President Biden, America’s future leaders are watching

OK, boomers: You have one last chance not to leave the country in terrible shape.

Technically, Biden isn’t a boomer — he was born in 1942, a few years before the end of World War II — but he does belong to the boomer and boomer-adjacent cohort of American politicians who came of political age in the 1970s and ’80s. They were shaped by Vietnam, Watergate, and Reaganism, and they first took the White House with the election of 46-year-old Bill Clinton in 1992.
