Old and Tired Baby Boomers – 2016 Presidential Edition

It appears that others are now noticing that the Democratic party is fielding a very old slate of Presidential contenders. This is of course something I commented on several days ago, or longer in my consideration of possible future US Presidents.  So, where are the Gen X Democratic contenders?  While Gen X is slightly more Republican leaning, especially the older Xers, there are still plenty of Gen X Democrats.  Has Hillary scared everyone off until after she is out of the way?  If she wins and serves two terms, the next shot for the Gen X Democrats (or Republicans) in this scenario is in 2024.  That would make the oldest Generation X politicians 59 years old and the youngest 42.  So, I guess we still have a reasonable shot at the White House!

Hillary!
Hillary!
