Apparently, November doesn't matter. Only THE FUTURE matters.

So while the pundits and prognosticators all fret over whether Obama can win over the famed "Reagan Democrats"--conservative-leaning boomers and older Xers who voted for Reagan in 1980 and 1984 on the basis of his anti-government and not-so-subtle racism and cemented the voting patterns that are the hallmark of the realignment of 1968--I have my sights on the future. Reagan Democrats are not the future, and they will probably never come back to the Democratic fold in the sorts of numbers that will swing an election to our Party in the years ahead. That is because their instinctive focus on divisive social issues, their racial resentments that were the subject of Obama's masterful speech on race in Philadelphia, their inherent distrust for government and its efficacy, and their disbelief in the power to effectuate real change through partisan means are directly contrary to the message of the post-racial, structurally focused and fundamentally optimistic Millennials that the Democratic Party should and must adopt going forward. Reagan Democrats are not the present or future of the Party: new immigrants (especially Hispanics) and Millennials are.

That's why Obama is the right nominee for Democrats in 2008. Not just because he is winning by all real measures, including actual delegates and the popular vote, nor because he is just as electable as Clinton if not more so. All of these are true, but it wouldn't matter if they were not.

Obama is the nominee who can literally lock in structural advantages for Democrats for the next forty years (to say nothing of Obama's downballot advantages today). Clinton is the nominee who will wage an increasingly futile battle to bring back the lost Democratic coalitions of yesteryear.

In THE FUTURE, you see, there'll be a permanent Democratic majority, ready to sing the postapocalyptic dirges over the wasteland after Bush III. This is THE FUTURE.

not young people or rich people. Millenials are not voting in giant numbers, and young people have absorbed the GOP "govt sucks" mantra that Obama himself reinforces all the time.

(i guess the future really is Hispanics, old boomers, and poor people)

before this years "young" voters, are actually voting in numbers that will make a difference.

They aren't turning out like you would expect them too, if they are all focused on Hope, and the OFB would have us believe.

THE FUTURE. Important to distinguish between THE FUTURE and the future.

and they were the first batch of millenials (the same age as Baby Jessica in the well and Baby on Board signs, etc--born in the early 80s) -- and the GOP misrule since then has reinforced that govt is not something that helps all and that no one should turn to govt for help even if a whole city is drowning...

(i guess Chelsea is one of them too, along with Jenna and NotJenna)

this is the fatal flaw in his campaign...and why even McCain is talking specifics (altho terribly).

he is going after the intelligent vote.

But that's not enough, we need a majority!

"... While Barack Obama carried voters under 30 years old on Tuesday by 20 points — 60 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 40 percent—he narrowly lost whites in the same age group by four points, 48 percent compared to Clinton’s 52 percent.

Young whites were the only white demographic that Obama carried in close primaries leading up to Pennsylvania’s, as he did in the Clinton stronghold of New York, and in states with racially polarized voting among older voters, such as South Carolina.

Normally Clinton only wins the white youth vote in states she totally dominates, such as Arkansas — not ones where she won by 10 points or less overall as she did in Pennsylvania.
