issues…and fudging them. Even his generation. As a Baby Boomer, I hereby relinquish all rights to the guy–and I suspect, given his entirely apt comments about being sick of the “dorm room arguments of the sixties,” he doesn’t see himself as a Boomer either. Being an appropriately solipsistic member of my generation, I can’t keep up with those who came after–Gen X was next, I know, and yielded to Gen Y…but when? And what Gen are we up to now? Gen You?
