“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” When Obama utters statements like this one, are they profound truths or new-age mumbo jumbo? Maybe it depends on whether we ARE the ones we’ve been waiting for. Most baby boomers have been waiting for something better than themselves, so they get the mumbo jumbo. But Millennials, or Generation Y — they have been waiting for their turn and they have been waiting for themselves. So for them, it’s a profound truth that strikes deep in their souls. Good for them. And if that stirring of the soul gets them to the polls, then they’ll get what they deserve: a president who speaks for them. And if they don’t, if they stay home the way young people typically do — well, then they’ll get what they deserve in that case too.
