Generations and presidential campaigns

He's a typical mature Reactive, the sort of President that one usually gets as the Crisis winds down or after it has wound down. The gross failure of Dubya made him possible. Would he have followed a better Boom (Gore?) or Silent (Lugar? Voinovich?) President than Dubya? Probably not.

He may have been 47 when he took the Presidency, but he certainly acted about 15 years older.

He also acted more like a boomer than Gen X in many ways.
