Wait… What?

From a WaPo story looking at the Democratic primary from a generational perspective (which I think is inane to begin with):

…Almost a year ago, in a speech to African American leaders in Selma, Ala., [Obama] underlined the differences between two different types of generations: the “Moses generation” that led the children of Israel out of slavery, and the “Joshua generation” that established the kingdom of Israel. The first was a generation of idealists and dreamers, the second a generation of doers and builders.

With that speech, in which he associated Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton with the former generation and claimed the mantle of the latter for himself, Obama fired the first shot in an election battle that’s being fought along the dividing lines between these two generational archetypes.

So… Lemme get this straight: Hillary is the idealistic dreamer, and Obama is the pragmatic doer?

Fascinating.

    The more I hear from Obama, the more he sounds like a narcissistic little prick.

    Don’t we already have one of those in the White House?
