“I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders — one who may not be as well-known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started — may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee. In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.” — Mitt Romney
Has the time come to pass the torch? Not just juice up the grand old party with geritol tweets and flash mobs of tech-savvy geezers but revamp and revitalize it with fresh untired, untried blood? Same goes for others in the game.
But who are these next generation Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians and Indies? From under what rock, upon what mountain top do we find them or are they already among us yet to be anointed and taken seriously as leaders?
Should Mitt’s admonition be ignored by our experienced pols and as Pete Seeger sings:
As sleep dims my vision, I say to myself
Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?
But nations are warring and business is vexed
So I’ll stick around to see what happens next
