The Question Matters

President Obama and Generation X

Posted in Leadership,Next Generation Leaders by treyfinley1008 on October 11, 2009

I found this fascinating quote today:

“Obama is the opening wedge of Gen Xers who will assume very high leadership posts. They are not yet the senior generals in control of the military, but they are taking over the reins of government and, of course, the top spots in American businesses.”, jenX67 | are you there God? it’s me, generation x

For those of you who might take issue with calling President Obama a Gen Xer, Jennifer points out in her blog that Strauss and Howe date Generation X from 1961-81.

OK–name them, the public leaders you know of who are 40 and under.  Who are they, and where are they leading?

    Thanks, Trey! I’m glad to have found your blog. I think I found you via Twitter first. I think…through a search of #genx hashtag.
