We are the party for the Young!
But, looking at California Democrats (and Democratic Party incumbents in the House and Senate), they do not let the younger candidates move up (Presidential Candidates are an Outlier, Congress is my measuring stick).
Let's look at the old faces of the Democratic House Leadership:
|(R-L) Democratic Whip Hoyer, 72; Assistant Whip Lewis, 72; Minority leader Pelosi, 71; Assistant Leader Clyburn, 71|
Now let's see the Republican Leadership of the House:
|(R-L) Republican Whip McCarthy, 47; Majority Leader Cantor, 48; Speaker Boehner, 62|
And here are Democratic Candidates in the basin:
|Rep. Berman, 71, running in the San Fernando valley|
|Rep. Maxine Waters, 73, running in South Los Angeles|
|Rep. Waxman, 72, running for the Westside|
Ask yourself this: Why don't Democrats allow their younger members to run things, yet Republicans do? Who is really the youth party?
And a final question: Could you imagine any Democrat walking into Ruin to campaign? I THINK NOT.
