    I saw 'black and white TVs' upthread too.

    I believe Luke was born in the 1970s, so he's a middle-aged Gen-Xer. Whereas I was born the following decade, which qualifies me as a Millennial.

    It's easy to forget that a world existed before you did. My parents were both born within years of WW2 ending. WW2 is effectively as real to me as the Battle of Hastings.

    These pre-9/11 whippersnappers don't know they're born.

    that's actually one of the challenges of the clinton campaign in relation to women voters. women in their 50s and older lived through lots of women's rights battles themselves (in the workplace and society in general) and are largely very excited about the prospect of the first female president; whereas that same historic nature doesn't even dawn on many 20-something women who have never faced the equivalent discrimination. the news footage at the DNC convention was telling: older women were is tears of joy when she accepted the nomination, while some younger delegates clearly didn't know or care what all the fuss was about.

    obviously there are also other reasons why young women might not favor clinton, but their historical perspective plays a role.
