Michael Barone's column this week, on Barack Obama as a figure of generational change, reminded me of a piece by Jamie Stiehm on the same theme that we ran in the op-ed column a few months ago: that Obama is a post-Bboomer (and, by the by, that John McCain's silent generation has never had a White House occupant). Both Michael's and Jamie's pieces are worth a read.
