About this older voter

According to most pollsters I am an “older voter.”  This came as a shock.

We were watching the returns from the New Hampshire primaries—as lifelong political junkies will do.  During the endless hours of meaningless chatter insightful analysis someone described the category of “older voter.”  And I am one.

Not sure how this could be because I still think of myself as an outside-the-box, idealistic youth.  In a nutshell, I’m an un-reconstructed ’60’s liberal, moderated perhaps slightly by a mortgage and our children’s orthodontia.
