Not to get political here but I think that the young people’s credibility is on the line if Barack Obama is elected as the President and does not set out to accomplish his campaign promises.
It has been said that from coast to coast young people have been showing up in droves to hear him speak and in turn vote for him at the various primaries and caucuses held around the country.
If elected he would be the sixth youngest President of the United States and this achievement will be mainly driven by the young voters.
So how does this tie in with Generation X and Y and the Young Feds? Well the Federal Government is prime for a mass retirement wave of the baby boomers leaving us the Gens X and Y prime for taking higher senior leadership positions at our agencies at a very young age.
If this happens and Obama is President and does well in Office, the young folks would have nothing to worry about because if and when we are questioned on our experience or lack thereof we can always say that Obama was given a chance and he’s done great things for the country. This obviously will not be true if the opposite were to happen.
