Generation Gap 2008

Ha. Good one!
Could see that on a cover of a national magazine.
(But then I guess you'd have to have a Republican version, too ... ABBA/ Britany Spears?)

Making this "generation gap" comparison between Obama and Hillary seems like a stretch to me.

I think having a black man and a woman in the race for President makes them both not "old school."

I don't understand why Obama is the choice for young people. I'm 28, gay, live in an urban area and I'm all for Hillary!

obsession with defining Republicans
for some odd reason.I dare say my collection of music would make your jaw drop...Beatles to Zappa.Miles Davis to Joe've most likely never heard of those 2...
Try to shelve the pigeonholing.You're usually wrong-

Maybe not too off base, after all,j.carrey. Those are applicable:

MIAMI - John McCain has a soft spot for Swedish disco icon ABBA.

Spears demonstrated her fealty to President Bush in 2002, when she told Carson Daly: “Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes, and we should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens.”

But Lee Greenwood and Kid Rock would be better choices.

Anon 12:03 --

As an example to answer your question, take a look at the primary election results from states like Missouri (for example) -- you can see them at

In that Dem. primary Obama pulled down about 2/3 of the under-30 vote, while Clinton got about 2/3 of the over-60 vote. Overall, Obama won the under-45 vote while Clinton won the over-45 vote.

There is a big generation gap among Dem. voters. It may be more tied to organizational loyalty and valuing a long track record than about race, but it is there.

P.S. I agree that a female nominee is not "old school", but Clinton is about as old school as any candidate they had.

Re music and politics: Rock and roll is as mainstream as anything else now. Led Zepplin sells Caddies. Dylan, Victoria's Secret. (I think to be truly weird today you need to play classical music. And read a lot.)
Here's an intersting quote:
"'I’ve been a Republican since I was a little boy,' Johnny Ramone said. He recalls watching Richard Nixon debate John F Kennedy in the 1960 campaign, and perversely decided to support Nixon because everyone he knew liked JFK."
If Obama is the next Kennedy does that mean Amy Winehose is the next Anita Bryant? There are no easy pigeon holes any more -- not since rednecks grew their hair long and confused the whole costume party.
But if John McCain plays ABBA then it's pretty clear that he's got the Swedish American vote all sewn up!
