Changing of Seasons


Economically, it marks the end of the Long Boom, which began in 1983. Politically, it probably marks the end of conservative dominance, which began in 1980. Generationally, it marks the end of baby boomer supremacy, which began in 1968. For the past 16 years, baby boomers, who were formed by the tumult of the 1960s, occupied the White House. Tuesday, November 4th 2008, a member of a new generation became president-elect.

I can't say I'm thrilled with his cabinet. He's picked all of the old baby boomers from the Clinton cruise-control years (including Mrs. Clinton herself). Please lord, give us some new blood in Washington, not the same old folks.
