Generation X and the Presidency

I only noticed today that The Fix blog on the Washington Post discussed the Marco Rubio candidacy in terms of Generation X and the Presidency. As I have noted before, I am not sure that we will ever have a Gen X President.  Philip Bump at the Fix also notes that the demographic power of the Baby Boomers and then the Millennials mean that it is pretty likely that we will have more Boomer Presidents, and then of course, a Millennial – which he reacts to with mock horror.

The Fix has written before that these Generational terms are fluid and artificial.  Which of course, they are, being largely marketing terms.  But, I think that among those of us in Gen X, it is a term that we do identify with.  Whether we ever elect our own President or not.
