The Worst Generation

David Frum nominating the baby boomers who have held the power during the past 10 years (meaning moving into and now slowly out of the economic crisis) and who have not cared well for the younger generations in doing so.

I think he has it just about right. The college kids of today are a bit more practical than their parents, and I think the future center of the country is going quite liberal/libertarian socially, but what I would call 'cautiously progressive' meaning able to engage a debate about spending and taxes with the proviso that the two need to be the same over the long run. One of the political parties will better adapt to this emerging reality.
