A friend of mine posted this in another fourm and I thought it was perfect for this one as well... KA
According to the "experts", if the election were held today, Senator
Obama would win.
Many of those experts are suggesting that a "generational shift" is
History has proven that when "generational shifts" occur, it means big
changes for the culture.
If we accept those three things as a fact for just a moment...
Lets play pretend...and ask ourselves the question, once the "newness"
What cultural changes would you predict are actually going to occur, if
we were to look back at the past, 4 years from now?
--General Behavior & Attitudes
Would the mere presence of Senator Obama in the White House cause these
changes to occur?
(or does he have to "do something specific" in order to kick start
things, and what would that specific thing have to be?)
Would the deepening financial crisis cause any potential cultural
changes that might occur to not occur?
(will people be too consumed with issues of financial survival and
"having fun" will simply be pushed to the "back burner?")
Or will there really be little "cultural change" at all, and we will
look back 4 years from now and things will be relatively the "same" as
they are today?
