Damn, talk about hitting the nail on the head. I'm also 29 and your reader's email is dead on about our generation.  At this point I don't know a single friend of my generation who doesn't see Obama as the only viable candidate precisely because of his unifying pragmatism outside of the tired arguments of our parents generation.  He talks and looks like so many of us and our friends, while the other candidates seem to still be playing a game we are all too familiar with and have been disgusted by for a long time.

On a related note, I walked out of Juno the other day filled with great hope in our younger generation.  It is a great example of post boomer and post-90's thought on abortion, marriage, love and life.  Between this and Obama I'm just about getting excited about the possibility for a rather bright future for us.
