United Press International brought up an interesting point recently on its Web site. If Barak Obama were to be elected U.S. president come November, then “For the first time in 16 years, the United States will not be ruled by a post-World War II early ‘baby boom’ generation president born in the mid-1940s.”
O.K. – so what?
Well, if past U.S. presidents over the last 14 to 15 years are any indication as to how Americans have been voting, Obama will be a far cry from “the self-indulgent, publicly emotional excesses and extreme certainties of his two predecessors, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush,” according to the Web site.
