It’s been fascinating in the exit polls from the 2008 presidential primaries observing the age gradient for Obama supporters. Children of Boomers support Obama significantly more than their parents and the Boomers in turn are more likely to support Obama than their parents.
Now the Obama campaign is putting this to good use.
The New York Times reported on children persuading their parental Superdelegates to vote for Obama. (See: “Young Obama Backers Twist Parents’ Arms” 4/18/08)
Now comes a wonderful grassroots-developed video of kids pleading for their parents to support Obama.
Children have persuaded us to give up smoking, and recycle. Why shouldn’t their hope inspire us now to vote?
