Right, left or center, it is way past time to move on - that generation is played...
ARTICLE: Goodbye to All That, by Andrew Sullivan, Atlantic Monthly, December 2007
I really love this piece by Andrew Sullivan. It speaks to everything I think about this campaign and why I'd love to see Obama win.
Listening to McCain trying to talk us into a very dangerous war with Iran makes me very nervous thinking about yet another Boomer in the White House, whether he's slightly unhinged like McCain or too hinged, like Clinton can often seem. Either way, i don't want to do this Boomer thing anymore.
I just want release from that whole mess of a political generation, and Andrew makes that case quite persuasively.
Refighting 1960s culture wars ("hi I am from the sixties, and I am here to help you") in 2007 is the closest thing I can think of to "network firewalls will secure my Web 2.0 apps" way of thinking. Would be great if these people would just move down to Boca and play golf instead of trying to "help" solve the real 2007 (and beyond) problems we actually have to deal with. Cold war ended a looong time ago folks, we have new mountains to climb.
