He's a young man, not an old man, and Buttigieg, that's the point.
"When you look at me, my face is my message, is not it? A lot of this is just the idea, we need a change in the generations that we need more voices than a generation that has so many risks in decisions right now, if you move on to Pew's definition, he faces Bernie Sanders, who as potential candidate Joe Biden comes from the quiet generation born before the end of World War 2. Together with the baby boomers and Gen Xers, is four generations, spread unprecedented in the modern through
The generations are slowly changing, and there are different definitions of start and stop, but this is the first full year of the millennium to reach the constitutionally imposed age of 35 to take the position of President, born in 1
Changing the old guard was a consistent topic for Democrats this year. This year, they came under the control of the House of Representatives with a diverse new army of millennial lawmakers, whose figure is the freshman of the Republic of Alexandria Occasio-Cortez of New York. President Nancy Pelosi, a California politician who is also a Silent Generation politician, has managed to keep his lead in part by promising to adhere to the new leadership deadlines. according to Pu. This is the same generation as Barack Obama, born in 1961, and Senator Kamala Harris of California, who was born in 1964, the last year of a baby boom. We have not had President X yet, but there are seven candidates of that age running in 2020, according to the Pew definitions, by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York (born 1966) to Gabbard. Oddly, it may seem that between them there is a lesser difference in attitude than between, say, World War II veteran George H.V. Bush's Prosecutor and the Vietnam War Bill Clinton.
But Trump, like Biden, was looking for a delay to avoid the project during the Vietnam War. Sanders claims to be a conscientious objector. They will oppose Gabard or Butijg, the two youngest presidential candidates. Both were born years after the end of the Vietnam War and volunteering for the military in the patriotic period following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Buttigieg likes to point out that Americans born after September 11 will soon be stationed in Afghanistan. They will be able to vote in 2020.
Buttigieg, who is currently the youngest in this field, is making the power of his relative political inexperience. "I also think that age can be an advantage here," said Buttigie during a recent CNN Hall. "Just because it allows me to communicate to the country a vision of how our country will look like in 2054. This is the year I get to the current age of the current president."
He also says he runs a future in which he will live, which is something terrible but also has some meaning. "When you accept it personally, you know that this is not just something you worry about in theory, but you personally prepare for what the world will look like when – if God – comes to this age then I think it gives you a different sense of urgency. "
Although Biden, Sanders and Trump will tell you
Even Buttigieg stopped MSNBC to say that age is a disqualificator
" It's not my place to tell if anyone else should be a president. And see, let's be clear, you will see that older voters vote for younger candidates and younger voters voting for older candidates, "he said." And that's fine. That's good. "
