A Generation X President?

Barack Obama was born in 1961 (eight years before your host for those that are counting). Would that make him the first Gex-X candidate? The sources are mixed. According to Wikipedia, the number ranges from 1961 to 1964. In any case, I'm not a baby boomer and nor is he really; I'm much closer in age to Obama than Clinton (or McCain or Huckabee for that matter). My Mother, on the other hand, born in the first year of the baby boom, is closer to the rest. Make you own call.

We built the damn Internet as you know it (Amazon et al.), why can't a gen-x'er be president?
